We have a server which is much slower than we would like (800MHz) and want to move the 2000 HDs to another machine with 3 GHz. When I moved the HDs to the new computer, I got the unmountable_boot_disk error. BIOs did not show either of the hard drives. I also disconnected each drive separately, changing slave to master as needed, and the error continued and did not show up in BIOs. I then put back the orginal HD alone and it worked. Added one of the drives as a slave, got the error. Used other drive as a slave, same error.
Put the 2-2000 HDs back in original tower and it worked. The other computer with XP hard drive also worked when put back as it was. We really need to move the HDs to a faster computer and we can't afford to lose the data on them. One of the HDs (a newer one) is a Seagate, the other is WD. What can I do next?
