Aright, so I got my secondary all pieced together and all that good stuff. Now let me tell you. The two hard drives I have is one that's from a 4-5 year old peoplePC intel computer that's only 10gb don't even know what brand. Got it formatted fine. Other hard drive, is a western digital 8gb drive that was out of my old xbox
In the BIOS it recognized both drives and before I got the boot sequence set to CD it tried to boot up win98. Anyhow...upon installing all the files and where you're at the complete blue screen and it says 'Setup is starting up windows' It just sits there. I've tried 2 cd-rom drives, both of which suck and are old
so I'm thinking that may be the problem. The first drive couldn't read all the setup files off the disk, but the other cd-rom (also out of my grandmas old comp) finishes the setup files way faster. But then it too freezes at 'Setup is starting up windows'
Anyone have any speculations? Could it be that the CD-rom drives suck or that one of the HD's is causing it to mess up? But if that is the case why would it recognize them both in the BIOS just fine. Thanks
