I was reading the forum from Quin 8484 from May June 2007 time frame. I could not get anything to work on the drive that was installed. But. I had an old computer sitting around that had XP on it. So I installed it and tried it out. It had problems also. But,I followed along with the forum and when I did the chkdsk and got some problems fixed. but it still booted the same. I then did the bootcfg /rebuild and I got the option to select which system I wanted to use. It took a while to load but it loaded to windows. After start up the keyboard works but the mouse doesn't work atm. since it is a USB Wireless checking batteries and such also for them. Also don't see it loaded. So might not have loaded drivers. I also have a hardware installation window in the middle of the scree that will not go away. everything is running very slow and as I was typing this it was shut down and rebooted. And now I get Disk read error occurred, Press CTL+ALT+DEL. I did it again and it started and I got an Application Error. Failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). click to terminate.Quins post
What started all this was I decided to check for window updates and load and install them. once it was done I could not get back in with safe mode or with xp disk.
I am running Windows XP Pro on the machine
asrock 775 dual vista mother board
Pentium D 930, 3GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 2x2 MB L2 Cache
I have 2 gig of ddr 400 chips 1Gig each
ATM I have the old drive from the other computer installed since I am getting a little somewhere with it.
Thanks for any advice with this.
