Assuming this is a SATA drive do you know if the laptops'
BIOS supports running the SATA controller in AHCI mode?
If you can enable that in the BIOS and use UDP Cast's AHCI
SATA driver are you then able to see the drive? If you weren't
aware of this, if you decide to configure the SATA controllers
to run in AHCI mode you may have to rebuild any disk images
that were originally prepared with the controllers set to
operate in IDE mode; as I understand it you'll run into
problems in Windows if you change the operating mode of the
controller after installation of the OS.
