    Hard drive replacement?


    Hi all.
    I have minor problem with upgrading a hard drive.
    I am running an old pentium lll with two hard drives. On the first hard drive I have two partitions of around 90GB each. On the first partition is installed winXP and on the second partition I have Suse 10.3, both booted by grub and living happily side by side. My second hard drive (which is formatted for windows) is only 4GB.

    My problem arises when I try to replace the 4GB with a 80Gb hard drive. When I disconnect the 4GB drive the system fails to boot up and complains with error 21.
    I am not a computer guru in any way at all and know nothing about geometry mismatches so any advice would be welcome.

    I realise that it is probably a simple problem but it is above my head.

    Regards Lee-nucks.
