Hey guys... i reckon im gonna go bald scratching my head at this one.. I have a drive.. TRYING to install windows ME on a computer with this hard drive
After the first setup screen when u choose country and etc.. She starts putting the files onto the drive.. and thats no problem...
but after the first reboot... it just stays in dos. and with a _ flashing.. The hard drive is booting fine with no damage as i put the drive in another computer and works properly when copying files to the drive...
SO i thought it was the windows me disc.. so i get my backup copy.. try that ... doesnt work
so i try that drive in another computer.. thinking that it might be the computer... same thing!
funny as it is.. ive got 2 drives that do this.. and these are 100% working drives!!!!
so i get another third drive that was already formatted ... and try it in that same computer and it works
ive tried deleting partitions.... full formatting .. a thousand times in adiff ways.. and using fat32 i cannot work out why
is there a way to flash a hard drive?
i dunno gyus please help us out.. these drives work properly... i just cant understand why they wont "boot" up windows

Are you booting initially from the cd or a floppy disk? Try setting the bios to boot from hard drive when it reboots the first time.
Whatever you do, DONT I repeat DONNNNTTT use windows ME for any other thing than playing freesbee with a small dog...
