Before destroying all your files try repairing boot.ini.

Lots of sites will walk you through how to do this, here's one of the better ones:

Repair or Replace Boot.ini - How To Repair or Replace Boot.ini in Windows XP - Boot.ini

Worth a try. I didn't read you original posting, just noticed this through browsing.

Hi roatan. That helps. So as I mentioned in your other post. Hook up the Maxtor. Since it's a single drive in a newer case the hard drive should not have a jumper on it. Before the system asked for a boot disk. The reason you got that message is because either the boot.ini is corrupted or Windows XP start-up files are corrupted. (A virus/worm could also messed up things).
If you can not get your drive into another PC to back up your data to either a CD/DVD drive than you have no choice but to re-install windows.
Re-installing windows will over write the old windows & replace other folders. Some personal data will be erased. If this is what you want than continue! If you want to save all personal data than you will need to buy another drive. Install the new drive & setup windows complete. When your all done. connect the Maxtor drive. Check the white sticker in the Maxtor drive & change the jumper so the Maxtor is set to a slave drive.
Now you can copy all your personal data to your new drive.
Thats it. Continue to use the Maxtor drive a back up.
Once done copying your data to the new primary drive you can use windows to format the Maxtor & continue using it as a back-up drive.
Here is a very good drive for the money & it comes with a five year warranty.

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Windows Xp Setup Problem : "setup cannot access the disk". I have HDD: Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD.


try doing a F disk on the hard drive first then format it and make it the active drive and then try installing the xp software. if it has had another operating system say for instance windows ME it will not install on that drive without removing it. You can also go to www.maxtor.com and download their free hard drive tools to see if there is a problem that thier software can fix. the software is for free.

Hard drive spins up but windows does not see it


Depending on your PC make model and BIOS it may not auto recognize the second drive, check those settings. and or it might not support the drive size, in which case look for a BIOS update for your system. You also might want to use "cable select" on the switches even though you set it to slave it may not like that.

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


Mark,
You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.
