Hello all! I have finally purchased and physically installed my new hard drive I posted about in this thread
Right now I'm having a bit of a time installing Vista on it. I downloaded an ISO some time ago because I could not find the discs that came with our PC. I get through the copying files bit, (#1) and then part of (#2) until it stops and gives me this error code:
I tried cleaning off the disc and got a bit further with installation. As you can see from the other thread I'm installing onto an HP Pavilion. Does anyone have any familiarity with this error code? And/or any suggestions on what I could do to get things moving again? I've used the same disc to install Vista in the past with absolutely no problems.
OK. I have solved that problem. It was indeed a dirty disc, but I'm leaving the question up there in case it helps someone else with the same problem.
The problem I'm running into now, is that it says it cannot complete the install of Windows on my Hardware and it asks to restart the installation completion, but then tells me it won't work and I'm in an over and over again loop. Am I going to have to order something from HP or can this be fixed without going through that?
Thank you in advance!
