XP Needs New Hard Drive?
My last computer was built by a company (similar to Dell) and I added a 120gb hard drive to go with the 40gb already in there.
I have just made a new rig, formatted the 40 from the old computer, plugged it into the new one and reformatted and ran XP setup.
My computer always tells me it can not find a file:
It is a totally legal legit copy and the same happens when I install the home edition from my old PC. On some installs it will work ok maybe only asking for one missing file, but then it will freeze during time/date setup or give me a rubbish IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message.
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON - is there any chance it could be down to the hard drive?? Or CD-ROM?? When I format the drive, it always leaves 8MB unpartitioned space, could this cause the problem or does it usually have left overs?
