Have you tried another installation CD?

Have you performed a HD format with a Windows 98 boot disk?

    It looks like there might be bad sectors on the hard drive, causing it to freeze during install.

    With a Windows 98 bootable disk, boot to the command prompt. At the prompt, enter a command. Upon proceeding, answer Y for large hard disk support and confirm.

    Select 4 to delete active partitions. Delete the partition and create a new partition. You can select FAT as the primary type. Let the fdisk utility perform a format of the entire hard disk. Then attempt to install the OS again.

    If it fails again, I recommend you run a diagnostic on the hard drive to check it's integrity.

    Do you know the manufacturer of the hard drive?

Dear macrocks22 :
If you are using a PS2 connection for your keyboard and mouse you will need to reboot windows for it to see them. Its just random how it sees them or not.
Any version of windows earlier than windows XP with second edition update will have problems with anything related to USB. Its just hit and a miss if you are trying to use USB connections with windows earlier than XP with SP2.

Hope it helps, if it does don't forget to give the thumbs up.

Panasonic TOUGHBOOK CF-18 Took out HD to reload windows as it would not load but stuck at the safe / last known good config etc. Loaded XP onto HD via an ACER laptop and reinserted it into ToughBook -...


I think your actually having issues getting it to run on the toughbook because it uses different drivers for everything from the Acer computer. If you press F8 while booting up you can choose the option "Disable automatic restart (of system errors or something)". Then when the machine boots up you should get a blue screen giving you an error code like "IRQ_EQUAL_TO_OR_GREATER_X Error: 0x0000005f. You could try to see what the message is trying to tell you to resolve it but the error msg would likely point to the driver that its trying to load that's most likely different from the toughbook you have. I'd suggest getting an external cdrom/dvdrom and install windows from a disc onto the toughbooks hd while its in that toughbook machine.

I cant install windows xp because of... i dont know!


Here is what you should do, go to a computer store and buy a 40G HD. Try installing on that. It could be the size, but most likly not. Im going to guess and say take a look at the bottom of your reinstall disk. If it has any scratches, there is your problem. NTLDR is your boot sector on you HD.

Ntldr error on ibm intellistation z pro w/ xp pro


During the XP install, you will be given the chance to set up partitions on the drive. Blow them all out. Completely. Then recreate the partition and let XP install. I expect this will solve the nt loader issue. If, however, it does not, then use the recovery approach below to get the required loader files onto your boot partition.

  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "d." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy d:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy d:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.
