Hello everyone, first I'd like to say this looks like a great site and I plan to use it and pass it along as much as possible. Secondly, I started to install Win XP HOME on a pc, and when i went to format the HD it would get all the way to 100% and then tell me it failed formatting... I even tried another HD and got the same result... Then I put the HD in an external case and used my working machine to format it, and it formatted just fine... So I put it back into the OS'less machine and proceeded to install XP, it gave me an option to format or use the partition as is, and I used it as is... after the cd copied all the files windows starts to reboot and tells me if i have a floppy to take it out... I have tried leaving the cd IN and not "pressing any key to boot from cd" and it hangs up with the "press any key to boot from cd...." prompt on the screen... so I tried taking it out when it was ready to reboot.. and I get through the motherboard screen and then i get a white blinking cursor in the top left of the screen.... Im building this machine as a donation for a battered womens shelter, and I'm supposed to already have it done :\ please help if you can..
