    Hi,
    I dualboot W8 & XP, this morning W8 did not boot normally but, in a very restrictaed way reminisent of the XP "Safe Mode", with the error icon saying
    " HD problem" back your files, pls see attached.
    I recycled the HD cables rebooted W8 several times with the same, then booted in XP & all worked fine, no problems reported, even FSX worked.
    Can anybody help on this please?
