Yes, I would suggest that you run setup.exe from the Windows CD. This should do an over the top installation.

Have checked date and time in BIOS correct Have disabled virus check and level 1 and 2 cache in BIOS none of the other errors seem to apply as I know motherboard etc is OK as it works with the backup drive.

Still no joy just a very slow install which stopped at 65% Am going to check hard drive jumpers and not save previous windows installation on install will reenable cache

Am having big problems tried to reset system as before with small drive as main and old drive as second drive but unable to get into windows system wont seem to boot properly
