Hey all.

Well one of our computers is kind of on the fritz. We got a new hard drive and loaded up XP onto it. Then we put all the stuff off the old hard drive onto the new hard drive. (Virus scanned by McAfee first).

The problem is that Windows will not boot from the HD no matter what I try. The CD must be the drive, it must boot from it, try to run setup (blue-screen style set up) and then we have to push f9 twice to exit from that before it will open windows.

It's a little frustrating and the person who uses the computer is well... very annoyed.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
