Boot XP from external hard disk, or boot loader problem?
Posted on 2007-10-15
HI , I have 250GB sata hard disk with installed XP on it, and I want to use it as external, with USB interface. I bought HDD Ecnlosurer which uses USB to connect to the computer.
I have the fallowing on my computer:
1 hard disk of 80Gb IDE, with Linux partition on it
and the disk I want to use as external. As bootloader I use grub.
When I put the hard disk on the HDD Ecnlosurer i set the bios to start from it (it recognized it fine) and started the computer.
Firstly i got the GRUB interface (which tells me that it started reading from the 250GB HDD)
when selecting the linux option, it works fine, but when selecting the windows XP option, I get the fallowing error:
A disk read error accured
Pres ctrl+alt+delete to restart."
Is this a problem with the boot loader or with the windows XP starting from external HDD?
HOw can i solve it?
Thanks for any help
