Post Install Problems with Hard Drive in Windows

Since having installed OSx86 on a hard drive, I have been having frequent problems if I boot back to Windows.


The OSX and XP installs are on entirely differnet drives, but the running of OSX seems to affect operations when in Windows.


I run both installs on IDE-0. When one is running the other drive is completely removed. The Mac operations are 100% ok, it's all smooth and good. Once I boot into Windows though, problems begin. The hard drive keeps stalling (I say stall, I can hear it start and stop spinning). Windows freezes up.. sometimes it comes out of it sometimes it doesn't. Other times I'll get odd BSOD's (like "Unknown hard error").


This is all directly related to when I've been running OSX. I thought maybe that OSX ran in different mode from DMA, and verified upon boot into Windows that I was on DMA if available (which I was) and it was.


Has anyone noticed any similar mishaps, or found a solution that may get rid of my problem?
