I have a Quantum Fireball harddisk, size 20.5 GB. My computer has Award BIOS, v4.51PG, dated 03/07/2000. I am using Windows 2000 operating system.

The first time i bought the harddisk, i remember i dealed with the BIOS very much to make it detect the harddisk, and i managed to do that then. I had 3 partitions on the disk, 8192 MB, 8192 MB and 4096 MB.

However, i had some problems with my computer recently, and the BIOS settings were reset to defaults. Since then the BIOS cannot detect my harddisk. And now I don't remember how i managed to do this in the first time. I have all my personal data on that disk and i don't want to lose them. Can anybody help with this issue, i would appreciate that so much.

Thanks in advance.
