Dimension 8250, Xp Home
2 bootable hard drives:
Primary drive 0 = WD Raptor WD740ADFD 74GB 10000 RPM sata w/sata controller card
Backup drive 1 = Seagate ST380215A ide
Happens a couple times a week. Boot computer and it gives missing boot.ini. Shut down, go to bios and set to boot off of ide drive, reboot. Check sata druve for boot file and it's gone. Copy boot.ini from ide to sata, reboot to sata and everything works fine. The only errors or warnings in the event viewer is "an errof was detected on device\Device\Harddisk1\D uring a paging operation".
What do I need to look for that is causing the sata drive to lose the boot.ini?
