  • Hard disk drives may not be recognized after update 943899 is applied. Certain SATA hard disk drives are not recognized after a computer resumes from sleep or hibernation when v1.0 of update 934899 has been applied. The drives are sent incorrect data, and the data changes several hard disk settings. One of these settings is “power up on standby mode." This behavior keeps the hard disk from spinning, and the system will not start. This hard disk problem was resolved by v2.0 of update 943899 which was published on February 11, 2008.
