  1. If it works without the supposedly bad drive then it is most likely a bad drive.

    I was unclear in my message. I just unpluged the Hard Drive that was working fine to install another hard drive and once I replaced it the ASUS motherboard
    and finds it and calls it a bad drive. I have set the BIOS to ACHS but still unable to boot computer. Now it says missing BootMgr once it boots. Sorry I was not
    clear in first message. Maybe I just screwed up the BIOS.


    Thank You

  3. If windows was install in IDE mode this needs to be done to change it to ACHI http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976
    Missing bootMgr is possible that it was on the drive that you disconnected.
