Am trying to reinstall winxp home. I have no partitions set up. ie - empty. I have not been able to install winxp home from the cd, so i am using a win98 boot disk.
Here's what I've done:
Create partition. Create Primary DOS partition.
Now it starts verifying drive integrity. It goes to 12%, then goes back to 0% where it stays, sometimes increasing again to 2% or 12%.
So i switch the machine off. Speaking with my manufacturer, i type c:/, and it comes up (which I'm told means there IS a partition). But I viewed ALL the partition information and it clearly shows NO partitions.
And I'm not sure why I have to boot from win98 boot disk. The WInxp cd creates the NTFS RAW partition, then formats it, but then it can't copy some files from 95% onwards.
I've cleaned the disk and cdrom etc, and still the same results.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
