Now, when I checked everything I had enough chip to support the darn thing I installed and I had enough harddrive too, So where did it go?

The instructions indicate that it gets INSTALLED into a harddrive;

It is not there; that leaves the chip fields;

It aint there either; so is it in the screen?

That title bar and the other fifty or sixty of them don't match what's on the box and it don't work;

I'm part of a LAN, Its part of a NET, which is part of a net too';

My search thingee says that the IP's it found do not match anything it found in the nets so far, ben' searching for thirty minutes now;

'Gads' you don't think its been installed in the web somewhere do you? I remember the last time that I did an INSTALL it was in someone at homes computer somehow, when I did the .exe it blew his stuff clean out of his computer and we had only the one INSTALL legally and it cost us LOTS to get another copy.

So the question is: When you INSTALL do you know for a fact where you are installing to on these worn out pieces of equipmentand how do you assure that it is so?

I don?t see or heard something like this. But if you want to be sure that the installation go to your HDD, disconnect from network before installing.

You can always chose the Custom Install Option and set where any software is installed to. That way if it doesn't work you at least know where it has been installed to and where to start looking.

I'm sure that this is an error in translation but I take it that you mean by "Chip" the CPU which doesn't load any programs directly into it rather it passes the data to RAM or the HDD to install the program. Similarly RAM is volatile so it actually doesn't store any data in only holds it until it can be passed to a HDD for storage so everything eventually ends up on a HDD of some kind and by default should end up in the Programs Files Folder on an XP computer and then in its own sub folder once it is installed unless you have chosen to place in in a different place.

Also remember that this is a volunteer section and it is only polite to close off questions when you have an answer that works for you and rate those which are no help.

The answer is obvious

The installation was on the sub-system BIOS. That?s both good and bad, however. The hard drive actually becomes the slave BIOS, on the secondary channel, of course, and the sub-system BIOS is the master BIOS, but it?s on the primary channel. And therein lies the confusion. I think your system was seeing one, and not the other. But you can switch on the fly, and that?s the nice thing. You can have it the way you thought you didn?t want it, or you can have it just the opposite. That?s a great feature of that kind of installation. But you have to know what to look for.

I hope this helped.
