IDE and SATA do not mix unless setup properly.
I would use the SATA one as main hard drive and set the other up as an external one on USB
Try resetting the BIOS to boot from CD
on ter lower part of boot screen will tel you the key to press to access the BIOS setup
Usually one of these keys
F2 CTRL+ESC or DEL
when in BIOS check and set to boot from CD

How do I restore to factory settings . I have restore disc part 900345 when I tried using it nothing really prompted me what to do . Any suggestions would be appreciated.


You need to change the boot order to make the machine read the cd drive first.When starting the computer you need to press F2.This will get you into the start up bios menu.Find the boot order and make it use the cd drive as the first device.Now restart your machine withe the cd in the drive.

HOW DO I FIX THIS ERROR THAT I GET WHEN I BOOT MY COMPUTER ITS A LAPTOP RUNNING WINDOWS XP PRO IT CRASHED AND I TRIED REINSTALLING WINDOWS AND THIS IS WHAT I GOT A MESSAGE SAYING THIS BOOTMGR IS MISSING...


Is a long and hard process and you need to be patient.

You can obtain Windows XP Setup boot disks from Microsoft, but only by download.They provide the Setup boot disks so that you can run the Setup program on computers that cannot use a bootable CD-ROM.. If you can start your computer from a CD-ROM or from a network-based installation, we strongly recommend that you use those installation methods instead.

You need to make a boot disk for a Windows XP system. .A boot disk can start the operating system on a computer running Windows XP if it will not boot properly and the damage is suspected to be in the files that start Windows.
Problems occur, issues arise, and most times it's unavoidable. Corruption or a boot sector virus can render just about any system dead in the water. So what could happen? In this section we cover some basic issues that can occur so that you just what your up against and why a boot disk can be very handy.

If you are not sure ask help from somebody that can understand this procedures.

My aspire m5641 wont format to vista it freezes when i "select the driver to be installed" then suddenly freezes plzz help


Acer is known for that. The easiest way to format the hard drive is to insert any windows installation cd, then when the computer first powers on, press F12 and change the boot order to boot from cd. Follow the instructions through, and one of the steps will ask you to format the hd. Another way is to hook up the hd secondary on another computer and format it.

Dell Optiplex GX270 lockup and s3 standby lockup


have you tried changing your boot sequence (setting your hd as first boot source?) in set-up?
just asking- if you still have cd as first boot device, it should go to second choice (hd?), with no problem, but you might try re-setting to manufacturers settings, and go from there! is it set for pnp support? check all this stuff!
amber means 'standbye- or sleep mode'- tapping a key, or mouse button should bring it out. every manufacturer has their 'little quirks', that can be confusing!!
good luck!

Need floppy to boot in XP PRO on HD


Hi, if you can boot using xp cd then instead of going into recovery console you can elect to install xp. The cd will search for existing installations and offer to repair for you. If you are able to get this option it will not delete your programs or personal stuff. You will need your xp code and you may need to reactivate windows when finished. If it doesn't offer repair then f3 to exit so you don't overwrite your personal stuff.

Gateway MX6927 Windows Xp won't boot


put your xp disk in the optical drive.Turn off computer. Turn computer back on as soon as you turn it on start tapping f 12 constantly.it should go the boot menu giving you a choice of booting from cd or hard drive choose boot from cd.Be sure you choose repair rather than new installation or you could loose all your information stored on the hard drive,I personally would try safe mode first you can get to safe mode by tapping f 6 when you first turn on your computer.

Hard Drive Prevents any other windows device from loading


Hi, Mark Here.
Yes the setup on the xp install puts drivers into memory, but being an older version of windows B4 sta was out it does not have drivers to support it.

You could go to Microsoft & search for a new version of setup install drivers that includes sta, & download to thumb.
Really typical Windows Failure (driver not available freeze up or blue screen).
