I've been running my 9860 dual boot windows xp and ubuntu, yesterday i started getting a error 21 in grub when i tried to boot, which means the hard drive could not be found... I tried booting up from a windows xp disc to try recovery console, and to my horror the recovery console couldn't find my harddrive, neither can the windows xp installation program. However the drive still shows up in the sata/raid controller or whatever that shows on boot and i can modify/create and delete partitions on it using free fdisk with no problem..Anyone have any idea what could be causing this? At first i thought the drive was dead but free fdisk being able to work on it fine seems to void that theory?
