Moved hard drive, blinking cursor
Posted on 2006-05-07
I took the hard drive running Windows 2000 out of an old Pentium I machine and put it into a Pentium III machine. I know the hard drive is fine and the operating system boots fine on the Pentium I machine. However, although the BIOS recognises the hard drive in the Pentium III machine, when it tries to boot all that appears is a blinking cursor, i.e. the _ symbol just flashing.
Is there anything I can do to make it work? I don't want to know about reformatting drives, re-installing, etc. because I know how to do that - I just don't want to, which is the reason I am asking in here :)
