I have a puzzling problem here. I'm working on a freinds computer and we are setting up a brand new system. It has XP installed with SP3. We moved the hard drive (IDE) from his old computer into the new computer as the slave drive to copy over his data. When I installed the old hard drive is was detected in the bois, but when windows started the drive was not listed. I went into computer management/disk management and the initiaze and convert wizard comes up for that drive. Not wanting to lose his information I cancelled the wizard and decided to put the old hard drive back into his old computer. Now when I boot the old computer up it tells me that the hard drive is not bootable? So now I can't seem to get at the data on the hard drive at all. I'm hoping it's still there and that maybe the boot record or something is missing somehow.
Thanks in advance.
