|OK, so here's the scoop.|
My computer is running XP pro. I started suddenly having major issues with it not allowing me to get on line, then I could not scan with any anti virus or mal ware program with out the machine crashing. I got everything fixed, or so i thought, for about a week, then it was worse. It got to the point it would crash every 10 minuets. All of the restore points were deleted also.
So, I did what everyone was telling me to do, and tried to do a repair install on the existing XP system. Well, that failed. It would get to registering componets, and crash back, and restart the install. I tried this about a dozen times, and gave up. It would not even allow me to format the disk, so I assume the disk is bad.
Now, I took a couple of sata drives I have, set them up in raid config, and installed a frsh xp on that. My system has a heart beat again.
When I plug my other hard drive in from the old install, it assings drive D to it, and says it is not formatted and is unusable currently. This drive is formated, and contains all of my programs and files.It was partitioned into 3 seperate drives.
1. How do I make the new XP see these files.
2. Can I make the drive and the paritions active again?
3. Is there a program that will remap the programs to the fresh install of XP?
4. any other tips on this?
Thanks guys and gals, any help is apperciated!!
