I need Windows to do something so I tried installing it and it won't install. It will just hang with a black screen after "checking my hardware configuration". The cd-rom drive indicator isnt lighted up while my HDD indicator flashes red continuously. Anyone help?
I've managed to solve the problem. I got a copy of Win 2K which apparently can boot and then formatted my partition into NTFS. Then Win XP can install. I think Win XP can't work with my GNU/Linux filesystem or something.
I don't have a clue about it not booting up. Something having to do with the mobo or the CD-drive.
As far as the HDD blinkin:
I know this might be stupid, but maybe the leds are wrong. If you switch them around your HDD led can be green and you power button can be the reset button.... kinda annoying, but it's funny when you have a guest over and want to use the PC.
