Windows 2000 install trouble

More info required please.
Is the HDD disk on the HCL?
Have you tried installing directly from the CD?
Previous installations of any OS?
Processor, RAM, Video etc?

Something is trashing NTDETECT before you get a chance to complete the install so I suspect:

1. Faulty or non-standard HDD
2. Previous installation of ????
3. Bad boot/Installation disks (best bet)

I would start from scratch. Fdisk the hard drive. Then make new bootdisks, preferably from a different CD than the one your using now.

Good Luck

Tried that route but I did not get results. Will try with one more set of disks.

I have seen this error with the floppy disks. Use the CD (boot to the CD you have to enable this in the bios setup). Or use an image.

I had same problem with SCSI hard drive. I've modified TXTSETUP.SIF to load my drivers and everything went Ok.
