    When I boot from Sysrescue and attempt to scan hard drive the hard drives are not available to check for scan. I am confident they are attached properly. Anyone aware of why this might be.
    TIA

    Perhaps you're using non-standard hardware and Windows PE requires additional drivers to recognize the drive.

    Thanks for responding. It is an Intel server board. Hmm

    Needed to turn off the raid on the MB bios.

    Do you have any SCSI controllers in your PC?

    Most probably it is matter of drivers for some types of HDD controllers, which are not by default in WinPE and therefore need to be injected via SysRescue Wizard in building process.

    As he wrote, it was missing RAID drivers that prevented Windows PE from recognizing the disk.
