No, thank goodness! Just two separate drives. I'll try that Linux "boot disk" method. So far, no other machine has been able to read the drive. See It, yes, but not read it. What bugs me most is that this drive was made "dynamic" under Vista, but I cannot activate it under Win7. I could understand not being able to read it under XP (older version), but Win7 is a newer version.

I even tried moving the drive to a physical mount on the IDE cable, with the same results.
