Stop errors on win2k boot
Posted on 2004-09-16
Brand new dell machine with a single SATA drive installed. I added another ATA disk and the two work perfectly together with the second old disk showing up as D:
I wanted to make the machine dual boot with a second copy of win 2k on the second, older disk.
Used powerquest drive image to create a backup of the original SATA drive supplied with the machine and then restored the image onto the second, older disk. Since Dell didn't supply a driver disk, this seemed the easiest way to get an optimum install on the second disk without having to spend a day tracking down all the drivers.
Modified the boot.ini to add the new OS as a bootable partition
When I try to boot from this restored partition I get a stop error while windows is loading with the message "inaccessable boot device" error codes are 0xEB41F84C and 0xC0000034.
The second disk still shows up as D: when I boot off the original partition and I've run integrity checks on the disk which come up fine.
