Question about ASUS P4PE Motherboard
System description: motherboard - asus P4PE hard drive(master) - Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD hard drive(slave) - Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 80GB Windows XP is installed in the master drive, while linux suse 10.1 is installed in the slave drive. At first everything was allright, I then decided to reformat the slave drive when I am running windows XP so that my windows XP will have more memory space. The slave drive was reformatted and was called drive G: Everything was allright till the following day when i switch on my computer again, this time, windows XP will not even boot. I checked the jumper settings on both drive, changing both of the drive's jumper settings to cable select, and change it again to one master and one slave, I also checked whether I have connected the cables correctly (black tip for master, grey for slave), I even tried to connect them vice versa using the cable, but windows XP still will not boot. I have also checked my BIOS settings, but everything to AUTO, still no luck. Another thing I tried doing was to unplug the slave drive and only my master drive is plugged in, windows XP will still not boot. This is the message I got: GRUB Loading stage 1.5. GRUB loading, please wait... Error 21 windows XP will not run after this message. Please advice. Thanks alot in advance!
Wow yea it's looking for grub/linux i did that same thing once you need the xp install disc insert that hopefully you can get into your bios then go and set it to boot from disc restart and go through the options till you get to repair and type in fixmbr
