I have a 500 gig WD Blue drive. I was formatting it to get rid of a broken Ubuntu install. It just froze completely (the formatting program) so I closed it. Now the drive is not visible to disk management or even diskpart BUT is visible to device manager. With the drive plugged in my PC refuses to boot. I can hear the spindle running and the head doing its startup thing. But then nothing. The drive isn't visible as RAW or anything, and I can't find it in the BIOS because it prevents me from getting that far. My dad is a tech guy for Cold Jet (he's experienced) and couldn't find the problem. I've spent two hours poring over the internet and trying to get it working, but no luck. Any thoughts?
(I use 64 bit Win7 with 16 gigs of RAM and an OC'd i7 2600k. Kind of prehistoric, huh?)
