Hi, I have 2 hard drives, one has been sitting for like a year. I have been trying to get 1 file off it ... but it keeps saying "error loading operating system" ... well last night I hooked it up again ... looked at the partition ... everything seemed ok ... .. hooked up both of them figuring maybe I could ghost one or something ... and it said "error loading operating system" ... figured I must have set the jumpers wrong or something, sure enough I had them both set to master =-P so I set the "bad" hard drive to slave ... plugged it back in and I got "error loading operating system" ... so I unplugged it all together ... and still got "error loading operating system" ... did I f'something up by hooking them both up as primary master ? didn't seem logical to me ... so now I am confused and I really don't want to reformat I JUST reformatted ... please help!
