I was attempting to install Windows XP on a newly 120 gb Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 ATA133 8mb buffer hard drive, after the installation process formatted the drive with NTFS and copied the files, on the second reboot - right after the "Verifying DMI Pool Data" - the system display the error "Error loading operating system".
The following is my pc spec :
EPoX 8RDA+ Motherboard, AMD Athlon XP 1800, Kingston 256MB DDR x 2, Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 120GB ATA133 Hard Drive.
