I recently bought new parts except for a HD(Maxtor 20GB). When I try installing win2k pro, an error comes up right before it loads win2kpro from my cd-rom. It says

Disk I/O Error Status: 00008071
Failed to ArcRead the Boot Partition for a signature.

I checked online and made sure, the IDE cables were ok, the HD was reformated, jumpers were setted correctly,and the onboard virus was disable and yet the error still comes up? Anybody have a solution to this problem? Thanks

Update:

Just test the computer with another of my HD(WD 60GB). problem free. like I suspectd from the start, its the HD. It worked perfectly fine the other day and when I plugged in as a slave drive to another computer, in Disk Management(win2k), it also said healthy. I deleted the partition and reformatted again as Basic/NTFS. yet the problem still continues.

Try the following steps:

1. Disable the virus warning, if any, in your CMOS and restore the BIOS defaults.
2. Check your jumper settings. The jumper settings must be set appropriately (either master/slave/cable select) for the spot they are connected to on the IDE cable. If it is the only drive, you need to have it set to master and have the drive connected to the appropriate spot marked on the cable (see your drives documentation if you have any questions regarding this)
3. Boot the system with only the HDD on the IDE channel (no other devices connected to the same cable).

The steps I provided have been used in the past for the same issues (both by myself and with other users online)... my recommendation would be to PAQ and award the points to the post made on 04/19/2004 01:56PM CDT... Up to you guys though.
