After installing 2nd Hard drive system will not boot
Posted on 2004-03-29
Hi guys... time for a little help from you again. Here is the scenario:
I have a customres PC here. His hard drive basically ran out of space. I intend to ghost the old drive to a new larger drive. OS is win98SE.
Problem: Old drive is WD24300, new drive is WD40GB. When I install the new drive (jumpered as slave) on the same cable the system will not boot. I have tried different jumper settings on the original drive and it will only accept 'single' (no jumpers) in order to boot. How can I get these 2 drives to play nicely??? I simply want to boot up, and ghost to the new disk! I am putting high points on this since I need this system ready by tomorrow morning!
Thanks in advance!
