Why does my Hard Drive say only 7mb?
I installed a SSD HD into my new Thinkpad SL510.
Install Win7 x64.
Installed wireless drivers, Hotkey and Ultranav.
Rebooted and the system hung at post
I shut it off and it then said ‘No OS found’
When I slaved the HD to my old system and went into Disk maintenance it only showed the HD as being 7mb.
I could Initialize it but it did not change anything.
I then converted it to 'Basic' and now the 7mb that was showing on the right side is now a blank partition.
There is no drive letter attached to it so I'm not able to run CHKDSK or any other utility.
Verified that the BIOS had the HD set at AHCI the whole time.
Now I know this is not the HD because it happened on 3 different HD’s.
2 of the HD's I was able to install the OS just fine and it would even reboot ok a couple of times and then crash.
The third HD I tried to Ghost it with both 'Ghost' and 'Casper' and it bombed during that process and again showed up the same as the first 2.
I even tried running HDDERASE at the DOS level and it failed.
I can see this happening to 1 drive but 3 of them.
Have you ever heard of this and know what happened?
