: I would like to install an old harddrive (an IBM DCAA-33610) on my new
: computer running MS Windows 2000. There are three partitions on the old
: drive containing lots of important documents, so I really want it to work.

: Iīve tried to install it myself; when the computer boots up it finds the new
: harddrive, but when itīs done booting and I see the desktop the computer
: just suddenly shuts down and starts to boot up again.

: When it shuts down I get a blue screen where it says that it is dumping
: something (I havenīt been able to read all the text yet though..).

: Does anybody know what could be wrong (except my bad english : ))?
: Is the harddrive not compatible with my new computer?? Iīve tried with an
: even older harddrive and It worked perfectly.

: Please help!

I understand that win2k is VERY PICKY about the HDDs; sounds like your HDD is incompatible for some reason. Maybe microsoft or IBM have an article or FAQs about it.

Good Luck,
