I'm running SuSE 10.0 on a Sony Vaio (PCG FX-804).
I'd been working on it this evening and went to shut it down. An application
that I had open seemed to hang and I couldn't get access to the shutdown
menu on KDE.
After leaving it for a few minutes in the hope that it would end the
process, I ended up pressing the On/Off switch for a few seconds causing the
machine to shut off.
On restarting the laptop, I now get a message "Operating System not found".
It doesn't seem to recognise the hard drive. I've tried going into the Bios,
but the primary master says "None" and I cannot change it. When I reboot it
stops at the SONY logo, waits a few seconds then gives the "Operating System
not found" message.
Any suggestions as to how I might check the hard disk status?
Or is it terminal??
