    Hello, my cpu came partitioned. It had one hard drive that was partitioned into a C and D drive. I wanted more room, so I bought two new drives. I cloned the C drive onto a new drive and it was fine. It boots up (windows xp media center) with no trouble.

    I added the second new drive and formatted it with Disk Director Suite. When I rebooted the machine (which it told me I had to at that point) I got an error message:
    MBR Error 1
    Press any key to boot from floppy

    I tried using the Windows installation cd to fix the mbr. But it wouldn't take my password. Then I tried to create a disc using the "mbrautowrite_en.iso" as stated in one of the posts I found. I booted form this disk and I pressed any button when propted, but then it gave me another error, stating there was no boot disk.

    I'm not sure what else I can try? Any help would be appreciated...thanks

    Hello micnite,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Cloning and System Transferring Software.

    Could you please do the following?

    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the floppy drive and proceed with creating the bootable diskette;
    - Then please boot the computer under consideration from this diskette, wait for report creation process to complete and send the 'report.txt' file from the floppy disk to support@acronis.com along with the link to this thread.

    We will certainly try to find a solution of your problem.

    Thank you.
