Second boot sector unwriteable
Posted on 2005-04-25
My system running XP Home refused to start one day, with a disk error message. Got it going by running chkdsk, but same thing happened a couple of days later. After a bit of research I concluded the hd was probably dying, so I cloned it onto a new disk. No problems starting the system since, but running chkdsk on startup it says "second boot sector in unwriteable". I can't identify any other problem, the sytem starts and runs apparently normal, so should I be worried by this, and is there a way out?
