Hard Drive won't boot Windows

I used to have a Dual Boot on my computer but I took out the Master and placed it in my New Comp. Now when I'm trying to use my old computer, the old hard drive won't boot up. I set that to master and everything but it won't boot up. It only boots when I put the other hard drive back in it together.

Yes.. because the booting information and booting files are sored only in active primary partition of a hard drive. i.e primary drive. if you remove the primary it wont recognize the OS with out booting information. you should need to reinstall OS.

If you have a previous video card in your computer you need to remove it first. Replace it with your new card and boot up. Check if the computer recognises it. If not go to install new hardware.
If there was no previous card, remove the new one, boot up comp and then close down
Try re-installing it.

Booting problem


I'm thinking the boot sector or master boot record was not written to the new disk or is corrupted.

Try running the recovery console from the installation CD and take a look at FIXBOOT and FIXMBR

PC w/ Vista. Can add 2nd drive with Win 7 and transfer all data & programs?


Try and get a disc clone software and use this instead.
Second, you need to set the jumper on the hard discs in order to configure your drives as either Master or Slave too.

okay you will need to put a boot record on the other drives see the boot record is on C to boot from D and so forth so what you can do is this from command prompt type is "sys mbr", if that does not work you will need to remount the drive using a disk manger software like spinright, and so forth or simply creating a bootable partition under disk admiistration under the control panel.

I hope this does help.

Because your modem is from your old computer, the modem may have problems running with Windows Vista. I would suggest using Windows XP on your computer and you should have no problems.

EMACHINE T6534 COMP. WANT BOOT . TRYING TO CHANGE V-CARDS


This could be a few things though if you have already checked the memory and HD. The next thing I would tell you is that you should check the cpu. Also make sure that everything in the BIOS is set to the default settings when you start it.

Installation of one touch mini 4


hello, if you are adding an extra hard drive for space make sure to change the teeny jumper to the proper pins next to the connection slots on the hard drive. the jumper makes your hard drive work as a slave (extra drive) or a master (main drive). if you have a main drive allready on your comp and you dont switch the jumper the slave position the computer will not recognize it becuase of the new hard drives jumper being in the master position or pin connector.
if your installing it as a 2nd master drive you need to use your extra hard drive slot on the mother board for this to work as a secound master then you need the jumper in the master pin slot. there is a small diagram on to the hard drive info label it looks like pins and it shows you where to locate or place the jumper for either master or slave.
for a slave drive once you have placed the jumper properly then you can instal it on the same cable with the main. look at the cable it will have a main and a slave small label printon the connector or if you prefer you can use the 2nd hard drive cable on the secound slot on the mother board turn on your comp if you are going for a extra hard drive the comp should recognize it if the jumper is properly placed. when your comp is running you can check by going into (computer) and it should be there as a new drive letter

after this you may need to format the drive for use. you right click on the hard drive letter and choose format drive

hope this helps good luck with your upgrade.

Trying to boot from a hd from my old comp


Hi,

MS Windows XP when installed to an HD will "marry" itself to the hardware of the original computer specifically the motherboard. Transplanting the HD to another PC with a different motherboard will result in a cycling blue screen of death or protective message requiring that you reboot. Running in Safe Mode will not also be allowed.

You need to re-install your OS (boot from CD) but choose the 2nd repair option rather than a new/clean install or the first repair option if you want to preserve your other applications as well as your settings/configuration. Doing this will allow the OS to install the new device drivers and delete the old ones.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

God luck and kind regards.
