Two days back i bought A WD caviar green 1TB hdd. With my mobo (P5rd2-vm) i created a partion of 180 Gb..worked fine but as soon as i created the next partiton with 200 gb space the pc suddenly freezes....
now if i try to boot the pc with the new HDD connected,the pc won't Boot . PLEASE HELP
Use the WD hardrive software and start over. Set the partition to the maximum size. The software may ask you to identify your windows version to determine the partition sizes. Then it asks if the new drive will be the boot device or secondary drive. After it is done, you may have the option of cloning the new drive using your old drive. I do this all the time, and it saves lots of time. I use maxblast 5.0, which works if you are using a seagate or maxtor drive.
Thanx for the reply bro but..... if i connect my HDD to the mobo then the it doesn't boot up . I tried a lot by booting up from my old hdd and then plugging in the new hdd and if i do so the Pc freezes. Does my mobo has any limit to partition size or something ? Coz during Xp installation I created 180 gb partition then as soon as created the next partition with 200gb... FREEZE my pc stopped responding . Now this happens whenever i connect the new HDD
