Heh.... I haven't gotten around to deciding if I want to risk borking my drive a second time to verify, but it was running this under XP that borked my SSD in the first place.... win7 worked fine, XP seemed to work fine for my IDE drive, but when it tried to do the SSD it not only made the partition unreadable, but borked it to a point where the XP install disk would hang as soon as it tried to access the drive.... doing a full hdderase resolved the issue.

Now, this may have been a one-of.... it may have been something to do with the fact that I'd installed xp then win7 then went back to XP on the SSD, but I normally remove all partition information before installing a fresh OS.
