I just recently purchased a new hard drive and tried to install it. In doing so, I unplugged the cables from the old hard drive and the floppy drive in order to screw the new hard drive in; I have an Antec 1080 case. I swapped the cables from the old hard drive to the new one, and put the floppy cables back in. However, when I booted up I got an error message, Floppy disk(s) fail (40) and I can't boot up into windows. I then tried to boot up from the old hard drive, and I get the same error message. I've checked the floppy cables countless times and they're in okay. The kicker is, when I put a boot disk into the floppy drive, windows starts up fine. Does anyone know a possible solution or know what the problem is? My new hard drive is just sitting idle in my drive bay *sigh* BTW, I have the latest bios, and I'm running WinXP Pro. Thanks.
