Hi there, I run the maxllf.exe on a Maxtor HDD. It completed without error. I forget to do the fdisk to partition it before reboot the system. After the system reboot, the hdd is recognized in the BIOS, but not pass the POST during boot up.
Is there a utility to fix the partition on this hdd now?
Whats the exact error you get from POST regarding the drive? Also Maxtor has its own HDD Diagnostic tools which you can use. Ultimate Boot CD, bartpe, hirens and many other bootable software you can use, which come with many software to check or partition the drive.
I had something like this once. I was reinstalling Windows 7, and the installer messed up the disk, after I deleted the existing partitions and selected to install to the empty space. The computer couldn't past POST, I couldn't even go to BIOS.
I had to take out the HDD (it is a laptop), and put it in an USB enclosure. Then, I connected it to another computer (with Windows 7), and went into Disk Management. It appeared as raw, so I formatted it (still in Disk Management), and it worked in the laptop afterwards, no problem at POST.
