|Exactly my thought too - I tried that except after windows does it setup configuration and then reboots the PC it slams down on reboot and won't continue installation :(|
Thank you for the reply.
So, I just took the hdd out of the problem PC. I put it into a Dell Dimension 4600 desktop and BING! Windows begins the setup process without missing a beat.
The only component hooked to the problem PC from the original setup is the processor. Everything else is changed out. What could be on the hdd that is arguing with the processor?
I can install another Windows hdd in this PC and it works just fine. I even put a hdd with Ubuntu on it and it worked just fine. ?????
So, I will finish setup again in the Dell and the put the hdd back into the problem PC - wishful thinking I'm sure - been here once before don't know why it would be different this time - we'll see when its finished.
