Question about IBM ThinkCentre M52 8113 - P4 551 3.4 GHz (811342U) PC Desktop
I have an IBM Thinkcentre M52 8113 jcg. I have replaced the hard drive and have a copy of xp pro which I have loaded before on my other computer. For some reason it will not load onto this one.
Any suggestions or help would be really appreciated.
Some more detail regarding this problem. I have downloaded and burnt the bios update iso image onto a CD. I have cleared the CMOS and selected the CD drive in th boot sequence. It has run the upgrade. When I try to boot to cd and reload Windows, it does not start the installation. I have tried with 2 sets of installation diks and it is the same. The hard drive is totally new and formated on my other computer. I have contacted IBM and they are sending recovery cd's. Does anyone know why I can't just load the windos OS on and does anyone know what these recovery cd's are?

Check to see if the CD is an upgrade. If so, load an older OS first and then use the CD to upgrade.
