Hello all,

Ive just built a new PC :-

Asus A78X Deluxe Nforce 2 mobo
Athlon 2100XP
Gainward GF4 Ti4200
256MB DDR PC2700 RAM
Western Digital 60GB 7200rpm HDD
LG CD-RW
350W PSU


The problems occur when I try to install W2000 Pro. Im using boot disks, and the installation gets through to disk 4 and I get an error message :-

DISK I/O Error 0002000

I have no idea what this means, but as far as I know, the floppies are OK, I used them successfully recently.

Ive tried different IDE cables, and ive even tried to install the OS using my old PC (which I wasnt sure would work anyway)

Any ideas?

First off, I'd boot from the CD to install, much faster! OK, that's out of the way. :)

Did you try booting with a DOS floppy, and see if you can FDISK the hard disk? It sounds like when Windows starts to access the hard disk, it chokes.

Thanks, it turned out to be faulty floppies again.

That means EVERY time I build a PC, i've had to make fresh boot disks:rolleyes:
