250 gb HDD sata

Do you have an appropriate SATA driver integrated?

Or can you set it in BIOS the internal disk in "IDE emulation mode" (or similar setting)?

(though normally the symptoms would be that no disk is found :unsure:)

Which SP is that Wndows 2000?

Have you enabled 48 bit LBA?

Let's wait if some other member has an idea of what the issues could be (maybe too faster processo/too much RAM)? :w00t:

Thanks for the reply XD Yes I have tried to set the internal disk in "IDE emulation mode" but it didn't work :(

It's the SP4 ^^

How can enable 48 bit LBA?

p.s: Are you an italian too?

Then it is possible that is the HD size, see below.

Good. :)

Of course not :w00t: , I am from Vulcan spock-spock-star-trek-smiley-emoticon-000554-facebook.gif, but I like the white, red and green. :whistle:

Sure I am from Italy :yes: , near Florence.

Yep, but that is simply a black screen with a cursor (possibly flashing) in the top left corner.

What happens first?

Try describing the steps you go through before that.

Use this (it is XP related, but the 2K setup is very similar) as a reference:

If that was on reboot, it usually means a corrupted MBR on your HDD.

Probably a bad optical drive or corrupted MBR.

If it has an InsydeH20 BIOS, that's your problem. Don't expect Windows 2000 on netbooks or laptops with that horrid BIOS, unless in a VM.
