I have a specific problem when starting Windows XP.
My setup is, a workstation with 3 operating systems on an SSD:
- Windows 7
- Windows XP
AHCI is set in BIOS.
Since I'm preparing an upgrade to NVME, I made a complete image from the SSD to NVME (all available partitions).
On further preparations in Windows XP, I break the startup (doesn't want to boot), then:
1.I return an image from NVME - only the partition with Windows XP to SSD (with Acronis program).
2.After restart it gives me a "ntldr" problem and a suggestion to use the Repair function in Windows XP CD.
3.I used Windows XP Repair and successively run:
chkdsk /r /f
fixboot (on C:)
bootfix - does not find my Windows XP operating system installed!
It starts loading something - on a black screen, slowly, then it shows me:
"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. Check boot path and disk hardware..."
5.Just for a test, I changed in BIOS from AHCI to IDE, run XP and for a moment it shows me the boot image of Windows XP, then the computer reboot.
When the BIOS setting is AHCI - which is used in principle, there are no image of Windows XP at boot time.
6.If I run safe mode (with IDE emulation in BIOS), the boot process stops at: "aswbidshx.sys"
Need to restore a working Windows XP operating system to the old SSD, to finish the preparation to upgrade.
I would be grateful to anyone who can guide me how I can solve this problem.
Thank you for your time.
