Okay, this is elementary, but I've forgotten some pretty basic things before.

1. You've cleared the RTC?

2. Made sure you have the latest bios copy in it?

3. Gone into set up and set the computer to boot from the DVD before the hard drive? (If it's set to still boot from the hard drive first, it won't boot up)

4. Made sure the drives are properly defined?

By the way, does NT 4.0 run on Fat 32 or NTSC?

You don't happen to have a master/slave problem the way your drives are set up do you? Just trying to think of anything that might foul the install.

I think it sounds more like a hard drive problem with the way it is set up rather than the motherboard. I hope that is the case. Let me know how it goes.

Good day, i have a laptop that i purchased with Ubuntu 12.04 pre-installed i now wish to change to win 8.1 but i dont know how to do it please assist, ive tried everything i could think of


My Suggestion would be to stick with Ubuntu. Windows 8.1 will be much slower on the same computer.

However, if you do really need Windows, my suggestion would be do run it under Ubuntu using VirtualBox (free) and then install the Extension pack which you can download from the Tools menu, when you have your OS running. This then gives you full screen. For your communications, make sure that your network adapter has been set to 'Bridged'

I have two operating systems on my hard drive.


Hi,

You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.

Prob with compaq motherboard


Hi,

My name is Vikram Kumar Thumu, I have seen your issue and would like to provide my solution on the issue...

Well, this is an issue that could happen with failure of Hard Disk Drive or Mother board type that you are using..

I think, this is to do with Motherboard specifications, since few Mother boards type or model will not support for Lagecy OS like WINDOWS 95/98.

Hence you to need to check from that point.

I request you to let me know the more information like Computer Model number and S/n and P/n number so that can research on the issue and provide you more information.

if you have any queries please mail at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com, I'll be glad to assist you..


Thank you.

Bye,
Vikram Kumar Thumu.
