Istalling windows Hi. I need help from somebody. My problem is that i have a new sata II 250gb hard disk in my computer. There is also a windows xp installed on my old 80gb hard disk.I wanted to install wiindows on the new one, so i plugged off the old one. But after restarting it was written: Disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter. So I installed windows xp onto new hard disk without plugging off the old one. Now when the system is loading, i can choose from 2 windows. But what can i do if i want to have only one, that one on the new. I again tried to plug off the old one after installation, but still written out? disk failure... Thanks for your help. Nice day for everybody!

Because you have a dual boot system, you have two 'C' drives, which in fact is a good idea if you get a system failure on the drive you are using, you can select the other and still view any files on the other drive through my computer.

f using XP, right click my computer, then properties, then click advanced tab, then startup and recovery listing click settings, at the top system startup, select the default operating system, then click EDIT button, then delete the value that points to the other hard drive more than likely listed as disc1, disk 0 will be the one you have connected as master boot hard drive

2.5'' external fell down


Sorry, but if your hard disk fell down and now isn't regognized by the computer the most possible situation is that the disk is destroyed.

It sounds like your hard drive is messed up. Don't worry you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

160gb samsung sata II


The PC is not seeing the Hard drive. check the jumper pin for the setting on the hard drive. If you have one HD then it should be set to master or cable select. Reboot and the cmos will see the HD. If not check the cables, and last check to see if the controller driver is installed for the motherboard. The controller is where the cable connects.

Most likely if it makes sound then it is getting ready to crash, don't take a chance and remove your files and replace.

Hey, congratulations on successfully installing the harddive.

Since its brand new, there is no volume in the disk (no partition and not formated)

To create a new volume and format the disk for the first time

on desktop, right click my computer icon, select manage from the menu, on the left side of the management window click on disk management

now on the right side, find your new harddrive, right click on it (its most likely the drive 1)

so right click on the 250gb hdd, create new volume, use NTFS default settings, and you may use quick format. normal format will take from 15 minutes to a hour or more.

with quick format the disk will be useable within seconds.

after this is complete you will see a new disk in my computer.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help
Also, remember to rate the solutions :-)
