Specs: Windows PE
Good morning. I have a notebook (SONY VAIO EB1E1R). After I redistributive of free space between two logical volume of single hard drive with Paragon Partition Manager, it became no longer seeing by operation system. I tried restore MBR and boot section with ERD Commander, but it not seeing hard drive too. There is two ways to solve this issue:

1) install manuracter's firmware for SATA controller.
The firmware must be on floppy drive, but I no have floppy drive then I have notebook;
2) set SATA in Compatibility mode, but BIOS on SONY VAIO EB-series no have this option then VAIO has substantly cutted BIOSes and can't set my SATA in "compatibility mode"
Both of them doesn't worked.

The problem was solved.

How I solved it:
disassembled notebook, eject hard drive from it and replaced it in other notebook in which "compatibility mode" suppported in BIOS. HDD was detected, OS and files of internal drive was detected by Windows PE (ERD Commander) but BIOS loader no detect it. Shall solve it futher.

I don't think this is a problem that can be fixed by changing a bios setting.

You can always buy an external floppy drive if that's the only problem.

I think paragon has an 'undo' feature but that information has to be on a floppy or flash drive that is created before you make any changes.

In one posting the person said they have to run 'startup repair' after booting from the windows disk. That was windows 7; I'm not sure about PE.

Did the paragon instructions offer any help?

They have so many different versions. This seems to be the download page for manuals for their most recent versions:

Or you may need to google your version along with manual.
