I recently plugged in an old hard drive to my computer. Usually on boot up the computer will have a black screen with writing:
Loading Operating system...
Boot from CD/DVD...
and then it would start immediately after.
After plugging in an old hard drive to use it as a storage device, it would stop at that point. To start my computer I would have to press F12 then select the hard disk to boot windows from
I got sick of this and just took the hard drive out now so it has just the original hard drive in the box (and a portable hard drive)
But again, it will freeze after saying "Boot from CD/DVD" and to start it I have to press F12 and manually select the disk to start from.
Can somebody help me here? What have I done wrong? I have plugged in my hard drive countless times without this problem.
Is there a way I can have my alternate hard drive peramently plugged in without getting this error?
Thanks a lot.
The other hard drive has no windows installed on it, it is just a blank hard drive.
