I dont know if anybody had this problem, but hope somebody can help me.

When i am installing Win2k i get to about 90% of copying files to hard drive (this is on dos) and get a blue screen saying error found and it tells me to turn off shadowing and caching. I turned off shadowing but i dont know what it means by turning off the cache. So i tryed again and keeps saying the same message and this is really frustrating me. Can anybody help me???
Are you installing w2k in a ATA100 hd in the ATA controller???
W2K has problems to detect the promise ATA100 from the mobo, so conect your hardrive to the normal ide port and then install w2k. No problems any more.

A7V duron 650@850 1,6V orbital heatsink
Also problems installing in Ata100 W2k
Now everything Ok. E
Enjoy the overclocking, bye
I am using the normal primary IDE port to install it and using the a 1ghz athlon. CPU is not overclocked to make sure it gives me no error regarding oveclocking problems like overheating during installation.
