I am not sure what you mean. I have a couple of bad NT drives. I took one of them and put it in the xp machine just to see if it gave me the same problem that it gave me when it was in the NT machine. I think I was trying to eliminate other problems like motherboard in the NT machine. Anyway, it did give me the same problem so I figure I just need to create an NT hard drive. Then my next problem will be all my scan and print codes that run my machine but that is a whole other story. Please let me know what you think I should do since I don't really understand your question. Thanks for replying.
