Hi,

I'm trying to install Windows 2000 on a HP Mini 2133. The first part of the installation worked well, but when the second part starts, the display shows:

2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
2 (HEX:0x2)
Error loading operating system

And nothing happens.

By the way, previously this netbook had installed Xubuntu, but before I install Windows 2000, I ran Gparted and formated the hard drive.

Thanks!

Can you delete all partitions and create new ones, while in Text mode?
For the Second part you may also try booting from the internal disk, instead of the USB one.

I guess you used WinSetupFromUSB, which version?

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB

I tried booting the second part from the internal disk, but says the same:

Error loading operating system

I used WinSetupFromUSB, the last beta version (1.0 beta7)

And when i try to delete and create new partitions in text mode, the formatting process stuck at 4%.

Thanks!

thats very weird on the formatting process...
does it always stucks at 4%? then for me looks a problem with hdd? maybe try with original cd and see if same problem occurs or run hdd check

btw. i never use the second part on the bootmenu, i just boot normally from internal disk

I'd look for issues with the hard disk. Try to delete all partitions with say PartedPagic, do not create new ones. Try again creating them from Text mode.
Test the hard disk with tool from its manufacturer.
The issue doesn't seem to have anything to do with the fact that it's install from USB.

It seems the problem is, indeed, the hard drive. Or maybe the netbook.

I dismounted the drive from the netbook and connected it to other PC. Then I installed Windows 2000 in the hard drive and everything worked well. But, when i reconnect the hard drive to the netbook, the screen shows the same: "Error loading operating system".

Of course, the problem seems to have no relation with WinSetupFromUSB :(

Thanks anyway!

How large is the hard drive?
Does XP SP3 behave the same way on this laptop? You'd have to delete all partitions and create new ones.

Here are several other reports for the same problem on this laptop:
