    Hi help or advise pls would be greatly appreciated

    OK swapping / upgrade of HDD for a friend.
    Old Celeron 500 on Intel board.

    Added a Ram stick, then

    copied their 4G old drive (with Drive Image) onto a new 20G Seagate drive. All OK
    remove old drive and make new one master OK
    system boots and goes into W2K as usual.
    system starts loading with the usual b&w screen with progress bar across the bottom - OK
    Then - nothing
    System restarts the whole boot
    Just keeps going around in circles never actually booting or any thing
    Drive is recognised and shows the correct size
    System counts down the ram memory and so on

    I am at a loss!
    If i havent given enough detail let me know
    Otherwise i would greatly appreciate some advice


    OK so my signature is lame - I can live with it!

    Win2k does not like being moved to a different HDD. You basically need to install 2k on that disk for it to work. That or Norton Ghost may work---not sure, since I don't use it.
