Question about Computers & Internet
I'm having trouble booting to a Win XP OS installed on a hard drive. Every time I start the computer up, the BIOS screen flashes, and then it stops responding at a black screen with the white cursor blinking at the top. I know the hard disk has an OS installed, as I hooked it up to a working comp and checked it out.
The strange thing is, when I disconnected the hard disk from the computer I'm trying to get to boot, when I start it up without anything for it to read an OS from, it does the exact same thing as when the hard disk is connected. This seems like a hardware issue, but which hardware could it be?
Are you making the disk the "master" device when you plug it in to the PC?
