I've just spent the past two weeks installing, formatting, partitioning and reinstalling Windows onto my computer. Why you ask? For some strange reason every time I tried to install onto the primary partition of my application drive it would return multiple errors for no apparent reason. The only reason I was able to install an (as of yet) error free installation is that I accidentally discovered that when I install XP onto a secondary partition on the hard drive (IE: partition D:\ or E:\), it boots without error. Any time I would install onto the primary partition it would hang every other boot. I ran several diagnostics at the highest settings with no issues. :shock: For the longest time, I just put up with it. Finally the system was rendered unbootable. I tried backing up from an image but of course that just put me in the same situation I was before the system became unrecoverable. Two weeks later, I can finally boot without issues. Why do I punish myself like this? I must be some sort of masochist. :lol: If it matters at all: 2 Seagate 150 gig drives(1 for system. 1 for loops and samples.) 1 Seagate 320 gig drive (audio only) Amd Athlon 3600 X2 64bit capable. Asus M2V-MX 2 Gigs Kingston DDR2 667 RAM. Yeah it's an older CPU but it's not slow and it runs PT8 just fine when it works.
