My system is as follows:
Dell Dimension 5500, desktop
- currently only have a 30g IDE hard drive in there; once I get the O/S up and running, I'll reinstall my SATA drive
- I'm using a windows XP pro cd to reinstall
So I boot to the CD and partition my hard drive then begin the setup. Windows copies the files to the HD and then it needs to restart.
Here is my issue - when it restarts, it goes right back into the Setup Utility and wants me to go through the same steps I just went through.
I've searched around on the forum but can't seem to find anyone with the exact same issue. I figure it could be an issue with my BIOS making the system boot to the CD again but I've tried to fix it with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
