I also think it must be the hard drive controller, because the drive works fine in my desktop but not in my Sager. Guess I'm going to have to find out from Sager how much it will cost to fix it.

Seems like the harddisk controller is faulty. On cold starts, it often finds the harddisk once..but when hot it will not.
Anyone esle got anything esle to add, I am gonna contact the supplier and hopefully get it fix.
The hardisk interface is very close to the CPU, where most of the heat is generated, I suspect the cable or the controller might be affected by heat.
