Hi! Thanks in advance for any help!
I recently installed xp pro sp2 on a new wd hard drive. Yesterday, it shut down for no reason....restarted several times and came back up. The last time, I got a boot failure message. When I use my cd and start the recovery console, my secondary hard drive is C:. I cannot find my primary hard drive using the recovery console.
I checked bios and it's fine, the drive is running....but the windows cd doesnt think it's there.
I disabled my secondary drive and removed it and tried to boot from cd, but that didn't help.
My next step is to switch hard drives on my pc and put the new drive in the secondary spot in case my motherboard is going out. But I thought I'd post here first.
