Ok, I am making progess, but still not there..
Firstly, thanks Steven72555, you are on to something. I seem to be getting on far better with the 500GB HDD that I was with the 74GB HDD. After installing the drivers
from a seperate disk, it does now give me the error of unable to install as the drive is going to fail at some point... Bad times, but would rather know now I guess.
Ok, so, I have removed the other HDD from the mobo. So, I now only have connected 1x500GB HDD, this is made of 3 partitions. I am now trying to install to the 3rd Partition.
So, here is what I am doing.
Boot from Windows Disk - Fine
Loads up each time - Fine
Select Language, confirm T&C - Fine
List correct HDDs - Fine
Load Drivers from sep CD - Fine
Then error - Windows cnt install here - Swap back to Windows disk, refresh - Fine
3rd Partition has been selected as Logical - No Good
Format 3rd Partition - No Good
Delete 3rd Partition - No Good
Reboot, try above again - No Good
Just keep getting the error - Cant see/make a system partition. WTH?! I have been on this for 28hrs, getting closer. Is it easier if I just go and buy a new HDD and install to single HDD with no partitions or anything?
Or is there just a final step that I am missing?!
