Hi, I just built myself a new computer and when I turn it on it comes up with the usual boot messages then as it goes to load windows it stops and resets itself! I had the hard drive in my old computer and it was working fine, I just simply took it out of my old computer with the op sys and all my files still on it and put it the new one. I am using the video card as I had in the old one too. My spec is -

maxtor 40 gb hard drive
msi kt3v mainboard
msi mx440 se agp grafix card
256mb ddr pc2700 333mhz memory

I can get into bios ok but when I boot from a CD it keep coming up with errors. Please help me!!!

Neil.

Hi,

Make sure the BIOS setup has the same hard drive parameters as when the drive was in the old system. If the old system had parameters set (CYL/HD/SECT) and the new system is set to AUTO, it may be detecting similar but slightly different paramaters. They need to be set exactly the same as in the old system or data corruption will occur.

What error are you getting booting off CD?

Hi,

Take a look at the motherboard manual or in the BIOS setup itself, usually under the Standard Features. You can either set the drive to be AUTO, which will auto detect the drive's parameters on bootup or set them manually. If the hard drive was set to manual in the old system, write down the parameters and configure the drive using the same parameters in the new system.
