|Well I hooked the usb cd drive up to my other laptop and use virtual box to install windows in the virtual pc with the same cd so the cd as well as the usb cd drive works. As for the sata drive I know that works because I was able to boot and install the iso off of that same sata drive on my other laptop. Ever since I hooked it up to the netbook I get that error. If I take the hard drive out of the netbook and try to boot off of the usb drive I get the same error. I even tried using grub4dos to boot the same iso that I made from the cd that I have directly off of the sata drive and I get the same problems. |
I have no idea what to do now and the iso file does work as it runs fine in the virtual pc as well as my other laptop. Now I was able to install the same cd with the usb cd drive on a Fugiji tablet that is made for 98 and 2000 and the setup runs fine.
I have no idea what to do. The next thing i'm thinking about doing is copying the files onto one of the fat32 partitions and try to install windows directly off of the hard drive in ms-dos. If that doesn't work then idk what to do. If you look up windows 2000 setup hangs zg5 on google alot of other people are having the same issues. The drivers that are installed on the netbook also supports 2000 so I don't see why it shouldn't be able to run it. I also came across as youtube video showing the zg5 booting up with windows 2000.
I'll try the other tool out for the hard drive but as I mention I even had the same problem when I tried to install it onto the internal 8 gb ssd which I removed and replaced with a sata 160 gb hd. So I don't think its a hd problem.
Again thank you for your help
