I have some OPtiplex 780 desktop computers we are trying to set up.. I am trying to place the Zen partition on the hard drive then install windows XP in the 2nd partition.. If I fdisk the hard drive and install the zen partition then try to install windows, windows setup starts and says "setup is inspecting the hardware" and the screen goes blank and the Hard Drive activity light stays on solid and setup never gets any further.. If I blow away the zen partition and install windows without the zen partition, the windows setup runs just fine..
I have been playing around with the sata operation mode in bios as well.. anybody have any ideas on what the bios settings should be for this scenario ?? or maybe no one uses the zen partition on the Hard drive ??
Thanks in advance
