Is the HHD recognized correctly in the system BIOS? Is your BOOT order set to CDROM then HDD? If so, have you partitioned and formatted the drive using the utility on the Win2000 cdrom...and number of partitions and FAT32 or NTFS format? Specific information about the HDD and mainboard would help...T

You might want to run a diagnostic on the drive to make sure it doesn't have bad sectors:
