and installing windows ~ Does matter if I use my windows XP or 7 disc ~ My hard drive will format then restart over and over ~ Also if I do with using my Windows 7 disk it will still show it trying to boot into windows XP ~ ?
Also I dont use the quick format ~ I go the long route ~ Once its reformatted I cant get it to install Windows XP or 7 ~ ? All it wants to do is restart over and over ~
My son was using it a college and it started hanging up on start up so I walked him through formatting and it will do that find I believe ~ Just want install windows XP or 7 afterwards ~
blackmancer I will see if I can get the WD tool kit to work ~ It wouldn't before ~ Now I have it loading up to the XP window ~ Before there was no movement on the bar and now there is ~ I closed the extra cores down so now its back to being X2 550 ~ Doesn't seem like its going to load ~ Still stuck on the start up XP screen ~ Going now to try the WD tools ~
Reset the MB once again and now its finishing the install with the XP disc ~ Will keep you up to date ~ Thanks for your help so far ~ I may need you once again if you have time ~ No hurry are I have a good laptop to do most anything I need ~ This is a system I build for my son when he was in college ~
