Did you manually inspect the caps on the motherboard? The Dell machine is my primary work machine, at least until it dies, and I would really like to get it to where it recognizes my 6 or so larger multi-terabye drives. Open the case and remove the motherboard battery. Causes all sorts of weird problems. I am pretty sure the C drive is on master jumpers, so the computer shouldn’t get in a muddle as to which drive to boot from?
