Install Windows 2000 on Latidude D400 - Have External CD/DVD

Hi ,

when i boot from a Windows 2000 CD ( I choose Boot Menu first ) it gets me as far as saying "Yes to install" Win 2k then gives me a "stop_inaccessible_boot drive".. or something to that effect...

I ran the Dell "first time" install some time ago and have Windows 2000 on the machine and ran a clean install , then when it reboots.. i select "ENTER" to install Win 2k new.. then it tells me if cant find the drive.. and to press F3 to exit...?

The drive and cd have tested ok as i can install no problem any other app... but want a clean install..

Any ideas?

Thanks

GA

I've run into the same problem. The issue was raised again on 12 Nov 2003, still without a response (see http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=latit_harddrive&message.id=6884&highlight=d400+2000#M6884).
