Hdd Powers up in PUIS without jumper

Ok i have 2 WD hdd that power up like this, they dont show in bios and wont show in Win 7 or xp, i can make them show if i boot up in linux first and do a restart, but if i shutdown my computer or let it go into stand by it will not show the drive again, dose anybody know how to change this, there isnt a jumper on either one so its not physically set to power up like this

  1. You could use HDAT2 to disable PUIS. To wake up the drive, you will need to start HDAT2 with the /w switch, ie ...

    If that doesn't work (some WD models had a PUIS bug), then the following fix should do it:
