Thanks for that info, but after checking on the sites, I still can't find a disk that allows an install from the Hard drive, Most all of the bootdisks allow formatting and all of the ntfs partitions, but then will only allow setup from the CD-ROM...
Every time I build a new system I like to create a backup of the original file system on the HD and install from there. Besides installing the OS faster it is good to have a backup for future installs.
Does SETUP Start??
Mine wouldnt install untill i did this....
go into the Bios (Del Key) before windows starts and select "cd rom" as first boot device with IDE0 as second, then it should start setup from the cd rom!
it starts setup, gets about half way through the copying setup files and then I get a disk read error, but the cd is fine... I have another computer that reads it perfectly, and like I said, I copied the whole cd to the HD fine to.
I have about 5000 Mp3 files, and a bunch of documents and such... basically it would take a BUNCH of CD's to back it all up and the other drive does not have the room for it all either... well, thanks for the help all... I'll have to try other things.
