XP Pro. An old, but solid system. Further info if requested.
When I fire up I get the message there is no boot disk and I have to shut down, unplug D: and E: then reboot.
Ok, I shut down, plug in D: and reboot. Everythings cool. I do the same with E: and everythings cool. One at a time.
I've run anti-malware scans until I'm tired of it and I'm clean.
When I reboot I get told my computer cannot find a boot disk with D: and E: plugged in but neither of them have anything on them. I wiped them with HDShredder on another system before I installed them; went to Computer Magagement and formatted both and that worked.
A perplexing problem. I leave the side of my box off so I can unplug and replug the power cables for D: and E: so I can boot. I've reinstalled XP Pro twice to see if that helped. No.
I hope I've described this good enough.
