You may have read my obscure posting 'damsal in distress' where i was having trouble restoring Windows ME.
Story so far:
Took out a corrupt HDD, stuck in a new 40gb HDD, partioned it fine. Downloaded a boot disk from click here and installed it.. I am still being told that my CD ROM drive is E:\ but i have changed the prompt to F:\ typed setup
I now have some action!! Flashing lights, whirring noises, good vibes! However, that was an over an hour ago. Is that normal??
Is there a reg on there when its a new drive?,just wondered only thing on there will be what the floppy put on.Do you have the ME cd? can you change the boot order to cd in bios and boot straight from cd?
The boot disk is a floppy & i have ME operating system CD. I have previously changed the BIOS settings to boot from CD, but had no luck. So I changed them back.
I have had to turn off the set up process & go to work. I shall attempt to restart the setup again tonight & wait. Current waiting period is approx. 1 hour. I'll have more time this evening & I can place it out the way for a while. It's obviously doing something in that time...the system itslef has little power (p2 & 128 RAM) so it may take more time than i expect it to.
