    Hi,
    Recently, I purchased an External Casing box of Gemini make. I had a old PC in which Windows had got corrupted and I could not get it to boot (I get that 'not a system disk' warning). So, I tried to connect the old HD to the casing and through it to a new PC where I wanted to make it dos bootable and then install Windows back. BTW, The old PC's floppy drive also has gone kaput.

    Now, when I tried to connect the casing to the PC, it was recognised and the drivers got installed. However, after this, the hard disk still did not come up on the 'My computer'... As per some site suggestion, I tried to open Computer Management in Admin Tools and see Removable Storage, but I got an error after trying to refresh for a long time...

    What could be the problem? I will post the exact error message tomorrow morning...
