Hey guys have a major problem.
I transfered all my files to my desktop pc because i wanted to re install windows on my laptop (i only use the pc as storage) and i will admitt i did fill the hard drive up thinking that it would only slow.
I left the files transfering while i slept, through LAN but when i woke it wasnt jus slow it froze so i restarted and i get the error windows had to shut to protect your comp etc.
I know i left about 1.6GB left on the drive but is was supposed to be only for a few hours until i re transfered my stuff.
I cant run CHKDSK/F because the damn drive wont read my disk and i tried booting in safe mode also last good config.

Can i install xp on my slave and still access my main drive although it is passworded?
Any help would be greatly appreciated:sigh:

Thanks

Re: Need help xp restarting at splash screen

Hello and Welcome to TSF,

Yes you can install xp on the other harddrive as master drive
the old one will have to be set to slave drive

Note: make sure your antivirus definitions are up to date before connecting
slave drive up to pc.

You can use this program also to scan it with:

Anti-Malwarebytes - http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php (free version)

When you open up slave drive, it should popup a box to enter the password.
