I'm trying to install Windows XP Professional. I go through all the steps; partioning my drive, copying all the files on to the hd, ect. Then when it goes to reboot it says "Primary master hard disk fail".
I've looked at many things that could of caused such an error, no solution has worked yet. I've tried 2 different hard drives and exactly the same thing happens.
In BIOS I can manually find the hard drive via IDE HDD AUTO DETECTION.
ASUS P2B-F motherboard
Pentium 3 500 MHz
512MB of RAM
7GB hard drive
This is my last resort, hopefully someone can help.
