How do I remedy inaccessible_boot_device after cloning scsi drive onto ide?

By rscssmd ·
My operating system is Windows 2000.
I cloned my scsi drive onto an ide drive and would like to be able to boot into the OS from the IDE; however I get inaccessible_boot_device. Are there any changes that can be made to the boot.ini file to get it to go into windows.

Well, if you still have the SCSI and data is safe on it

first check the partition table and make sure the W2K partition was set "Active" - sometimes that doesn't happen.

Failing that, you might try FDISK /MBR to reload the master boot record onto the IDE drive.

If that doesn't work, you may need a commercial standalone boot fixup solution.
