moving hard drive

Posted: 08-13-2003, 09:33 PM
I am trying to move an 80gb WD hard rive from a Win98
system to a new XP system. I have a new 160gb Maxtor for
the master drive, and want have the WD drive be the slave
so I can access all of the data. I installed it and set
the jumpers and started the computer up. Windows saw the
drive, it was F: in My Computer, but when I clicked on
it, it said this drive is not formatted, would you like
to format now.

I was running EZ BIOS on the drive before to access the
full 80 GB, so I uninstalled it, hoping to get WinXP to
recognize the drive. Now everything behaves the same
except that when I go into the admin tools>computer
management it now says this disk is not initialized and
asks if I want to initialize the disk.

I belive that the drive was FAT32 formatted in Win 98

What do I need to do to get this drive running in the new
system without losing any of my data?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

I am doing something similar, in installing a new larger disk. The 98 uses
fats, while XP is an NTFS system and they are not compatible (as far as I
know but I am no expert).



Have you thought of networking the systems. This woould give you a back up
facility, and is quite simple.

Did you uninstall EZ BIOS using the original 98 system or the XP system?
This program "tricks" the 98 system into thinking that it has a smaller
drive than is actually installed. When it is removed from the drive the
data is sometime lost.

Win 98 does use FAT 32 and another poster said he didn't think FAT 32 and
NTFS in XP were compatible. That is incorrect. XP doesn't care if the
drive is formatted as FAT 32 or NTFS. It handles each in its own way. You
can mix them on one system.

Go back into Computer management and go to Disk management. Click on Action
then Rescan disks. If this doesn't help the problem you probably will have
to initialize the drive and will probably lose the data.

Move Hard Driv

If you upgrade your motherboard on your Windows 2000 / XP system or tried to move the hard drive to another computer, you may have received the following error message 'STOP: 0x0000007B INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE '. This is because the hard drive does not contain the drivers for the hard drive controller for the new motherboard

If you are using a SCSI drive subsystem, usually you can install the target disk controller in the old system and install the drivers for the controller. You can then move the controller and the hard drive to the new system, boot, and remove the unused drivers

For IDE systems, it is a little more complicated since the IDE hardware is usually integrated on the motherboard itself. When Windows installs, it detects the IDE controller and only installs the driver for the detected hardware. When you upgrade the motherboard or move the hard drive to a new computer, Windows will not find the correct drivers installed. This article will show you how to install the correct drivers so that you can move the hard drive

If you are interested to find out which drive controller Windows detected, look in the file \WINNT\setupapi.log. Before you begin this procedure, please have a good backup of the current system

1. Boot the system using the hard drive in the old system. Copy the following text into a file and call it copy.reg

Im my experience, you need to copy the whole thing even if you think you know the target driver.

2. Extract the following files from \winnt\system32\i386\driver cache\i386\driver.cab and put them into the \winnt\system32\drivers directory: atapi.sys, intelide.sys, pciide.sys, and pciidex.sys. If the directory contains other cab files for service pack 1 (SP1.CAB) or service pack 2 (SP2.CAB), get the files from there instead so that you are using the latest files.

3. Right click the copy.reg file and select Merge to add it to your registry. Confirm all prompts.

4. Move the hard drive into the new system and reboot. You should be able to boot normally.
