|May peace be on U.I generally install xp from harddisk.I keep a copy of xp ie i386 folder in my E drive(3rd partition of my 30 GB Hd).I bought a another PC.My 30 GB hd got damaged bcoz we generally work with 2 harddisks at a time to copy data from one to other,so then i changed its externel part(chip) .Now it started working but its speed was very slow.So i changed some settings in BIOS ie disabled LBA,DMA etc. and its speed recovered.My 20 GB hd works fine with auto settings but 30 GB works fine only with customised settings,with auto and some other settings it says ntldr error and speed becomes extremely slow.|
Now the problem is that when i start xp from dos using winnt file,the setup cannot copy even a single file.May the changing of chip,bios settings made this problem.
If I format the 30 GB may it then works with auto Bios settings and then also xp setups fine.now i have XP sp1 Norton ghost in 30 GB but i want to install real xp sp2 fro my E drive.
Plz tell what should i do to make my 30 GB work with auto Bios settings and let xp installl from dos(winnt).
