I've been trying to fix an old computer for a long time. I've tried everything, but still no look. My problem is that I can't install an OS on it. If I try install xp or server 2003, it'll give me the blue screen of death, or say something's messed up with the NTFS.SYS

I've tried 2 different hd's, but I get the same errors. Any help would be appreciated.

What exactly was the message you received with the bsod?

Have you tried wiping the drive prior to partitioning and installing the OS?

You can download a free trial of Wipe Drive here.


something's up with NTFS.SYS on the first drive. On the second one, it says there's a problem with new hardware.(I've never put any new hardware expect for maybe a video card).

And yes I've wiped both hard drives many times.
