windows install error message

  22715240 09:08 07 Nov 2004

I have just installed a brand new hard drive. Formatted it, but am unable to install Windows on it. Setup says there is either a cached or compressed area on it (there certainly isn't to my knowledge) but on the installation setup I get an error message SU-0013 and install stops. Any help please?

is it a ATA drive by any chance?

If it is you have to load the drivers for it

What version of Windows, and how did you format the hard drive?

Thanks for the responses. It is an ATA/IDE, (no drivers came with it). I did try to put on Windows 95, as it was the only full version (not upgrade) I had. Then I tried XP but it would just not entertain that. The drive does act okay as a slave under ME.

From Microsoft:

"You may receive this error message if you install Windows 95 over Windows 95 OSR2 and you are using the FAT32 file system on your hard disk. You may also receive this error message if you are running EZ Drive and you have the Floppy Boot Protection option enabled in EZ Drive. To resolve this behavior, disable the Floppy Boot Protection option in EZ Drive." click here

If you have a computer that had Windows 95, it is very likely that the specification is too low for Windows XP. Can you give us more details about your computer.
