Hi guys an girls weird problem. I bought some SATA HDD's connected em up and was left with a spare IDE cable because my SATA ODD's made the IDE cable redundant. So I thought hey I have a spare 250Gig IDE HD sitting around doing nothing I will plug that in. as soon as I did I got an error on boot which said windows in missing the file "ntoskrnl.exe" please re-install the file and reboot system. Weird because the HDD is totally fresh and I formatted it yesterday. as soon as I unplug the drive the comp whizzes into life no problem. I think that it is a problem with the fact that the IDE cable is the master boot line for the PC. How do I correct this in the BIOS? Specs for my system are in my sig Thanks guys you have been aweesome in the past.
