I've some trouble with my satta drives, I've solved the problems usin my XP os..... Due to evolving hardware iSwitched to win 7 win 2008 R2 with virtualisation ready to be activted. I've found programs as HDDScan Version 3.1 .... to access the SATA disks directly (I only have sata Disks) WIll virtualisation allow me to access the disk drive directly ???? do I need to do some special things to activate this kind of virtualisation . i would suspect virtualisation to use the win7 drivers ... leaving me completyely in the cold any way out ....?????
