Seagate Barracuda and WinXP
Posted on 2004-10-29
Well I bought a new Seagate Barracuda 200GB HD. Its my only disk, so im trying to install WinXp on it for the first time. Now, i have two problems. HD is recognized, but as a 136GB HD. From what i realize, this is not a big problem, and Sp1 should solve it?
The second one is more serious. After i enter BIOS, change first boot device to CD-ROM, and insert WinXp installation CD, installation begins, loads all the files necessary for it, and then stops and freezes. At this point in the bottom of the screen "Setup is starting Windows" is seen.
I've tried Seagate's Disk Wizard, but it did not change anything.
