Windows XP (Volume Error)

By TobeJ ·

Just today I ghosted one SATA drive to another, everything went as per normal, except for one thing. Every time the windows XP OS is rebooted, there is an error that comes up.. It is saying that Windows XP cannot install the device "Volume". There is a pictoure of a Hard Drive in the error.. Now I have looked for error codes in the event viewer, none to be found (system / application etc).. I have looked under Device manager, nothing showing under other.. Kind of lost with this.. I have to click NEXT 3 times, and then it works perfect..

Any Ideas?

Tx - Toby.

Consider this workaround

If this is a false positive error notice, you can suppress it if you wish with the following Registry tweak:


Create a new DWORD called NoPopupsOnBoot and give it a value of 1. Reboot.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3.If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
