My old Maxtor Master failed. I installed a new Hitachi master set it to cable select and set the old slave to cable select and windows xp wont start even in safe mode. Changing settings on both drives to master and slave but it still doesnt work. Both drives are recognised when I enter setup by pressing F1 at start. Computer is HP Pavilion Penth 4 2.25Ghz. Curiously no problem with the two original maxtor drives. Any help would be appreciated and Thank you.

Why didn't you set the new drive as master?

Master at end of cable slave in middle and retry.

If XP is on the slave it won't boot. XP must be on the master.
