    Here is my story to the point. I have a Samsung SP1604n Hard Drive. Windows xp and/or linux will not load up on this hard drive. Keeps coming up "Error Loading Operating System". Hard Drive had no errors to it when it was scanned. I reset the MBR, did a level 3 format, changed out cables and settings, still nothing. Tried a fixmbr from xp recovery, which it said was a success but did not work. I did an fdisk /mbr and still nothing. I bought a new hard drive and bam everything loading up fine. What did I miss on this hard drive. Any ideas would be great. Thanks
