However, when I attached my 80 GB Barracuda HDD with XP OS in it (in Secondary IDE Slave) & Lite-On DVD ROM into the system (in Primary IDE Master), the computer screen displayed that 'No Operating System is found' even though I configured it in the system BIOS. Then, I tried to arranged the installation of DVD ROM as Primary Master & HDD as Primary Slave - the HDD content was then recognized BUT when the screen display error message with selections of Start Windows normally, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking & Last Good Configuration that works - it keeps on Rebooting. Can you help me to solve this problem? thanks a lot. best regards

Foreign disks, or drives that have pre-existing operating systems installed with prior configurations, are often prone to error unless transplanted into systems with a nearly identical configuration.

The only simply way to rectify this issue is to boot off of the Windows installation disk and perform an "In-place Upgrade" or a "Re-install" of Windows. This method will re-install just the main portions of Windows, and write the new configuration, while in theory not disturbing the rest of the drive's data.

While this is a documented and intended function of the Windows installer it does have its issues.

I can say with confidence that you can attempt this, but I would suggest confirming that you have all necessary data backed up before you do.

As far as the other alternative, you can always save your data, plugging the drive into a different machine, and then do a clean install which is a much better choice as far as performance and stability, but the choice is yours.

This link to Microsoft's site further explains the necessary steps for an "In-Place Upgrade" which really means a Re-installation of a Full Copy (Not an upgrade copy) of Windows, if you were concerned about the terminology.

Those are your options. Should you require any more information, please let us know. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate this solution, Thank you.

Still lagging in WoW!


Answered originally by TimIsHectic:

Assuming you mean a bad framerate and not actual 'lag', the problem would appear to exist in your processor, as it is old and outdated. and only just fits the minimum requirements to RUN THE GAME, not run the game well.

Answer: You should upgrade your CPU to a Pentium Dual-core at least.

You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
