Tried both 2000 adv. server and pro, and they both have the same two problems.
1. After rebooting, desktop comes up, but the machine locks up for approx. 5 seconds with the harddrive light on permanently. Then it shut's off for 1/2 a second, and then back on 3-4 times. Then the machine behaves normal for a while, but once in a while (when launching a program) it'll do it again. The machine locks up totally, i can move the mouse though until it's finished.
2. I have a Plextor 8/20 which keeps giving me ASPI error's. I downloaded latest drivers from both WIN2Kworld.com and adaptec, but neither helped the problem which is with both CDRwin and Easy CD Pro. The SCSI card is an old timer that came with my 5 year old HP 2040i burner. Is that the problem?
Intel P2/350 with 128MB ram, 55GB harddrive (boot drive = 27gb 7200rpm), Voodoo3 3500.
It is the FINAL (feb/17/2000) version of WIndows 2000.
Any input is more than welcome since this is keeping me from going further with the w2k deployment.
