Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
This is on a new computer with only WinRAR and a driver(Marvel ?????) for my ethernet port on it.
I recently installed XP Service Pack 2 on my computer which has XP Home Edition on it. When it restarted it said that something happened and gave me the choice on how to start up. If I choose normally or last known good configuration then it goes until the screen that says WINDOWS XP and then restarts. It will start in safe mode, which I did and uninstalled the SP2 and then the computer started fine. I tried reinstalling it and the same thing happened again. I need the service pack so the computer will recognize my two 300 Gb harddrives (it says they are only 128 right now). What do I do. Thanks to anybody who takes the time to write a response.
1, the problem can be resolved repair, reinstalling windows.
Boot from the windows Os cd , Press Enter on the first prompt, Accept the liscense agreemt by pressing F8 and press R on the third screen to repair windows.
You also told that the hdds that you are istalling are 300GB each,in some cases you need to install the hdd drivers to get them to recoganise them correctly . The same is given by the manufacturer on a CD.
