This second system had a problem with its services.exe causing errors (Not virus related) I decided to have titu and decided to take the HDD from the HP system, install it on the ACER system as a second slave drive, format the disk and use it to extend my HDD capacity. This went without a hitch and I was happy as. I formatted the HP hard disk which is divided into two partitions and everything went well.
After restarting it a couple of times everything went well until I put it into Standby. (On the ACER system standby was installed on the HP system it was not) After trying to restart from standby the computer stopped responding with a blank screen. Even after powering it off it still wouldn't reboot until I disconnected the power from the second HDD. IT then fired up like normal and I was able to reconnect the second HDD drive and use it.
Has anyone got any thoughts of how I can get the system to work so that the Standby option works well with both disks connected and doesn't bung up when coming out of standby mood?
PS I tried to change the HP HDD to FAT32 file system to see if this would work. I was able to do this on one of the partitions but not the second one.
