There is no disk in the harddrive message

  Icky 14:44 31 Jan 05


I've been getting this message when Windows XP is booting up: "There is no disk in the drive. please insert a disk into drive\device\harddisk4\DR14". It sometimes has harddisk2 or harddisk3.
I can click on cancel, retry or continue.
If I click on cancel twice or continue twice the message disappears and the computer works as normal.
How can I stop this message appearing?
Thanks for any help.

This can be caused by a faulty drive, but I had similar problems when I installed Quick Time. If you have QT set to run at startup this could be the cause.

I've even uninstalled Quicktime but the problem still remains.

I still haven't fixed it.
The error message started a few days after I had another internal drive fitted as a slave drive.
All works OK except for the error message.
The workshop that installed the new hard drive don't know what's wrong and think it's a bug in Windows.
I have installed the SP2 upgrade.

Any other ideas anyone?
