I am having two HDDs in my pc. One is IDE (80GB) and the second one is SATA(160GB). The system boots with the IDE and is having windows xp. As the SATA drive developed bad clusters and it is in warranty I want to replace it.
But when I remove SATA drive from the system and try to reboot it gives the screen with options safemode, start normally, without networking, last known good configuraton etc. I tried all the options but its start rebooting and displaying the above said screen (it is not booting it continuously starts rebboting). When I add the SATA drive back to the system with out any problem XP boots.
I dont know how to remove the SATA drive and go for warranty replacement because of the above said problem.
Please help me to get rid of this problem so that I can go for a replacement of the SATA.
