Help Installing New Hard Drive
Posted on 2003-03-08
This is a pretty difficult problem in my opinion. I know a fair amount about computers and the way they work and have been working a few days trying to get this to work.
I was having some problems with my hard drive so i got a new one and installed it and then installed windows XP on it. Then i wanted to transfer files from my old hard drive. So i hooked up the old hard drive too and thats when the problems began. Now the computer won't boot at all with out the old hard drive hooked up. So i tried reinstalling Windows XP on the new HD and it errored in the middle and i can't get it going again. It gives me crap about swap files or something like that. I think the problem is in my jumper settings and cable configurations. Please help, i'm running on my old HD now but i'm desperately looking for ideas so i can try it out. Thank you, any thing will be of assistance. -Mitch
