I am trying to fix a pc for a friend. He has a HP Pavillion with a SATA HD (1) and SATA Lightscribe DVD Writer (2).
System is set to Boot from DVD first then HD.
The HD is the Primary Master and the DVD is the Primary Slave.
Installation of XP Pro begins but at first reboot the installation process starts all over again rather than picking up from where it left off.
Just to make sure I have taken the HD out an formatted (NTFS) it in my own machine to make sure it is empty. I can write and save to the HD while it is in my PC without any problems.
Does any one know what is going on and have some solutions?
