i have two hard drive's one with xp pro and the other with xp64. there not much installed on either i reinstalled xp pro on friday and only put xp 64 in last week is the first main programme i've put in.other things are just driver's for the printer and sound card.

just a thought but have you tried disconnecting one of the drives to see if that works ie keep the one you use the most

  mantis1 10:15 02 Jul 2006

what do you mean disconnect. unplug the drive from inside the pc or is there another way of doing this

  andrew-196854 10:16 02 Jul 2006

yes inside you pc

when i unplug one of my drives i get the message boot disc failure. so i plugged that back in and tried the other and say's windows canot start. do you think i should format again start from the begining again
