Have you checked the CMOS settings for the correct HD parameters? The
"sector not found" error sounds like the HD is being recognized, and it
is possible that a low level format followed by a high level format
might solve the problems. *My* preference in such cases is to use
Spinrite as it can reformat the drive without losing data ... assuming
the original data is still accessible.
