(bullet point) To set up windows XP on the selected item, press ENTER
(bullet point) To create a partition in the unpartioned space, press C
(bullet point) To delete the selected partition, Press D
Then a box with:
(there is no disk in this drive)
and the bottom of the page
ENTER=INSTALL D=DELETE PARTITION F3=QUIT
I press C, nothing happens then after i press another key the following Screen appears:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer
for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode
to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.
*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005, 0xF741BCFD, 0xF6FFD800, 0x00000000)
*** setupdd.sys - Address F741BCFD base at F73F200, DateStamp 3d6dd67f"
Yes i am attempting a clean install. I have not run a diagnostic on the hard drive (i dont even know what that means...sorry)
Thanks for your time
