bad board, hd or cpu?
I just moved an old hand me down hp 6730 to a different case so i can upgrade it. when i formatted the hard drive and installed a fresh copy of win 98se, i got an error. the initial scandiskafter the os install came up with errors in directory structure and file systems. I reformatted a few times and still got the same error. I figured the hard drive was bad, so I took it to my 'real' pc and reformatted and installed 98se and it worked perfectly. I then took the new drive with the os on it and reinstalled it on the "junk" computer. upon bootup, it quickly flashed the win98 sceen, and than a "system.ini cannot be found" message appeared. what gives? aside from the case, power supply (whick is more powerful) cd rom/burner and floppy drive, evertying is from the same computer, even the power switch. i have trried for a week to fix this and i am stumped. can someone please point me int he right direction? thanks!
