system partition gone booot partition available how to boot? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had two harddisks
    1. 80 GB  --  partion 1(active) - system (boot.ini,NTLDR...) and another
    2. 160 GB --  partion 1(active) - boot (windows,programfiles...) and other two partitions
    Now the 1st hardisk is gone.
    But I have windows in the working harddisk. How can i get it to work.

    Using recovery console in XP CD, i can log in to the windows installation.

    but BOOTCFG /SCAN gives this error

    " Failed to successfully scan disks for Windows installations. This error may be caused by a currept file system, which would prevent Bootcfg from successfuly scanning. Use chkdsk to detect any disk errors.
    Note: This operation must complete successfully in order for the /add or /rebuild commands to be utilized.
    "

    but CHKDSK is successful for C: (Windows partition).
