  1. Note: I am not seeing Hard Drive (HDD) under Main, when I login safe mode, Under boot hard drive is there

    After coping files it ask to take out CD from the drive. Reboots and display the following message:
    Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware.
    Please check the windws documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional info.

    Do not select the "Quick" partition process.
    Select the full partition setup. This can take 30 to 90 minutes depending upon the size of your drive.
