Hello brunell180 =)

While installing are u doing a Quick Format of hard drive, or a Full Format..... try a Full Format, it will take some time but will format the drive compeltely...... check if it can work or not ??

tell me is it a single drive or have partitions, and if it has, then have u data on them right now ??
what im thinking is to use fdisk and then delete all current partitions then recreate them, format them with FAT32...
and then run the XP setup to format it in NTFS and install XP.... something is going wrong with the hard drive :-?

>> the hard drive tested ok

nah nahhhhhh i was not talking abt a "damage"
what i was thinking, is that something has gone with the partitions or the boot sectors,,,, and deleteing and recreating partitions can rearrange them...... worth a try if there is not the problem of data loss :)

yeah,,,,,, and from fdsik, u knwo the standard win98\Me startup floppies >> www.bootdisk.com
using fdsik u can delete and recreate the partitions..... and then as fdisk doesn't support NTFS, so when u format the partitions it will be formatted using FAT32.... and after ding that when u boot with XP CD and format u can choose NTFS to format..... means double duty =|

the drive is not a NEW one.... right ??
