I got a dilemma here,





Trying to do a clean download of Windows 2000, I just bought a new HD for it. For some odd reason, the bios screen can detect it if I go into setup, but when I try the install from Windows.....it gives me the dreaded "Blue Screen" and says that Windows cannot find a drive with sufficient drive space.....I just got an 80GB HD....what gives?

try booting from a windows startup disk and format the drive, then attempt the windows install again

Man, common sense should have told me that after you make your partition, you have to format it for use.....but thanks for the heads-up anyway.
