Somebody at work gave me an Athlon XP 2000+ computer which is faster than my old p4 and it only has 256 mb RAM but it has 3 more slots; mine uses RAMBUS memory which is too expensive, so I was going to put my hard drive in this computer, which has no hard drive in it and when I tried I got a NON-SYSTEM disk error. It's a 40 gb IDE drive and it boots up fine in my Compaq so I don't know what the problem is. When the BIOS comes up it recognizes the drive, which has Windows XP installed.

you need to change the boot order so it checks the HDD before the floppy, cdrom etc...
btw a new pc means you will have to reinstall windows
