Re: Really Odd Error Message!!!
right, so ive decided to re-install an operating system
I cant find my xp cd, so i have decided to install win 2k pro
with my cd drive, im on the lanparty nf4 screen for *ages* ( i'm not sure whats up with that ) ..... but anyway, i get through the first stage of installing it ( copying files deleting xp, blah blah ) it tells me that it wants to restart and continue.... fair enough, i let it restart and whatnot BUT it always takes me back to the start of the setup again ( and i have progresed through that numerous times )
i unplugged the psu out of the cd rom drive, and the computer boots very promptly, and gives me the choice of starting up on win 2k, to continue the set up. (booting of the hd it seems ) it loads 2k and takes me to a different setup screen than before, but i need the psu plugged into the cd rom drive to continue
with the cd drive plugged in, and even when i make the hd 1st boot choice and remove cd rom drive from 2nd and third ( and remove it as primary slave ) it still wont boot off the hard drive
can anybody assist me with this?
