Disk read error - XP on a new ATA WD HD Tags: Configuration Disk Read Error HD Windows XP Last response: October 21, 2007 9:21 PM in Windows XP Share gg_gg October 21, 2007 9:59:38 AM hi, I've just replaced my old HD with a new ATA WD5000AAKS hard drive on an ASUS K8N board. Tried to install a fresh XP SP2 (from CD), created a NTFS partition, formatted and installed XP. After the first boot, I get the message "Disk read error, press CTRL+DELETE". I do have an access to the HD, see the files but it won't boot. The new HD is detected by the BIOS it is on the boot list. I already tried: fixmbr, fixboot, chkdsk /R I do have the latest BIOS ver (however it is already 1 year old) Any idea how to proceed?? Many thanks Gil More about : disk read error ata g-paw October 21, 2007 9:21:04 PM Check the Boot sequence in the BIOS. If that doesn't do it, try clearing the CMOS, instructions will be in the mobo or computer manual Can't find your answer ? Ask !
