i replied in another thread and u start a new one...
anyway....if u have 160GB...why not partition it?
try boot to DOS and use fdisk/mbr to refresh the master boot record
u can create DOS bootdisk by downloading the image from www.bootdisk.com
then remove all existing partitions and install your W2K again
the hard disk can be unbootable due to corrupted master boot record
btw, was the system running fine all the while? can be configuration problem too

didn't know there is sp4! 160GB works fine on my 18-month old GIGABYTE PA800 mobo. Use the boot CD to format the disk completely first.

why not try repartitioning using XP and not partition magic? at least see if the problem repeats.

I'm not using XP i'm using W2K coz under certain application W2K is faster than XP.
Anyone here got any input for me???
