this might seem as if im beating about the bush a little bit but i'll try to keep it as short as i can:D
i have just brought a copy of windows xp professional (OEM) today and have taken it home to install on a machine of which i have just built. I dont usually have problems with installing operating systems so i cant understand whats gone wrong here.
ok spose it might help if i gave you some system information.
AMD sempron 2GHz processor
256 MB RAM
40Gig excel stor hard drive
heres the problem i have been having.
i have made attempts to install the software from the disc (as you do) but it is only getting as far as a black screen with 'setup is inspecting your hardware configuration. i have tried this 3 times and to no avail.
i have also checked the boot priorities and they look ok
boot priorities are
2 hdd 0
i have also checked the internal cabling etc. pls help im baffled again...:eek:
