Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
My Whole System Crashed So I Took The Hard Drive From My Gateway Pentium III And Put It In Another Computer And Up Graded My OS From Win Me To Win Xp And It Won't Boot, And It Gives Me A Message "Failure To Boot". What Do I I'm Thinking Either It's Not Recoginizing My Hardware Or I Made A Mistake In Ribbon Cables. Please Help.
i do agree with you about the ribbon cables please make verry sure that they are connected right ie set as master or slave also make sure that the ribbon is tight and then make sure that you boot into bios and see if the computer can recognize the drive and see if it is set to master or slave and see if there are any jumpers on the hard drive that match with what bios is telling you cause if the bios is set to master and you have the jumper set to slave it will not work
