Installing new hard drive to replace dead one and I dunno what I am doing.
Okay, forget everything you read, I forgot to put in the power cord. I restarted the computer and it found the hard drive and I tried to boot from the same windows cd but now its running really slow and is stuck at a black screen after checking the system data. This shouldn't happen with a 2.5ghz dual core and 2 gigs of ram.
when there was no hard drive powered, the installation went wicked fast and got to the part where windows looks for hard drives in no time at all. Now it is taking much longer to go from the motherboard splash screen to the energy star and bios stuff. Then it sits at lines of code for a while and spools and then sits at the boot from hard drive for a while.
After it scans the system configuration it, take a long while and stay black.
