i have a 120 GB 8MB cache HD from Maxtor that is failing...
unfortunately i also have an NF7-S motherboard, so PowerMax won't give me an error code for the RMA form (nVidia chipsets are not compatible)...
anybody any ideas how i can get the RMA over with quickly ?
i don't really want to wait till they update their version of PowerMax so it's compatible with the nVidia chipsets...

let me recap the situation here,
the hard drive is partitioned in a partition of 20 GB (OS, apps and games) and one of 100 GB (data)...
now the HD won't boot anymore (out of the blue, happened suddenly),
if i put the HD on primary slave and boot from another HD, the 100 GB partition is still accessible and i am able to read/write to it...
if i try to format, it says the HD has an irrecoverable error in it and it stops the format-process
so formatting is not an option...
i will try just putting the HD in another rig and running powermax on that rig.
it should work because i will not boot from it (i will just put it on slave), and the other motherboard is one without any nVidia chipset...

I've used powermax on several types of mobo's (be sure to get the latest)
I can't say if one was a NF chip but chances are high.
I know the previous version had problems with it.
If you have to press Y at boot you got the old one.
f8 is the corerct one.
