Disk error occured on established HD
I searched, but I believe my case is unique, so bear with me:
I just installed a 1TB WD HDD because I needed to install a 32-bit OS (previously running 64-bit Vista on a smaller faster HDD). After 3 attempts, I finally got XP SP2 installed, and up and running. Naturally XP couldn't detect it's way out of a wet paper bag, so I am stuck with no drivers. No worries I think to myself, I'll just boot from my original Vista HDD and download what drivers I need. So I restart the computer, hit DEL to choose the original Vista HDD, and I get that stupid ****ing "disk read error occurred." This drive was running perfectly until I installed the brand new HD with XP SP2. How the **** could that have done this to my HDD and is there anything I can do to get it to boot? If this matters, when I am in XP I can see and access the Vista HDD and all the files on it, it just simply will not boot. WTF? Please help.
