I've been searching for a solution to this problem but cannot find anything yet....
I have a fairly new laptop - Intel Centrino (855 chipset) 1.4Ghz with all the toys bells and whistles. I know the silly thing works, and works well because I've had a full install of Linux running on it for over 2 months. It's time to rebuild it though, because I need to have it dual boot Windows/Linux (business reasons).
I pop in the Win2k master disk and boot. The Win2K text screen comes up, it goes through it's loading every driver under the sun routine, finishes that, and then says "Loading Windows 2000". The blue text screen is replaced by a black screen, and the CDROM spins down. That's it. That's as far as it gets.
I've tried connecting an external monitor, and it displays everything the LCD does... including the nice black screen.
So.. any suggestions, ideas etc? What's going wrong? What is causing the install to come to a screeching halt?
