While I was installing windows 2000 on my laptop, installation froze. I let it set for hours and then finally turned it off and rebooted. Now it still hangs and I don't have a boot disk. Any suggestions?
My computer is a Dell laptop, Inspiron 7500 with 256 mb ram, I was using win 2K, then tried to put in a clean install and the installation froze. I turned it off and retried, same thing it froze in the same spot. Please help
On the screen now it is installing devices and is froze about 25% through that installation procedure. I can turn it off and back on and it will freeze there in that exact spot every time. I am installing the full version of Win 2K, and yes it does format my hard drive. I am pretty sure the cd is clean, no scratches.
I have the exact same problem above, updating Win98 to 2000. The installation ran through to completion (100%), and the system rebooted to apply new settings, only when it rebooted it froze in one of the initial screens (BIOS?). I am non-techie and am looking more for help in recovering the data on the PC. Any help you can provide me will be much appreciated. Thanks.
