    I wanted to continue this in the other topic, but it would be off topic anyway. my HDD was formatting at 45% when the power to my crappy little basement died. When the power came back, my HDD was no longer recognized by bios, I had to use my other HDD for now. but this HDD is not currently recognized even by bios, anyone know a solution?

    It happens to me once... And I had to trash my HD (it was not formatting though, just reading, when the power went off).

    I had no way get back my datas or even get my HD recognized by the BIOS...

    hapenned to me too. You need to install an os on another HDD then try Partition Magic 8 and Easy Recovery to get back your HDD. Might work

    Yeah this is worth a try. I did the same thing... It didn't work, but it's better to try it before trashing your HD !
