WINDOWS COULD NOT START BECAUSE OF A COMPUTER DISK HARDWARE CONFIGURATION PROBLEM. COULD NOT READ FROM THE SELECTED BOOT DISK. CHECK BOOT PATH AND DISK HARDWARE.
I assumed that the boot section of the C drive was corrupted, so I replaced it with an Acronis clone. Same problem.
I attempted a Windows Repair and saw a red bar signalling progress, but it didn't fix the problem
I then attempted to reinstall Windows. Right after the XP code entry screen I received the same error msg.
I'm thinking that this is a hardware problem and will remove memory sticks as my next attempt.
Does anyone have any suggestions or diagnosis?
The system has an AMD CPU 2500MHz, Windows XP sp3, 2 hdd (1 system, 1 data) in IDE, 2 GeForce 8600GT video cards
Thanks for your reply.
