Hi all - We got a new (used) motherboard (an Epox EP-3VSA) and since it's slightly faster than the old one, we put it in the box and mounted all the stuff from the old computer onto it - two WD hard drives, a CD burner, and a DVD player - nothing fancy. Turned it on and the BIOS says that all the drives are there. Then when it goes to boot up, it says "disk read error - press ctl-alt-del to restart". I checked to make sure that it's booting to the right hard drive, and it is. So I put in the Windows XP disk, ran the Recovery Console, and was able to log onto the hard drive with the Windows installation from there with no problem - I can see and "dir" all the drives. I ran chkdsk /p, and it found some errors and presumably fixed them and tried to boot again. Same error. Ran chkdsk again, this time with /r and then tried to reboot - still getting a disk read error. I don't know what else to check. Obviously it's able to read the hard drive when I boot from the XP disk, so why am I getting this error, and why won't it boot up, for pete's sake? I thought about running fixmbr or fixboot, but they won't make any difference if it's not reading the disk in the first place, right? Any advice or suggestions would be most appreciated!
