Hello,

Just installed old HD from computer whose MB bit the dust. This 2nd HD's OS is Win XP. The computer that I installed this 2nd HD on was originally OS Win 98se. I upgraded OS to Win XP before installing 2nd HD. I can access all of the data on 2nd HD, but I would like to boot to 2nd HD (faster, bigger) but when I switch connector cable (master / slave) the computer won't boot. I just get the message "no operating system installed"

Any suggestions?
Thanks
Izis
