i'm trying to install xp on my pc but i have tryed every thing i changed my boot settings to cd rom and every thing but as soon as you safed and restarted and it wants to boot from the cd it does not prompt to boot from cd, infact it just doesn't want to go on.
i have changed my ide cable and the pin settings on my cd rom but still it gives me the same trouble i even used my sata ports and a sata compatable cd rom and still nothing happens can some one help me thanks.
yes i have tried a other cdrom. do you think that it will work if i take that hard drive an put it into my pc and install windows that way or wil windows sync with my hardware that's in my pc (if i can will it work in the other pc when i put the HD back into the pc)
Yes it looks like that because if managed to install windows on the hard drive but when i used it to boot up my pc to see if it works nothing happend, so i went and buy a new hard drive and used that one on the pc that was not working and it worked fine no problem i managed to install windows and stuff restarted a fiew times and it booted up fine every time.
thanks a mill
if there is something i can help with let me know and i can see if i can help
