"XP REPAIR INSTALL" on google.com That should fix it.
I recently built a computer for my parents out of spare parts from my recent upgrade. It has been working fine until recently. It becomes confused and will crash, sometimes not boot at all. I belive the problem is that the old hard drive was never formatted when the new one was put in. The current operating system is on the new hard drive. however an old XP is on the old hard drive. I attempted to take out the old hard drive but the boot information appears to be on it. When I boot the computer it tells me to insert a correct system disk (or something close to that) in other words it will not boot XP without both hard drives plugged in. Is there a way I can take the boot information and place it on the new hard drive allowing my to take out the old one?
