Wouldn't boot from C: and didn't see D:, which is a separate hard drive. Repeatedly informed me that the boot sequence had changed; usually only says so once if at all. The black tower told me to insert a boot disk, which I didn't try. Setup refused to find the D: drive despite several attempts by two methods in Setup.
The IDE ribbon felt firmly in place at all 3 connectors. Nonetheless, I unplugged each of the three and pushed them back in.
That's all. Fixed.
Oh, and sleeping overnight and extra before opening the case probably made it less likely I'd do two to four things all at once.
And a similar problem arose on my other tower. Second hard drive disappeared. Same solution. Pulled and repushed one ribbon.
