A "new computer" would not have W2K on it so obviously it's not "new". Was W2K working before you tried to install XP? W2K is a direct upgrade path so all you really had to do was boot into W2K, pop in the XP CD & follow the instructions. Now it sounds like you either have a hardware problem or you screwed up the BIOS settings.
I bought from my friend he told me that it was working the first time i opened it was going to load Windows 2000 and then it stop and said ARRET DU SYSTEM then it closed alone.Also when i stardted to boot it with Windows XP it stoped and fichier est endommagé and then i had to restart my computer
If its my bios setting what do i have to do to fix it
Is This the only thing i can do Insert the disk system because i dont have it so is there any other way because now my computer opens because i fixed the power button wire that was connected on the motherboard but like i said now do i have to boot from system disk because that whats it ask
$20 or not, it sounds like your "friend" may have ripped you off.
You're not gonna be able to do a thing until you can get the drives recognized & the fact that they're not being recognized indicates a hardware problem. The 1st thing you should do is open the case & make sure the cables are connected to the drives correctly...also check the master/slave jumper settings.
