Question about Computers & Internet
Win 98 and win me install and works great but no matter what I do 2k and xp will not install
Use the CD that came with the motherboard. do a setup and configure the motherboard. you need to update the Chipset software in order for the motherboard to recognize the hard drive header.

seems like a hard drive issue. (Unless you received an error message from the system during setup of 2k or XP)? (Also hope its a certified Window CD & not a copy).
Here are two ways to get around this. The fastest is to use a software program to clean the hard disk drive. Best software I have come across it Boot & Nuke. Download from this site; http://www.dban.org/download (Darik's Boot and Nuke 1.0.7 ).
On the other hand, its suggested you go to the hard disk drives manufactures web site & download their utility software which will allow you to create a bootable floppy disk too. Boot the system to the floppy. If there is an issue with the drive the floppy software will repair it. If there is a problem with either the MBR or FAT it will also fix it. You'll also be able to setup the type of file system, NTFS or FAT32, ECT. If you include the manufacture & model number of the 120GB drive I'll include the web site for downloading.
For Seagate & Maxtor go here; http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/
Western Digital start here: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?lang=en
If you did receive an error message while attempting to install, post the message here!
Good luck dewasu1803!
