Compaq and other restore CDs usually are coded to only with with their boards.
What other OS do you have?
Four year old Presario upgraded 14 months ago with K7 Motherboard from PC Chips Athlon 2700 RAM=480 Win/ME. HD quit after 14 good months on new M'board so bought new Maxtor 120 and installed it. Put another old Maxtor 80 I had from a network box in as slave for later use. Maxtor formatting disc came with new HD and correctly identified both HD's, master and slave. Two cd Quickrestore arrived as ordered from Compaq since I had lost the original - Windows ME. First 3 times I ran Restore it gave "OS setup error" after only a few windows and gave no explanation. Then came error 108 - "partition doesn't end at end of cylinder". I hit a key and setup continued anyway. Finally got two bars showing installation progress that went to 100% and asked for second cd. Progress stopped and it said "contact vendor". Has anyone else had these problems? Each attempt yields a different result.
