christopher wheeler, possible 'ultra66 bios' is some sort of proprietary proggie? Never heard of it. Think I'd run a worm/trojan scan just in case. May not help, but can't hurt.

Is this a PATA/IDE HDD you're asking about? Does your motherboard support ATA66? Are you using an ATA66 ribbon cable?

You can't run a preinstalled version of xp on your computer.

Not only is it illegal but it was installed in a different system so it has different drivers, dll's, registry entries, etc. not to mention seen differently by the drive hardware which usually results in it not booting [different drive geometry]

The message "ultra66 (bios) not installed " is normal if there is no ultra66 drive connected to the ultra 66 interface. This is a hardware message not a windows message.
