hello at all,
I m new here and i want to say that my english is not very good.
i tried to ask some members of different forums to help me in my mother language (german), but i was not able to get some good advices :-( .
I buyed a Dell Dimension 8300 Computer in ebay. The Seller was very nice and i think that he isnt a cheater. he means that he is not a computer freak but also that he doesnt have problems while installing windows xp.
I installed Windows XP, unfortunatly without installing the SCSI drivers.
The installing process was without any complications, but when i tried to boot windows, the computer starts again and there comes the screen "an error occured".
so i finally formate again the whole system .
by pressing f6 i wanted to load the drivers for the scsi controller. so win xp recognized the drivers, without problems.
but when i starts to copy the files for the installation , there comes the following error: "could not load fasttx2.sys".
i used the orginial driver floppy disk. without succes.
then i load the drivers from the internet homepage, without succes.
i am really desperate - please help me !!!
If its important:
The HDDs are two Western Digital WD1200JD and the controller is a Promise FastTrak Serial ATA Raid Controller !
