|I'm a little konphused as to where/how the E drive is connected. Is it an external usb drive (in its own case); or is it actually physically installed into the computer.|
As you mention an E drive then presumably there is also a D drive somewhere - another physical drive (installed wherever) or is D an extended partition etc. on the first physical hard drive with C partition (drive)?
Presumably everything "was" OK until - when? What happened immediately prior to the problem as posted earlier?
And to clarify (at least for me...) - with the drive E disconnected physically (i.e. not attached via its ribbon cable, and power too if physically installed into the computer, or not attached via usb if external) - the system boots OK?
Very long shot... what does the bios show in terms of drives, and boot order etc.?
