Hello:

I have just installed a new Seagate SATA 200GB hard drive (ST3200822AS) and
partitioned and formatted it with Partition Magic 8.0 into 3 separate logical
partitions.

Ever since then, however, I have been getting several system failures (STOP
errors?) as I copied my files from my old hard drive to this new one.

Windows has also been almost consistently giving me a "Disk checking" screen
between the Windows XP loading (with logo and loading bar) and log-on screens
that deals with "correcting errors in index (number) for file (filename)" and
"recorvering orphane file (filename)". Disk checking deals solely with the
partitions on the new hard drive.

The Disk Checking screen has appeared not just once, but several times.

I am pretty sure that it's not my motherboard rejecting the drive, as it is
listed under my BIOS and Device Manger as "working properly". My primary
drive is also a Seagate SATA (ST380011A) and it's been working without errors
since I purchased my computer more than a year ago.

I am also sure that it's not jumper settings, since SATA hard drivers don't
seem to deal with jumper settings like their IDE counterparts.

Did I do something wrong somewhere between physically installing the drive
and logically partitioning and formatting it?

I have already repartitioned and reformatted the drive from scratch a second
time to make sure that I didn't do anything wrong, but the problem continues
to persist. At this point, I am willing to lost all data on the new drive. I
just want to get it working.

Why not try format/partition from Disk management?
as apposed to PM 8.00
BTW is this Norton PM or the origonal? if origonal was it updated ?
I've had some similar issues with using PM & sata

Why are you using Partition Magic? It sounds like either XP's native drive
manager or your drive''s manufacturer's utility would work just fine. I've
even had Maxtor's disk utility make the disk unreadable to XP. It makes
sense to let XP configure the HDs it's going to be using.
