Can't boot into Win XP with SATA HD installed
Posted on 2006-04-27
I am attempting to recover data from a failed Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 Serial ATA HD. I cannot boot to it when it is installed in its original Dell Dimension 4700. I am now connecting it to an Adaptec SATA 1205SA Host Controller in a different PC. When I try booting with it connected, Windows XP begins to boot but then I get a brief blue screen and the PC restarts. The SATA card is installed properly in Device Manager and I have successfully done this before with SATA hard drives. Also, according to the documentation for the hard drive there are no slave/master jumper settings. Any suggestions? Thank you.
