I had a virus on my PC, and decided to reinstall XP. My CD drive stopped working and long story short I took it off its connectors and threw it in the trash, so now my PC doesn't have a CD drive or any other drive. Now, I decided to take out the hard drive (Baracuda 7200.7, 80GB, Model Number ST380011A, Firmware 3.16, Date Code 04185, COnfig DZT-06, HDA P/N 100275523, P/N 9W2003-032), put it in my other PC, reinstall the XP, and put it back in to the first PC. Which I did. Except now, it won't boot up, and gives me the "Press F1 to retry boot, press F2 to go to configuration..." message.
I disabled OS Install mode in BIOS. Don't know what else to try. I tried again to put the drive into my working PC, and it loads just fine with the new XP. Put it back in to the old, and it doesn't work.
Can anyone help?
