Boot Problem

System:

Duron 850
K7S5A Board
512 Mb 133 SDram
20Gb Primary HDD (C)
15Gb Slave HDD (D) (both hard drives attached to same ide cable)
50 speed CDrom (E)
Ricoh CD r/rw (F)(both cd drives attached to same ide cable)
32Mb Riva tnt2 AGP graphics
SB 128 PCI sound cardConnexant 56k internal modem.
Windows ME

Upgraded to Win XP pro over Win ME on above system.
Two unsolvable (by me) problems occurred:
When system is restarted I get a blue screen stating "non-mountable boot
device found" and I have to restart system by powering off at mains (this
works ok). The message on the blue screen says something about removing any
new hardware and running an anti virus test. (Did both - no change). This
only hapens when restarting/re-booting system while it is already running -
powering on from off is no problem.

Second problem is that XP installs Best data/Fax modem software for
Connexant and recognises modem but won't detect dial tone when I try to
connect - changing drivers and unchecking "wait for dial tone before
dialling" makes no difference. System worked fine under Me.

Any advice/assistance appreciated.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
