Boot Errors

Recommended Posts

After significant help from RGone, I have gotten my new MoBo and A64 processor up and running. Once the initial boot starts and I get the Windows 2k splash screen, I get the nice blue screen of death saying that I have a boot disk error! I have checked the jumpers and my hard drives are appropriately set for master (the one with my O/S on it) and slave for my other hard drive. I have tried resetting the CMOS a few times and have tried various IDE ribbon placements with the HDs but to no success. My HDs and O/S were working fine last week on my old MoBo but they aren't working now. My O/S HD is an IBM 18Gb 7200 RPM and my other HD is a Western Digital 60Gb 5400 RPM. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can resolve this issue without dropping a new operating system on one of my hard drives? Also, if I do drop a new operating system on one of my hard drives, will I lose the data that was on it?

 

All input greatly appreciated!
