Question about Dell AMD 386/33 Desktop Computer 333S/L Motherboard
I took out the HDD and put it into a toshiba laptop and formatted it and then loaded xp onto it. Starts fine in the Toshiba but not in the Dell.
1. Still asks if I want to fun windows 2000 or XP Pro
2. After choosing XP Pro it asks me for different safe modes
3. After trying all the options, the same thing happens each time. The computer shuts off and I start all over again.
What is different between the Toshiba and the Dell C400 that is stopping XP from running?
P.S. Have not loaded the Dell c400 drivers yet as the computer won't start
Its not gonna work, unfortunately. You cannot load it on a machine then take that drive out and put it on another. SOMETIMES this can work but only if the chipsets are the same or "similar" .. But what %'age of similiarity is required is ... well .. a mystery
