    Oops. Missing disk after reboot...


    I powered down, pulled my PCI/IDE controller card with a disk on it to clean up some dust.

    I powered back up, and had NOT plugged it back in. Now it's missing from fdisk, /etc/fstab, and the 2 OS's on it return with 'Disk does not exist'.

    How do I reset this?

    The cable is good - I swapped it to the primary IDE, rebooted, and both ODD's showed up.

    The PCI/IDE controller card is showing up in 'lspci':
    Code:
    01:08.0 RAID bus controller: Silicon Image, Inc. PCI0680 Ultra ATA-133 Host Controller (rev 02)
    and lshw:
    *-storage
    description: RAID bus controller
    product: PCI0680 Ultra ATA-133 Host Controller
    vendor: Silicon Image, Inc.
    physical id: 8
    bus info: pci@0000:01:08.0
    version: 02
    width: 32 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: storage bus_master cap_list
    configuration: driver=pata_sil680 latency=32 module=pata_sil680
    The disk attached to it does not show in lshw.

    What's up there Roky!

    I just pulled the disk, and plugged it into a external USB enclosure.

    In BIOS, IDE primary shows one CD drive master, one DVD drive slave. Secondary IDE shows master and slave hard disks, but those 2 ain't the problem disks...

    It's the one on the PCI/IDE card - the one I put PCLOS on with that link you posted up a few weeks ago.

    In the USB enclosure, the disk spun up and mounted.



    Do I need to get mount info to transfer back somehow??? UUID's?

    Either the molex connector is powerless, or it's a BIOS setting (which I haven't changed)...

    The reason I mentioned bios is because on my Amrel Laptop running Award Bios ver 8 I have to use what is called a autodetect function that is in the cmos for it to see a different hardrive after it's been disconnected for any reason, I just tell it to auto detect drives and bios does its thing and remounts hardrive back onto the laptop so it'll boot up. Otherwise I just get a No Drive detected error if I don't do that. I'm not real hip on what you are trying to do with that pci adapter so I can't be of much help there. Its just that you are saying it jammed up because you forgot to reconnect it. Thats why I mentioned bios.

    Molex is good. 5V from hot to ground, 12V from yellow to ground.

    BIOS is all that's left.
