Dear all, Have a computer with multiple hard drives. Everything was working fine until a power cut. Now the computer only sees the hard drives on the IDE ports, not the added ATA PCI card controller. When the computer boots it also now does an IDE scan (8212 RAID BIOS v1.4..1.6,ASUS NCCH-DL motherboard)and comes up with the message "error! firmware not ready" briefly before continuing bootup. Have tried changing the added ATA card to another position, but makes no difference. Can anyone help?
OPTION 1 - Repair XP by replacing corrupt files Type
in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
