I recently bought a new computer, but since the bios is so new on it, most os’s don’t work unless they’re a very recent version.
Even though I’m a mac and linux guy at heart, I went the dark route and got a copy of xp.
But I’m having trouble installing it, after it goes through the file copying faze of the install, and reboots. When it trys to boot from the harddrive I get this error: Error loading operating system.
I did some google searching, and found that alot of people have had this problem, but have nto yet found a fix for it
Here’s my specs:
Abit NF7 S2G, Nforce2 ultra 400
Amd Athlon xp 2400
Nvidia Geforce FX 5700 ultra 128
2 60 gig maxtor ultra ATA/133
Only one of the harddrives is hooked up atm, just so that it doesn’t conflict with my linux install.
I spent about 3 straight hours trying to fix this last night, and 45 minutes this morning. And have been unable to get anywhere
And I’ve got a lan party with some friends coming up this afternoon, so I REALLY want to get it working for that.
So please, ANY help you guys can give, would be much appreciated.
