2.USB Hard Drive
3.NoteBook Hard Drive
when i install windows xp on this portable harddisk.
When all the files from Windows xp CD copied into the seleted partition as in usual installation.As u see that after coping the files system restarts and after that remaining installation of OS occurs.
The problem with me is that when laptop restrat after coping files it shows a msg------Unable to load Operating System...
Plz Help Me......
For further information plz mail me.
Tips for a great answer:
make sure that the HDD IDE cable is plugged in properly on both ends. It is a
40 pin female cord which should be seated on IDE channel 1 on the motherboard.
2) Make sure that all the CD/DVD drives are on IDE 2 or on SATA
3) Make sure taht the Jumper setting on the back of the HDD is set to MASTER
4) Login to bios and make see if you can find the HDD from the IDE drives menu. I am sure you will. From Boot menu select the NATIVE mode that will activate both the SATA and the IDE channels. Select HDD as second boot device.
