I tried replacing my slave hd with a bigger one and accidentally plugged the blank into my master plug with my master drive out. I know I know... I thought I could just plug back up to my main drive and restart and move on. I was wrong. Now when the PC is powered on, it detects hardware, boots CDROM, then Primary HD. Only problem is when it opens the HD, the cursor that normally only blinks a few times before windows starts, blinks forever and ever and never boots windows. Thinking this was a drive issue, I replaced the drive with another HD with WINXP and got the same results. I then performed a disk scan and windows had no damaged files. Here are some specs on my PC in case it might help: REAL COMPUTER NAME - MININT-Q18704CN 169.254.150.190 COMPUTER NAME - HOME KERNEL - MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP, UNIPROCESSOR FREE PRODUCT TYPE - PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT VERSION - 5.1 SERVICE PACK - 3 KERNEL BUILD - 2600 REGISTERED ORGANIZATION - BLOOD, SWEAT & TATTOOS REGISTERED OWNER - WAYNE ROOKS SYSTEM ROOT - C:\WINDOWS PROCESSORS - 1 TYPE - x86 FAMILY 15 MODEL STEPPING 4 GENUINE INTEL PHYSICAL MEMORY - 510MB NOTE: I have tried to swap drives, repair with recovery console, and many other methods of finding whatever this little problem may be that is keeping me from getting into windows. If anyone has any advice or knows what it may be, PLEASE reply to this. THANKS!
