Windows won't install, Stuck when loading files!


I made a computer from my brother, with parts from other computers. But windows won't install. When I put the CD in the drive, I will start the computer using the CD. It check my Hardware configuration and asks me to install a non-windows SCSI/RAID driver, I will not install this driver and I'm continueing as normal. This is when it goes wrong: when loading 'Windows Executive' (The first file it loads) the computer gets stuck. Can somebody help me?

Thanks in advance.

PS: I have 2 CD drives and I tried putting the CD in both. And I tried other CD's as well. This doesn't works at all so I suspect a hardware problem or BIOS problem.

  1. If you are using SATA HDDs, you may need to install a RAID or ACHI driver before Windows can find an installation drive. You do that by pressing the F6 key (read the bottom of the blue install screen early in loading Windows Executive). A little later the Installation will open a screen for you to press S to install the driver from a floppy drive.
  2. But I don't have a SATA HDDs. I've got IDE. And I don't have a Floppy with windows but a CD.
  3. Problem solved!

    For everyone with the same problem:

    Go mess around with the RAM. This will most likely be the problem.
