    Did you setup your account as an administrator account? Or limited account? What kind of error indication do you see?

    First of all, when I installed windows on the new hard drive windows would normally ask for at least one name, which it didn't do, so no name was entered..

    by one name, do you mean user name or computer name? Also, is this an OEM disk (original equipment manufacturer) or a copy?
