New Hard Drive won't take a Windows Install
stevetag Feb-16-01 00:05 AM
I have a computer that was hung in Windows 98, let me reboot and kept hanging, I Formatted the hard drive and reinstalled.

Then, my office 2000 and antivirus programs would not work, I kept getting a message that stated the applications had to be installed first, but all the files had been installed.

Then different error messages kept arising, so, I replaced the hard drive and now that one is doing it too, every now and then I even get a error message that says that HIMEM could not load and that their may be faulty XMS memory in a certain module - any idea, I am ready to pull my hair out.

Thanks Larry, next time I won't be in such haste to throw the old hard drive out, I was afraid it was the memory but thankful you have confirmed.
