W2k sp4 error updating your system has occurred

I would have thought this would cause the Hardisk number (1) to change ... Maybe that's because what I think of as my "data disk" has no bootable partitions on it?Norton's disk doctor tells me the MBR on it is invalid ... Under the Disk Management plug-in of Computer Management, I can view the properties of each drive (right-click on gray area).

And I'll be happy to hear about any other thoughts you may have on this subject, too.Adam Ive had the same problem, my PC has been fine for months, no new hardware installed then the other day I installed dvd clone and cloned a DVD, not sure whether this caused it but afterwards noticed the error message in event viewer - "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk1\D" Ive searched the net and found nothing conclusive, some say its motherboard controller, some say its the cable, some say it the ICHR chipset and SATA drives, some say it hard disks.... My hard drives all check out fine and Ive had no problems up to now, could it be software ? I had a perfectly running system (w2k sp4 and intel i815ep chipset). Most likely you may find the workarounds to make Google Chrome work in this post. Unfortunately its impossible to manage the comments on this post so am shutting down the comments.The original name for the operating system was Windows NT 5.0 and its Beta 1 was released in September 1997, followed by Beta 2 in August 1998.

NT 5.0 Beta 1 was similar to NT 4.0, including a very similar themed logo.

but I don't have any bootable paritions on it so I was not worried about this message (should I be? This shows me to which IDE cable (primary or secondary) each device is connected.

It also gives me a "port number," a "target ID," and a "LUN." It SEEMS that Port Number relates to the IDE channel (i.e., Port 0 = Primary, Port 1 = Secondary) and Target ID relates to the slot on the IDE cable (i.e., 0 = master, 1 = slave). If anyone can tell me for sure that I'm interpreting the Port / Target ID info correctly, I would certainly appreciate it.

Why not let Microsoft update your system with all its fixes and then see if your system functions correctly? When you defrag a drive the data address gets rewritten.

Remember, data scattered all over the disk is being rewritten as the conslidation takes place.

I'm having an error similar to the one described here in this very forum by this (very long) thread:
