all installs must be done on the machine itself or you run into what you did. Try using an ide controller card and install it on the asus machine. boot up, let windows recognize it then shutdown. now move the 6g h/d to the ide controller card, then start it up. it should boot off the ide controller card which has the 6g h/d on it. Great, now move onto the gateway. Install the controller card onto that machine. set it to boot off the 6g drive. see if that works.
i have never done this, but a tech at my job who has been here for 20 some odd years said it does.
what i would do:
just reinstall it on the p2 machine and be patient. do it right the first time and it will not take you as long. now you have to do it twice. got me?
