Re: dell mediadirect 3.5 error

Did you start with the media direct disk first(load it before loading the OS disk)?...

Then after loading the OS disk,did you load media direct disk again,this time in windows state?...

Other reason,did you system ship with media direct 3.5,or the newer version?...

Re: dell mediadirect 3.5 error

Go with my first reply,

1)Load the Media Direct Cd (boot from disk).This will install and set all of the partitions.

2)Load the OS disk(boot from disk)

3)Log onto windows and get it set up,now load the Media direct disk again(in windows)this will install the application itself.
