Make a Windows 98SE bootable cd. I like the WinME boot disk
because of the newer FDisk for larger drives-137 Gb.
Get an iso of Windows 98SE boot disk or make one on the
other rig you said is working.
Then boot to your cdrom with the boot cd, do the partitioning
and reformatting etc to setup new drive, then...
Boot to your cdrom again with your W98SE cd to install the OS.
What are these "errors" on your new hard drive?
