I decided to add an old Hard Drive (mac formatted) as a second hard drive to my XP machine and ran into some not serious...and then serious problems.
I installed the hard drive and I couldn't see it in Explorer etc but it was listed as installed and working fine in Device Manager. I figured that it wasn't showing up because it was mac formatted but since it wouldn't mount, I didn't know how to re-format it!
So...I TRYED to get into Bios...The boot up screen told me to hold Cnrtl + S. So I did and it didn't work. So then I tried Delete...and it didn't work. So then I tried F2...and that didn't work. So then I tried Enter...and that REEEEAAALLLYY didn't work. Infact, it was from that point forward that everytime I turn on my machine it boots to a black screen with a white cursor at the top left....and that's it.
Does anyone know how to get my computer out of the black screen and into BIOS or Windows or ANYthing? IF I am lucky enough to have my computer back up, does anyone know how to make it see my second hard drive?
Thank you VERY much in advance!
