Have a computer where the integrated SATA controllers failed, they do not have a backup system which allows the installation of "different/additional" storage controllers or "dissimilar" machines.
i've installed another SATA Controller, and the computer is able to boot of the drive, but not successfully load Windows and
runs through the various "repair" options but fails.
I've scanned the hard drive with various hard drive tools, including virus scans, the drive passes.
Prior to Vista and Win7, it was possible to manually edit files within the OS to manually include drivers and change drives, partitions, etc..etc..
I am attempting to use another backup system, to attempt to image the existing drive, and use their restore process to see if I can insert the additional controller drivers.
How might I accomplish this with Win7 if this doesn't work?
