Are you trying to set the machine up clean?
If so, let me know, and I'll post complete instructions for how to do it.
To save time in solving your problem, it will be helpful to know more about your computer.
Please list the components of your system that might apply.
(Motherboard, CPU, RAM, Hard Drive(s), CD-ROM, Soundcard, etc.)
Please post your autoexec.bat & config.sys files
Also, what version of Windows you are installing.
Regards,
Ralph

Were there any disks with the Machine to do with the
motherboard?  My home machine has a similar problem, and unless I disconnect the CD-ROM, then install the drivers from the disk, I will find that access to both the H/D, and the CD-Rom is 'lost'... Leading to the O/S not loading up properly

As400dude,

Well you can do this, in Windows directory type this (do this in DOS Prompt)

1) "ATTRIB SYSTEM.DAT -R -H -S" and "ATTRIB SYSTEM.DA0 -R -H -S"..... copy SYSTEM.DA0 to SYSTEM.DAT then "ATTRIB SYSTEM.DAT -R -H -S" and "ATTRIB SYSTEM.DA0 -R -H -S"

2) "ATTRIB USER.DAT -R -H -S" and "ATTRIB USER.DA0 -R -H -S"..... copy USER.DA0 to USER.DAT then "ATTRIB USER.DAT -R -H -S" and "ATTRIB USER.DA0 -R -H -S"

This is to restore back your previous registry that windows has change.

Good luck :-)
