    2.5" Hard Drives

    I bought a Rosewill 2.5" to 3.5" IDE adapter.. and a 40gb Western Digital 2.5" hard drive.. hooked it up any everything fine. When I boot the PC up, BIOS sees the hard drive. Windows setup loads all the drivers then after it says "Setup is starting windows" I get a blue screen with a 0x0000007b error, incompatible boot device. Has anyone else had this happen to them? The computer works with a regular hard drive, so I'm not sure what is wrong here. Thanks.

    Edit: Sorry, I meant post this in the General Hardware forum.. if someone could move it that'd be great.

    Have you tried this drive on another computer? Did you format it and everything prior to installing windows? You might have to specify it as active or bootable or something. I dunno. Those adapters work pretty well. I've had some trouble with mine wiggling loose though.
