This WinXP installation was done yesterday. It was done with a Restore job coming from a BootIT NG Image for DOS backup.
Getting back to your question, this Windows installation was done as usual by pressing F6 key and inserting the SiS 180 RAID media when requested to do so.
From that point on, everything went well, all the way to the finish.
After the os was installed, all Windows updates from their website were downloaded and installed.
From this point, a complete backup of that partition was done on two dvd discs, dated: 01/25/2010.
I am interested in finding the cause of this problem. For example, about an hour ago, the system froze up for about a minute, or less. Random freeze states seem to be an issue with this installation.
Specifically, I want to know more about the generation of the SeaTools for Windows error messages.
Hard Disk Boot Priority:
1. Ch3 M:. ST3320613AS Seagate Barricuda 320GB
2. Bootable Add-in Cards
3. USB-HDD0 [4GB Flash drive]
4. .Ch0 M: WDC WD1600SB 160GB
As you can see, I am booting from the Seagate 320GB hdd. Please note that the Seagate drive and the DVD drive are SATA products and are connected to the motherboard, and the Western Digital hdd is connected to Ch 0 I have not been able to find any conflicts on the motherboard connections.
Finally, there is a problem, and it’s causes lies somewhere on the system.
I will keep trying until something turns up.
Thanks in advance for any input you may have.
