I have a Compaq En (old i know) Computer
intel pentium 3
compaq processor board
i have added a graphics card and 2 hard drives one old and one new the old one is set to slave and the new one is set to master.
the problem is that i was able to get the xp installation to run and decided to install it on the slave drive
once it completes everything format to NTFS the computer restarts until when it says press any key to boot from cd i wait until it should boot to hard drive but a message comes
'missing operating system'.
just something i want to know e.g if you install xp it says formatting until in the end comes with an error:
"Setup was unable to format the partition. The disk may be damaged. Make sure the drive is switched on and properly connected to your computer. If the disk is a SCSI disk, make sure your SCSI devices are properly terminated. Consult your computer or SCSI adapter documentation for more information.
You will have to select a different partition for Windows NT. Press ENTER to
did it format the drive if not then the file on it should be intact correct if not is there any way to recover the data.
