|Recently my motherboard has blown up so i have put another computer together that was working fine. I used this computer for a couple of days and have put my old HDD (from the computer that the motherboard blew up on) as a slave to get access to my docs.|
I made sure the jumper was in the right place etc etc and when booting up, the system would just keep restarting. Thinking that the slave drive was the problem, booted in safe mode and got access and shut down properly, thinking this would solve the problem. It didnt!!
Disconnected the slave and tried rebooting and it is still restarting as it is entering windows. I have tried repair with chkdsk /p and chkdsk /r but still doing the same thing.
My thinking cap has run out of ideas and really need some help.
The system i am running is XP Pro but my old HDD is XP Home. Is there something conflicting? Also, is there a way of using my XP Home HDD as a master, doesnt have the drivers on it though!!!
