I have been having some problems with my main HDD. Sometimes I would start my computer and win 7 would hang before it goes to the windows starting screen. I would go into BIOS and my drive would not even show. This has been happening numerous times.... Long story short, I decided to purchase a new drive, install a fresh copy of Win 7 and use the old drive to transfer my saved files over. Bought an HDD Enclosure to use externally but that keeps asking me to format my drive when i connect it, which i cannot do yet until I retrieve the files I need. So what I do is hook up the drive to my comp and set BIOS to read from the new drive first. (These are SATA by the way) But for some reason as soon as I have this drive plugged in internally it hangs at the Windows starting screen... How do I get this drive to act as a slave drive to retrieve some of my files?
