My good friend the network admin, just loaded WIN 2000 on my Compaq 4550, 4g HD (yeah it's old!!), pentium 2, 266mhz 64 ram.
The installation went fine - (so it seemed).
When it re-booted and was ready to start up, it got all the way to the Opening screen, where the progress bar on the bottom is supposed to fill in (where it says Windows is starting (or something to that effect) and then does absolutely nothing. It just hangs.
We tried reinstalling - still no good. It generated a report about compatibility issues, and it mentioned that my 'display driver' needed to be updated to be compatible with Win 2000 (I originally had 95 on this machine).
I know you probably need a hell of a lot more information, but does this sound familiar to anyone? Can anyone guess how I can get Windows 2000 to start on my machine?
Thanks for reading the post !!
