Error Code: 0142
Hard drive 1 self test unsuccessful.
After looking around dell site a few others seemed I needed a new hard drive, so went and replaced a SATA 500MB with a SATA 1TB drive. Put it in using the Dell Windows XP disk, booted to that, made one big partition, formated (slow not quick) and installed XP. But when it reboots I still get the Error Loading OS.
I think that when it formatted it did not make it a bootable drive and I don't know how to do that.
Dell XPS 630. I really don't want to mess with the old drive as I'm waiting for an enclosure case to arrive and I'm hoping to get the data off of it.
There is another SATA 1TB data second drive in the computer also.
