New Hard drive and boot problem.
Hey guys, Thanks for taking the time to help me and read this.
I have an XP pro computer, my current Hard drive is connected through IDE and currently set to slave, this is noticed in my Bios.
I also have a new hard drive which im using for storage, this is a SATA drive.
Now the problem is, when I just have my IDE drive in, windows boots fine, but when I connect the new SATA drive, after the XP loading screen, my computer freezes, on a black screen and does nothing.
I can get into the bios when the new drive is connected and that is also reconised, and the IDE is set to the main drive.
Help please, I would like to use my new 500gb drive.
Thanks alot guys.
PS I am quite technical, so dont be scared to use techy jargon.
