    I was working on a server computer that had a 20gb SCSI drive. The motherboard had IDE capabilities and the customer wanted a larger HD because they were running out of room. So we ordered a new WD 320 gb IDE drive and cloned (using Acronis True Image) the SCSI drive to the IDE drive successfully. I disconnected the SCSI drive and hooked up the IDE drive to master and when it gets to the Windows Server 2000 splash screen, I get a BSOD that says "the hard disk is inaccessible". I switched up some jumper settings and the way the cables were connected but still got the same problem. The motherboard has a Pentium 3 CPU and there is 1 gb RAM.
