On my BK630e book PC, bought a fresh copy of XP home edition full version and a 40GB drive to install on it. At the Starting Windows prompt where if I remember, the black WinXP screen replaces the standard text on blue opening motif, the keyboard lights go out, there is a seemingly audible click and the HDD light comes on and stays on...no steady flashing at all. No response results, however, if I load MS DOS 6.2, which I was able to get from the Goodwill, and Windows 98, where I am prompted for a lost product key.... The OS install and concludes in the case of MS DOS, above.
What could be the culprit? My suspicion is on the upgraded DVD RW drive that was not with the system originally, but the PC133 256MB was and tonight was tested with diagnostic software, no faults!
Even the techs are so far at a loss to suggest a fix, other then installing the original CPU and setting the BIOS voltage settings for the FSB to register correctly.
Since the bookPC is a seemingly unknown computer platform around here, info is not too hard to locate online.
