1. continuous loop of installations if i have the cdrom set as first bood device.
2. if i set the first boot device to the hdd it continuously restarts.
I have ran windows on the system using the old ide hd, I think the new hd might be bad. Now that i think about it i probably should have gotten some sort of command prompt the first time i booted it up but i didn't.
Is anyone an expert at this that could shed some light on my problem?
