How come my computer turns off while I am installing Windows 8? 

by on December 30, 2012

Q: I recently assembled a new computer, and today, tried to install Windows 8. It went through all of the steps, and then installed devices. Finally, the screen went to this: http://i.imgur.com/llICq.png . While on that screen, my computer completely turned off. I tried again, and saw that the previous hard drive partition made during the first install attempt was still there. I tried to make a new partition, and went through the installation process again, but got the same ending.

How come Windows tells me I have a disk hardware configuration problem after deleting an old partition? 

by on January 16, 2011

Q: I deleted my old partition, made a new one and am now trying to reinstall XP on it. Thing is it got to 100% then froze and stayed like that over night… Now when the disk tries to boot it gives me this error…

Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware. Please check the Windows documentation about hardware dish configuration and your hardware
reference manuals for additional information.
