I have multiple hard drives. One for programs (C:) and one for data (D:).
My plan was to install Windows 7 on a new SSD drive which would replace my current (C:). Windows 7 wouldn't install onto the SSD for an unrelated reason. So back to XP.
However, when I booted back to XP my data drive (D:) (which I didn't touch) now shows up as a 'Foreign' (Dynamic) disk in Disk Management.
When I try to import the foreign disk, the dialog shows the single partition as 'OK', but when I click OK, I get an error.
This is the error from the system log:
Event Type: Error Event Source: LDM Event Category: None Event ID: 2 Date: 11/23/2009 Time: 11:28:47 PM User: N/A Computer: SILENTBOB Description: INTERNAL Error - A disk group with the specified name already exists (C100007A).
And just prior to that error, is this warning:
Event Type: Warning Event Source: LDM Event Category: None Event ID: 1000 Date: 11/23/2009 Time: 11:28:47 PM User: N/A Computer: SILENTBOB Description: Disk group SilentbobDg0: Two disk groups have the same name
The disk won't import.
How can I fix this? Thank you for any help.
