Hi Every1!! guess what?bad news!! i just got this Samsung SP0411C S-ATA 40gb hdd. i did the partitioning by "bootiting", (5gb-f32 + 10gb-ntfs + 23gb-fat32) i have old samsung 40gb 7200 hdd(on IDE1) the new hdd works fine as a slave disk now the problem is when i try to install windows98 or windows ME(making the sata hdd primary and removing old hdd), the setup runs fine, under the hardware search wizard(after first restart), it detects the devices and asks for reboot(second). Now during the startup logo, the system hangs. if i restart, i am taken to the boot selection menu(normal/safe mode). selecting safe mode, the computer works fine. i have tried installing 98/me from many different cd's what could be the problem? My sys... intel P4, Mercury 865gv, 256mb ddr, win 98/xp on old hdd works fine(installed using same cd's) note: no jumpers were given to me with the hdd. attached: BIOS setup screenshots also: i am sending this "SOS" from the old hdd, on the same machine.
