I seem to be full of strange ones with this installation. This is something that has existed from the very start of my installation in November, but I just haven't bothered to do anything about it. It doesn't seem to be affecting the system in any way, but it's strange nonetheless. 1) After going through the problems I detailed in my previous post (http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/14613), I still have my old WinXP drive listed as Active - see image attachment 01 - 3rd drive down shows "Healthy (Active, Primary Partition) - since it's still a Basic disk, will converting it to Dynamic remove those attributes? 2) You'll notice that there are 2 drives at the bottom of that same image that have the red X and indicate "Failed" - the drive sizes match both my new Win7 boot drive [Primary W7 (C] and my old WinXP boot drive (which is D - they do not "Reactivate", and I am not certain I want to select "Delete Volume" as I am concerned about it also deleting the contents of the "actual" drives (C: & D. Also "odd" is that both the "Missing" drives show as Dynamic, when actually only the one drive (now the C: drive) was previously dynamic - but that was under WinXP! Has anyone encountered this before? Re-running Detect Devices doesn't change anything, and I've not been able to find any other references to this "ghost" situation anywhere. The 2nd & 3rd image attachments show the drive status in the 2nd half of the Disk Management window - interesting that my Primary drive shows as Disk 2, when it's the Master IDE drive and the D: drive is the IDE Slave (both set on cable select) - don't know if that makes a difference or not. the rest of the drives are either IDE on a PCI card or SATA drives. Thanks for any assistance!!!
