I have upgrade my storage and I'm clone my HDD (entire files including OS Windows XP) to the new HDD.

The old HDD is PATA or IDE the new is SATA.

The problem is after I removed my old HDD my new HDD can't boot to Windows, It will get this message "Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in Selected Boot device and press a key"

Is there any *.ini file that I can change??
If there is one, please inform me to do that..

Best solution
