basically i took my friends Hard drive home cause he wanted me to install windows for him and then hand him back the HD.
but for some reason its not letting me do it. i go through the same procedures.
unplug my existing hd, and then plug in his HD (to save confusion). and load up the RAID drivers (sata2 hd's).
wait for it to finish loading up the files (blue screen)
and straight after that, its 'supposed' to go to the next blue screen where you press f8 and select which HD to install windows to.
mine does not do that afterwards, instead it just gives me a blue screen ERROR.
ive tried near enough everything to solve this problem, including taking my whole pc apart and inspecting anything wrong with my hardware and everythings fine.
so im guessing its a procedure that im doing wrong somewhere?
so im thinking, is there a way where i can basically install windows while IN windows.
cause if i run my windows from MY HD as normal and connect my friends hard drive so that i can see it in 'my computer', and install it whilst already in windows. is that possible?
or is there a way i can just copy the files from the cd to the HD and it will run windows as normal?....basically like a copy-and-paste procedure....or is it abit more complicated than that?
would really appreciate any help i can get on this guys.....THANKS
