I added a new hard drive to my old system, an Abit NF8 motherboard (http://www.uabit.com...age=1&model=235). I put the drive in, rebooted, made the DVD-Rom drive the first bootable device, and loaded the Windows XP disc. It formatted the drive (not the quick format), copied the files needed to install Windows, rebooted automatically, and then came up with the dreaded "Error Loading Operating System" error when it tried to load Windows to install.
I've contacted Abit, and my hd is compatible with their board (a 500g Seagate). They suggested a new power supply, but I've got a 420w supply in right now, and it was fine when my older 250g Seagate drive was in there before.
I've also tried loading the drive as "LARGE" instead of Auto in the Bios, but to no avail.
Any suggestions would be helpful!
