Hi, I need a little help, Ther's this computer I am working on. It has an AMD Duron 1200 processor, 96 MB DDR RAM, Maxtor DiamondPlus 80 GB HDD, SiS integrated video card, TPeople CD ROM drive. It runs Windows 98 SE. Recently it developed problems, durin booting it displays errors messages about msnp32.dll(whatever that is). I want to install Windows XP Professinal SP 2 but I can't because both the floppy and CD drives are ".. is not accessible. Device Is not ready" . Could the OS be the culprit? Anyone know the way to get around this? I replaced the Maxtor drive with a Western Digital WD200 20 GB drive, but the computer doesn't boot. It displays:"Searching For Master Boot Record on SCSI...Not Found. Insert floppy disk and press any key". In the BIOS setup, there's no hard disk present in the "Select Boot Order" list, only the CD and floppy. I removed the WD200 and reinstalled the Maxtor. This time it displays something about "secondary slave" and the Master Boot Record not being found just like in the WD200 drive. Now I can't even get past the "Searching For Master Boot Record on SCSI...Not Found. Insert floppy disk and press any key". Can anyone help me out? Please? Sorry for the long thread.
