Re: External eSATA invisible in Vista - OK in XP (dual-boot)
What do you mean by "a BIOS update that coincided with some Windows updates
in Vista"? BIOS updates only happen when you intentionally do a BIOS update
(which for most users is never). BIOS updates are not a part of updating
Vista. Please give the make and model of your computer and the specs.
