My windows 98 was working fine.
Then I installed a new samsung hd 80g as the slave.
But now windows gives me a fatal error when starting up.
I am still using the old drive as the startup, the new drive is the slave.
I didn't change any software.
To make the new drive work I made a single partition with fdisk in fat 32,
The drive is regognized, works and saves data.
But the thing is, My pc will not startup in normal mode anymore from the old drive which is the startup. And before I installed the new slave, it was working fine.
It only starts up in safe mode now.
Heres how it crashes:
It posts, checks, then eventually gets to the part when the computer displays the windows asking for your login information.
Immeadiately after passing that stage, it dumps with a fatal error everytime. Can't get past there.
But heres the thing, I did not change any software at at all.
It was working well, then I installed a new hard drive as the slave. Now windows normal mode wont start up.
Could this be an issue about cable select? I am not currently using it because the drive is already recognized and works as it is.
So in summary, the new drive was installed as the slave.
The old drive which is still the startup drive now will not startup.
It fatal errors everytime I get right past the login screen.
I appreciate any advice about this.
P.S. the strange thing is, when i disconnect the new drive, the system will boot fine in normal mode. If i connect it again, then it give me the same fatal error every time right after the login screen. And, in safe mode, boths drive will work.
Right now I have it set for cable select.
Don't really know a lot, but need assistance.
