Harddrive

Question

ok, i just built a computer. and my friend put my hard drive in his computer and formatted it, partitioned it and installed windows 2000. i put my hard drive back in my computer and load it up, and this is what it says

"INNACESSABLE_BOO_DEVICE"

CHECK FOR VIRUS ON YOUR COMPUTER, REMOVE ANY HARD DRIVES OR HARD DRIVE CONTROLLERS. CHECK YOUR HARD DRIVE TO MAKE SURE IT IS PROPERLY CONFIGURED AND TERMINATED. RUN CKDKS /F TO CHECK HARD DRIVE CORRUPTION, AND THEN RESTART YOUR COMPUTER....

You must look into your system setup and partition the harddive to your system.

You just build your computer, your setup will be different from his.

Your hard drive must be formatted and installed correctly to your system, not his.

Your system will not be able run the harddrive under his format.
