    I've been using this PC without issue until I ran out of HD space. I
    upgraded from a 80GB Seagate (IDE) to a 160GB WD Cavier SE (IDE). I
    ghosted the old drive to the new without issue. Ran fine for 2 weeks
    and all the sudden my PC locks up! When I reboot, I get this an error
    saying: A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

    I've tried everything from changing the partition size, disabling IDE
    Busmaster (WD suggestion), checking the drive for error, Windows
    recovery console with fix mbr chkdsk and on and on...

    Basically I'm getting ready to give up. I just reflashed the BIOs to
    the beta and I'm waiting to Ghost the original image back.. While I
    wait I wanted to ask if anyone else has run into this problem. I
    found a thread on the web that started in '03 and it's still going on
    without anyone finding a solution.

    Please, if you have a solution to this, POST it for me. I need as
    much help with this as possible.

    BTW, I'm running Windows 2000 Pro and I can say the problem 24 hrs ha
    after I installed a few MS patches and patched for DST.
