Ok so one problem was the ATA drive I had to do this stupid setup again to get it to read it which I had to ndo before so now it could read the hard drive so I did an windows repair install that got it working but not really first it was extremly slow at start up and second the network wasnt working at all so no internet access from that computer atall I Tried everthing to get the network working and it wouldnt budge so I think theres something majorly wrong with the computer so dl service pack 2 and put it on an CD to the new comp and it screwed it up even more now have no idea what to do cept for reformating? There seems to be something majorly screwed up with windows pro ed or the hardware but I doupt its the hardware any help...
Make sure the hardware is on the MS Hardware Compatibility List (HCL). One main problem is SP2. I have heard lots of people having problem with it. On MS's website they even have a list of apps that do not work right after installing SP2.
You will have to do a reinstall just to get rid of SP2. The symptoms also make me consider bad RAM. download a memory tester and see what you find. I have had cases of this same situation and the culprit was bad RAM.
