Cannot install OS to hard drive
Posted on 2006-03-20
Hello good folks,
After a system meltdown i am trying to install xp on a brand new seagate ATA100 drive.
I can boot from the XP disk, partition and format but when the computer reboots for the first time i get an error message:
A disk read error occured
Ctrl + alt + del to reboot.
Any ideas to throw my way so i can first install the new drive and then recover the info from the old dead drive?
When i return home i will run the seagate disk install wizard from their site to check for error although iw ould assume that the xp install disk checks for errors before writing to the new drive.
