Boot up options

  nelie 10:54 19 Jan 2007

ive just installed a second hard drive as a slave but when i boot up i get the message "Error loading OS"

if i go into boot up options i can choose the c drive in the list and load XP normally.

where can i change the boot up options to go to the c drive first??

in the boot up options table the 2nd HD is listed as second slave and the c drive as 3rd master.

XP Home SP 2. compaq presario

Move the "C" drive above the slave drive in bootup options.

Just highlight the drive and press enter, this should give you the option to move the drive.

Don't forget to exit and save your settings ( usually F10 )

This will give the "C" drive priority to boot.
