I have a very frustrating problem that I am hoping someone can help me with. I recently built up a new system--Pentium D with a Maxtor 200GB ATA100 drive.
I have attempted to load Windows 2000 Pro and 2 copies XP Home Edition and have encountered a similar problem on both . . .
I am able to boot the setup program from CD, it will format my HD and begin installing files, but it has trouble copying 6 or so different files from the CD, then it will error out with a blue screen of death.
I have tried 2 hard drives and 2 cd drives and still have the same
I have tested the Maxtor drive with the included MaxBlast software, and it has passed all tests.
Very frustrating, any help would be GREATLY appreciated, thank you, Eric
