I have a POS (point of sale) computer that does not have a CDROM. It does have an external floppy drive that the BIOS can be set to boot from. I wanted to install Windows 2000 Pro on the built-in hard drive. I started by removing the POS hard drive and installing it in a laptop computer. I then set the BIOS to boot from the laptop's CDROM, inserted my W2K CD, and performed a full install (not upgrade) on this hard drive. After it was finished I removed the hard drive and installed it in my POS computer. The computer goes through the power-on-self-test (POST), says it is starting windows on a line at the bottom of the screen, and then the computer restarts. This cycle keeps on repeating itself without ever loading windows. Any suggestions on why this happening? Is it because the W2K install loaded drivers specific the laptop computer that are not compatible with the POS computer? If this method of loading W2K on a HD is not workable, any suggestions on how to do full install without a CDROM on the POS computer? The computer has USB, serial, parallel, and floppy drive ports. Thanks.
