I am replacing all of the components of my old XP system, just keeping the case and optical drives. I tried to format / partition the FAES drive on XP, but I couldn’t read the SATA6 drive. I tried running XP from the new MB, but keep getting blue screen of death.
I then tried booting Partition Magic ver 8. It tried to work, but only recognized 500 GB on the drive.
My WD drive must have been OEM because I didn’t get any software with the drive.
So, now I’m stuck. I suppose that I could install Windows 7 and then partition the disk once Win 7 was operational. Or, is there some bootable software that is available that will solve this problem?
