I have a HP that the hard drive quit. I have a E-machine that the
hdd is good. It is formated in ntfs with XP. When I put it in the HP
I get a disk read error. I put it in another E-machine and it will
boot up fine. I can read it fine if I set it as slave and use a small
hdd as master in the HP. Does e-machine have a way of blocking
it from from being used in another machine. Bios recognises it. Any
suggestions on how to change it so I can use it in my HP.
