Picked up two Dell Optiplex PCs off eBay a little over a week ago and they just arrived today. Hooked the first up, booted just fine, installed Windows 2000 Server on it, and surprisingly enough no hiccups--though I did do it by my MCSE 70-215 walkthrough instructions. Hooked up the second to install Windows 2000 Professional, and it hung on the Dell bios loading page. Had to turn the machine off, and it did it again. On the third try I got an error message stating that it failed to load the Checkpoint [Krst]. Interesting....never owned a Dell made pc so will have to do some investigating. Hopefully all will be well and I'll get my dev setup and working and maybe load Azureus and Folding@Home so they're not just sitting there when I'm not working.
