Sounds like you need to format the hard drive then try a new install

SOURCE: computer wont install windows strange problems ensue.

are you pressing any key to boot from the cd when you get that message??

after windows finishes copying all the installation files during the first stage (dos mode) of the os installation you get a reboot, after the reboot, you should get that message that says press any key to boot from the cd, DON'T PRESS ANY KEY (or you will start again), leave it cd in.. just don't press any key... hopefully the installation process will continue on it's own onto the next stage (graphical mode).

if the computer just goes back to the dos mode without you pressing anything the problem may actually be a real problem and it may require further troubleshooting..

see how that goes with the first suggestion and post back if needed.

good luck

SOURCE: I have an HP 513n, currently running Windows XP

Yes. Install the hard-drive, and use Windows XP to "partition" and "format" the second disk-drive.

When installing Windows 7, be sure to "point" the installer to the drive-letter of the second disk-drive.

Windows 7 will create a "dual-boot" environment.

SOURCE: compaq SR1650NX HARD DRIVE MESSED UP RECOVERY DISK

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

SOURCE: I just installed a hard drive that I know works

Hi there,

If your HDD is being detected it is good. You did the right thing. There is a possibility that it could be the power supply. It is not providing enough power so the system reboots. If you have 2 HDD's connected try removing one of them. If your pc is connected to a power strip or a surge protector, try connecting it directly to the wall outlet.

How do i connect my hp deskjet f380 to my hp workstation xw4100

Did you load the printer drivers? Simply connecting a printer to the machine will not get it to operate. Each printer comes with software that must be installed to get the printer to work the computer. If you need drivers, you can go to the HP website support and download them.

Hi, I am having a HP workstation XW4100 Base unit previously i was using Linux on this machine now want to change the OS has Windows XP with SP2

You need a Windows XP installation disk and the product installation code.
When you boot up with the Windows installation CD, you will be given an option to delete the existing partition, Do this and then create a new partition, then do a NTSF format NOT a quick NTSF format then complete the installation.
After you install SP2 then install SP3, this is the latest service pack and corrects some bugs.

BLUE SCREEN ON HP WORKSTATION WHEN I TRY TO UPGRADE TO 64 BIT XP PRO

Are you trying to do a fresh install? or upgrade from another operating system? Generally have to do a fresh install when going from 32 bit version of xp to 64 bit. IF you have more than 4 GB of ram installed, you may have to remove some, then install 64 bit XP Pro, then install your ram after. (this is a known problem with some machines and 64 bit xp) IF this is none of the above?
Please add a comment with more information as per your BSOD. This way I can identify with you what it is the system does not like
