Tuesday night I came home and our PC Win XP is on, but the screen had a message that it couldn't boot up. I went out an bought a new harddrive and installed XP OS. What concerns me is that at the moment during the OS install the monitors blue screen lists a growing list about 55,000 (or now upto 68,000) of unreadable files. I was wondering if the unreadable fact is effecting the XP install on the new Hard drive? The old hard drive is set up as slave so maybe I can copy old files later on. Can anyone recall seeing numbers of files listed unreadable during an OS install before. Thanks for any help!
