Post XP install, error booting without USB Flash Drive - 03-31-2009, 01:13 AM
Hey guys, first post.
Just got my Mini 9 today after seeing a friend of mine's 2 weeks ago. I have been lurking this forum every day since!
Installed XP Pro SP3 via USB Flash Drive as outlined at http://komku.blogspot.com/2008/11/insta ... -disk.html
Everything is good, Windows comes up. Problem is, if I remove the USB Flash Drive I used to install, then reboot, I get an error that says "A Disk Read Error has Occurred. Press Ctrl+alt+del to restart"
If I put the flash drive back in, it will boot to XP fine.
I have looked at my Boot.ini on the C root and have tried messing with the arc paths, but cant seen to find the right combo, if the boot.ini is even the problem.
Has anyone used the method above and had this issue? And more importantly, have you found the solution?!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
