Emachine T5026 XP 1+ gb ram 350 gb HDD (brand new) 160 gb HDD (came with system) Motherboard (no idea) This is my problem, when I bootup with the 160gb HDD, it gets as far as the windows logo and freezes. I install the new HDD and try to install windows on it and it downloads all the way until it say "starting windows", then it also freezes. I reboot the new harddrive and let it download until it ask me to hit F6 the hit F2 which I do, then it ask me to install the windows automated system recovery disk. I can not do that because my machine does not have a floppy disk drive, I do have a USB external floppy but the machine does not allow to direct it to that external drive. Can anyone advise me how to fix this problem or am I doomed to visit the geek guys?
