My hard drive can be auto detected in CMOS setup, but it will not boot from the hard drive:Error says "Boot disk failure". I used my start-up disk and used FDISK to either format or create a partition or logical drive Error says"Cannot access drive 1". All this happen when I moved the hard to a different mother board I bought. I am at the point of buying a new hard drive if this problem cannot be solved :confused:

Can you stick the HDD in a different PC and run FDISK from there? Some really strange things happen when trying to run a HDD from one MB to another. There is probably nothing wrong with the HDD. It and the new MB are just not getting along because of the other MB drivers left on it. Good luck.
