So I formatted the work computer and installed my little sister's HDD into the computer in addition to the other internal drive. I figured I wouldn't have to buy another copy of Windows this way and just boot off of her HDD. But now here is the problem:
With the computers original hard drive plugged in, everything boots up completely fine. But when I put her Hard Drive in, the computer just hangs and brings up the black screen with the blinking cursor in the top left of the screen.
I set the jumpers to "Master" for the 10 GB Hard drive and "Slave" for the original 40 GB hard drive. I set the IDE cables right, Master at the end and Slave in the middle, and when I look in the BIOS both drives are detected and the 10 GB Hard Drive with a good copy of Windows and all her info is the Primary 0 Drive and the 40 GB is the Primary 1 Drive but it won't boot. But if I take out her drive, or set it as the slave drive, everything boots up fine and Windows regonizes it in "My Computer"
So what I am asking is if anyone can help me figure out a way that I can boot up the computer from her drive because I'm pretty sure I've done everything right so far but it just doesn't want to work. I can provide more detailed information if neccessary.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
