Thinkpad t20 trouble installing operating system
\015 Computer chased and windows would not run so i assumed it was the hard drive. i replaced the hard drive and tried to install xp and it will get to the point where it says windows is opening but dose nothing i have also tried to install several versions of linex nothing is working. Do i need to format the new disk? any help would be greatly appericated.\015
Three reasons why its not making it. One is a faulty hard drive, and even though you bought a new one it can still be faulty. Two is your Windows XP Disc is damaged but the most likely one is that your motherboards slot for the hard drive and/or more are faulty and is not working well. Run XP and choose 'Format Drive' and Install two partitions, one C Drive and D Drive giving each equal amounts and installing NTFS on one part and FAT32 on the other and see which one runs the best. If both fail, Replace your Hard Drive with the origional one where windows was shot and Format and do the same things as above with the partitions and NTFS and FAT32. If again it fails borrow another hard drive and again do the same things and again if it fails. Also since you said its difficult to make it to the part for partitions replace your CD Drive if the CD looks good and re run the boot disc. If all fails, replace your motherboard and give it all another go
