When you install the new hard drive you need to pull out all adapter cards but the video. In the BIOS settings be sure to set video to pci or agp which ever appropriate. Motherboard drivers may also be required. Problem is that since drivers are notavailable windows is loading own and hardware is probably newer that Win95 Vxd drivers.

I think this is the way to reply to answer if not please let me know how. Thanks for answers but I have nothing connected to board except floppy,hard drive & CDrom. Integrated video. Old board therefore don't think drivers are applicable. No AGP Both drives I tried work in my other board and both are Socket 7. I agree something is interfering with installation but what?

I am wondering if this could be a faulty motherboard, I have tried installing many different (known working) sticks of RAM but the motherboard stills reads them all the same, Can't remember the reading but it does'nt correspond to any of the sticks I installed. What I can't understand is if this is right then why does it pass the post test???
