I did a clean install of Win XP on my hdd, on drive C (the whole drive is one partition), and I partitioned, but did not format a second drive, partitions D through H. Windows boots just fine. I threw these drives into a completely new machine, and during boot, a message similar to "could not detect drive 0, could not detect drive 1" message flashes by, and it boots off the CD. If I take the CD out, it simply cannot boot. The OS drive is on the primary IDE channel, as master on the cable and jumpered as master. The other drive is on that same cable as slave and jumpered as slave. It is an 80 conductor cable. The same problem occurs if I put only the OS drive on the cable. What could be the problem here? Does new hardware overload cause these kinds of problems? I don't think that's it, since it doesn't seem to be booting at all, and that is the time that it would detect new hardware, right?

This problem has been ironed out, but I'll be posting a new problem soon, when I get the details of it.
