Hi: I try to install windows XP in a new HP Pavilion computer. I dont have a computer right now as i am at home. At work the whole day I try to install windows XP on that machine. First i delete the partition and then create a new partition and then during installation XP gives me an error on harddisk on some address. Message is some thing like that "There is an error in your hard disk on address ...... please use chkdsk to check the viruses or any other problem in the harddisk" I try three times to install XP but it wont install. Then i try to install windows 2000 PRO it also gives me same error. Then i use the dos botable disk and create a new partition on harddisk and then format the harddisk. It format the harddisk without any error. Dont know why the windows are not going to install on the hard disk needs help.
