    I have a Presario 8000T and wanted to move the drive to my Promise
    controller. I first installed the controller and the drivers for it in
    Windows XP. I then moved the drive from the onboard IDE to the Promise
    card. The card is detected correctly in the BIOS. When booting to the
    hard drive the computer crashes before anything happens. I suspect the
    problem has to do with the master boot program that Compaq uses to
    enable their System Recovery.

    I would suspect you don't have the right drivers for it to be a BOOT drive.
    That usually takes a clean install on the drive.
