Hello people, this is my first post on this forum so be gentle :D
I've bought a knew PC without any OS on it, cause I thought I could easily install Windows XP Pro on it myself as I have done a couple of times before. But alas I couldn't, and need help. It goes a little something like this:
Boot from CD ... check
Install Windows "Hit Enter" ... check
Press F8 to accept EULA ... check
Install fresh copy of Windows "Press Esc" .... check
Highlight first drive (C: ) and choose it to install on it (yes there's enough space on it) ... check
Format the partition using the NTFS file system ... check
All goes well and we come to this screen:
I take out the CD (tried to leave it in as well). But after it reboots it comes to the screen where I can choose to press some keys and enter Boot Screen/POST Mode/Setup ... if I don't choose any of them then the PC will reboot again and come to the same screen and reboot again ....
1st Boot Device is set to Harddisk in the setup
It's a new PC so there shouldn't be any hardware fault.
I've fiddled a bit with the setup, but it all looks like it's right to me.
I hope someone has some ideas about what's wrong cause I'm all out of 'em ...
