Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4/1GB
I would like to move my current (2) Hard Drives to my secondary IDE Controller instead of my Primary. Reason being the primary is kinda broken because it always defaults to PIO mode.
Hard Drive 1:200GB Seagate (Windows) - Has 3 NTFS Partitions:1 is windows, 2 are storage.
Hard Drive 2: 40GB WesternDigital (Just storage)

Now when i tried doing it and well when i start up my pc i get "GRUB , loading part 2" and it just hangs there.I adjusted BIOS settings. How can i fix this?
Running 32 bit Windows XP and nothing else.
Checked bootloader, here it is

"[boot loader]
[operating systems]
signature(1b6a39d4)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /fastdetect

Separate the 2 HDDs. Keep the one with the OS as the primary master & put the other on the secondary channel. What about optical you have one or two? If just one, put it on the 2ndary channel as well.

Why are you using GRUB?
