Hi guys.
I will explain shortly my PC. I have two hard drives. One primary 230 GB and the other slave one 20 GB. Today when I woke up I just had the weirdest thing happen in the world. I put on the PC and it wouldnt boot! It worked perfectly well last night and no one else touched it. I can access this drive when I boot from the slave disk but I cannot boot from it. I need some files that I have in My Documents folder in the primary disk but I cannot access them as it says access denied.
How do I boot from the primary disk?
Someone please help me!

Hi back guys,
Sorry if I am being impatient tonight I don't wanna make a mess around the forum, it's just that I can't calm down. Is the floppy disk a MUST.. or is there another way to solve this frustrating booting problem.
Thanks.

yur really hurting yourself by not getting a floppy drive / they are dirt cheap easy to install and invaluable for running emergency disks, bios disks, diagnostic disks

for a long time everyone talked of the death of the floppy drive / but they will have to pry mine out of my fingers to get it away / i may not use it for 6 months at a time / but its like my favorite pillow !!


goodluck


joe
