Okay, I am using NSW2003 professional and it has been fully updated from the web. My scsi hard drive is making clicking noises and it is about to die. I used NSW 2003 to clone a disk to another disk and I interchanged them and they worked fine. They were both IDE.

Now I have my scsi which is on the brink and I just bought an IDE drive. I cloned the scsi to the ide and it won't boot. It tells me to insert a system disk.

These are the steps I performed.
1) cloned the scsi to the ide
2) integrity check on the ide
3) shut down
4) removed the scsi
5) moved the jumper on the M/B to disable sata
6) booted up and changed the BIOS from scsi to hdd-0
7) I get the 'insert a system disk' error

What am i overlooking? Please help.

Being a Win98 guy, I don't know the specifics of how to do it in XP, but have you made sure the primary partition where you created the clone on HDD-0 is active. Win98, I'd just open fdisk and see.

ah that is what I forgot. Thank you. I made it active under disk management and it worked.
