I was trying repair an old Hitachi hard drive of mine with HDD Regenerator and plugged it in with a SATA to USB cable (shown in 1). But when I use HDD Regenerator and used the prescan option it proceeded up to 102MB, then it stopped with this error (shown in 2).
I'm running this in VMware Workstation because apparently HDD Regenerator causes problems for the hosts and the BIOS from the VM does not support changing form SATA to IDE.
My questions are:
- Is there any software that enables changing SATA to IDE live in the OS?
- Is there a way to emulate a external hard drive as an internal hard drive?
