Hi,

I have a 160 GB hard drive, as my main hard drive. I installed windows on it, and during setup, partitioned it in to three drives. Loaded up windows, worked fine. 3 drives there, all good.

My windows got corrupt, and kept on gettin caught in a reboot loop when starting up. So i decided to install windows fresh and see what happens. I couldnt do nothing else. So i installed, and when Xp asked me where to install, there was only a 32GB drive showing. This was about the size of the first partition of the hard drive, c:/. I selected this and installed windows thinking that i would see the other 2 partitions. But i havent! All i ever see is the 32GB one.

Iv tried stuff in DOS, partition software, disk management, nothing will show the rest of the hard drive. Whats happened here? And can i get the other partitions back?

Im starting to think my hard drive may be dying!

You need to tell us about the rest of your computer.
Age, motherboard type etc. etc.

Is this a new drive?
What were you using before?
Has this just started happening?
