Hi

Did you manage to get a solution to your problem ?

I'm receiving the same error message - and I'm installing or trying to install new operating system...

Think its a booting error too...

do you have a cd drive in the machine as well? is it on a different IDE cable than the HD? if so try switching the cables...(use the cable that's going to the CD for the HD) while you're back there see how the drive is jumpered (master, slave, cable select?)

Hi Thanks for getting back to me so quickly - I'm really pulling what little hair I have left out on this one.

I've tried switching the little black disk type selector around - at the moment its now looking for a 'bootable' disk, so I'm scratching my head now rather than pulling out my hair! I'm going to go ahead and try and create a Win2k bootable on four diskettes... what do you think ?
