I've seen a similar thread for this problem, but it seemed more hardware and bios related than os so I'm creating a new thread.
I have a i-opener that's been running 98se for about 6 months with no problems. I just bought a larger hard drive and wanted to upgrade the os, so I loaded W2K on it (from a ThinkPad), put it in the machine.
Now here's the problem it won't boot. It goes throught the diagnostic screen ok, then the "Loading Windows 2000" thermometer comes up at the bottom of the screen, and once the thermometer reaches the end, it goes back and re-boots again. It'll do this indefinatly.
I'm unsure which version i-opener I have. Must be early, no goop, no cut pins, regular screws in the case. Could the problem be with installing the OS from the ThinkPad? I did this the first time with 98se and after spending a few minutes with the device manager, I got all of the conflicts sorted out and it ran perfect.
I just upgraded to 128k notebook ram and got a new bios from BadFlash within the last 2 weeks.
Does the sanDisk need to be disabled? Is my machine too old to run W2K? Please help.
