Windows NT, 2000, XP and 2003 do not take to moving to other hardware.
Fix? Install the OS again.
Warning! If you intend on using that hard disk, do not move it to another machine as a drive geometry issue could cause its contents to vanish.
I've searched the forums and found problems similar to mine but no solutions for my particular problem.
I am attempting to build a computer with a Pcchips M811LU motherboard and a Duron 1.8 G processor. I realize now that this motherboard doesn't have a good track record but at the time I purchased it it looked like an affordable way for a long overdue upgrade.
I am attempting to boot from a Samsung Trigem SV10220/TGE hard drive with Windows 2000 Pro already installed. This drive boots and works fine on the computer I'm presently using. When I try to boot it on the new system it looks like it is going to boot normally. I get a black screen saying Windows 2000 is starting and the progress bar fills up. Then it goes to the Windows 2000 splash screen with a progress bar that fills about 1/3 of the way before going to a blue screen with an error message......stop 0x0000007B (0xED41B84C,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) inacessable_boot_device.
I'm not a technician. This is my first attempt at building a computer. There is a great deal I don't understand about them. Why will this hard drive not boot when it is being detected and read from by the motherboard?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
