  1. Hy I installed on my computer Windows when a regular IDE Hard disc is Master and the SATA2 is slave. I installed the opereating system on the SATA2 disc and when I desconnected The IDE hard disc the system had stop working! (I am not really remember but it was somthing like "NTDL is missing")
    How could I make the computer find this opereating system without reinstall it!?

    Yes it can be repaired, but lets look at why the fault occured, when you installed the OS the boot record was written to the master IDE Hard drive, now that you have removed it, the boot record is missing.

    To fix it follow this simple guide here .

    Post back and let us know how it went.
