Okay, here goes!
I just added a second HD to my comp and it was working fine. So, now I have one 80gb connected via SATA and one 30gb connected via IDE, both set as masters (because they are on 2 different channels)
Now! this was working perfectly fine, untill I shutdown my computer. Now when I start it up, I get one of two messages
1. Verifying DMI Pool Data.......
NTLDR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
2. Something about unable to find bootdisk, not sure bout that one.
Okay, I get message 1 when I have both HDs connected
I get message 2 SOMETIMES when only the SATA drive is connected
and if I get message 2, then I nudged one wire coming from my PSU and it loaded fine, still with only the SATA HD connected though. As if there was a loose connection or something.
My OS is installed on my SATA drive, so I think my PSU may have a loose connection somewhere, and that is why it sometimes cannot find Bootdisk, which is the HD I would boot to, but when wire is nudged or moved, it can find it and all is well, except my other HD cannot be connected at all for it to load
I am completely at a loss about message 1 though!
can anyone PLEASE help me out?? This is URGENT!
