I started having this problem after reinstalling XP several days ago. I would get this message before booting into Windows: Windows could not start becauwse of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from selected boot disc. Check boot path and disk hardware. Refer to windows and hardware manuals or something like that. I have to hit the reset button to try again and after that it boots fine. This only happened 2 times, but i am concerned, i ran checks on the main hard disk using chkdsk and WD Data lifeguard tool but found no errors. Does anyone have any idea what is going on here?
