I just took out my hardrive with XP to see if a new one one would post ok.

After putting the drive back with XP on I cannot load up into windows. It says there has been a recent hardware change. The drive is recogonized in the bios and the hardrive light does come on while its posting.

Ive tried loading in safe mode but cant get anywhere?

Anyideas why i cant load backinto xp or shall i need to reinstall.

cheers.

not quite

I should have phrased it better: I took my present drive (with XP) and put a new raptor drive in to see if it would post into bios. Then took the new raptor drive out and put the old one backin . I didnt feel like installing XP on the new raptor drive just yet...justw anted to see if it would post ok. Anyway after putting the drive with XP back in it wouldnt boot!!! It works now though. I reset cpu to stock and made some adjustments in the bios and it booted into safe mode and will now boot XP proper. Dont know why the system would need to be put back to stock from the overclock. Anyway thanks for the link..may come in handy!!
