I just bought this hard drive that had Windows 2000. It was preused and taken straight out of a computer. However, I get an error when I try to boot with it:

0X0000007B (OXEB81B84C,0XC0000034,0X00000000,0X00000000)
INACCEPTABLE_BOOT_DEVICE

Here is what throws me off: I can view all of the files on it and everything in Windows XP via explorer....

you mean by making it a slave to your xp drive? if that's the case then you'll need to change the jumper settings on it whenyou try to boot from it

if the jumper on the back of the HDD that you want to boot from is not set to the MASTER setting your computer will not detect it as a bootable device...is the jumper set to the MASTER setting or not? if it is then open your bios upon start-up and see if the HDD is listed there

K, if the harddrive is taken from another cp, which it was used to boot from, taken to your cp, which has totally different hardware and config settiings, the harddrive will not boot. Your cp's boot files are listing the original harddrive that was in your cp such as Disk 0 sector 1.

You can see the files in Explorer because the files are still there, to have the "newer" drive boot, you should format and reinstall and os with your cp.
