Question about Maxtor Hard Drive
I'm adding an internal hard drive to my pc. I want to set it up for dual boot with media center on the original hard drive. And XP pro on the new drive. The original drive has two jumpers & they're set for master.The new drive (Maxtor) has one jumper set for cable select, but also has an extra jumper in the package. After reading the instructions,From what I can figure is to install the extra jumper on the maxtor & set it to the cable select diag. on the original hard drive & do the same with the original drive so that both drives are set to "Cable select" with "Two Jumpers". My reason for doing this is to run Pro Tools 7.4 which has conflicts with Media Center,My original operating system. So I'm adding the maxtor to to run XP Pro for Pro tools on a dual boot system. Is this the correct settings for the Jumpers on the Hard Drives. Please Help!
Install first the media center on the primary harddrive with master jumpered.. when everything is working fine... then proceed to
the next harddrive. Set its jumper to slave not cable select and install xp pro, it ask you for an option to have dual boot then select the location of windows to be installed...
Hoping this helps... Fixya!!!

There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.
The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables
Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.
make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS
hope this helps you
