I decided to have a second hard drive/disk to my PC.
In the process my purposely formated my original hard disk which was running WIN98 for sometime.

My new hard disk is installed with WINDOWS 2000 professional.

I have configured my new hard disk has the primary and the old hard disk has secondary.

my problem is after the POST i am seeing this BLUE SCREEN with a STOP ERROR message and asking me to restart the PC if this is the first time i have seen this message.

I have done that & same results.

Please someone help.

If you install the operating system first you have to set in the hard disk your machine,cause every pc not twin,another vga,another chipset,etc...got it? :D
If you use a computer and want to install a new op system set the hard disk in and install the system.

Yeah, as said in the above post, you cannot install it somewhere else and use in your pc, it'll cause configuration mismatch problems leading to a BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death as you are referring to)...Backup any important data and install a fresh copy of windows ELSE uninstall all drivers you manually installed in this OS on that(the other) pc and freshly reinstall all drivers (e.g. Display, sound,etc..)

Hopefully doing the driver stuff should sort things, if it doesn't then you'll have to format and reinstall..

A blue screen generally occurs if there is a RAM problem but
it could be something else.

Do you get this blue screen immediately after you boot your computer?

When you boot your computer ,do you get any error beep?

Are you able to boot your computer in safe mode?

Windows was installed on a different computer. We are better off waiting a reply before suggesting ram issues.

Please note that if you installed windows on this Hard Drive
when it was on another computer,then you won't be able to
boot your new computer with this hard drive.

Do you have the other computer with you?
If you have please insert this hard disk back to that same
computer in which you installed this windows 2000 and boot it.

Write back after you do all these things.

Have you tried to reinstall the operating system yet?

Seems to me that windows can't load because it isn't configured for your system.

There are times when wrong hardware(vga,ram or another unit) creates blue screen error... :'( On my home that's Hungary called 'Blue Death' :yawn:
Try the above posts put back the hard disk to its machine.....
Remove the rams,and put them back one by one.
If the rams are ok then look the video card if it is installed properly,if you had an old vga and get a new then firstly the old one you have to uninstall its drivers....
Some days ago I worked on a pc that was the same problem,one of the three rams went off....
