GIS it, you'll see. The capacitor is literally expanded, it bulges outward. This is a strong sign that the magic smoke has escaped.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I was strongly agreeing with you, sorry if that's didn't come out right.

90% of the time, something isn't plugged in. No matter how much experience you have or how many builds you've done.

comment Is there an alternative to Ghost peer to peer disk cloning?
Why do you want to do this? There might be some better solution you haven't come across yet, depending on why you need to clone disks over the network without making images.

comment Computer loads BIOS, but won't load OS
Does the PSU have one of those 4-pin connectors? It's probably hanging off the 20-pin connector if there is one, that goes into the last 4 pins on the mobo. Can you boot from anything? For example, could you boot from an install CD or live USB key?

Glad I could help. Would you vote up anything that helped you in the other thread and close this as a duplicate of the other question?

I might have found the answer, see the link I posted in my edit above. It may be the new hard driver after all.

vga.sys is a video driver, NDProxy is a network driver. Since you can see the screen, vga.sys probably isn't the problem. Can you boot into Safe Mode (hold F8 at Windows boot)? I'm not sure how far along you are in the installation process. If that doesn't work, I might have to tap out - I'm pretty much stumped, I've never seen something like this before with a fresh install.

Is the monitor working and plugged in? 9 times out of 10, it's something unplugged.

The size of the disk shouldn't matter. If it did anything, it would cause activation to fail - not something like this. Can you post the actual error message that appears, or the error code?

Very strange. You've confirmed that the iPhone can access the ftp server from outside the network?

comment Elevated permissions and disabled UAC
You're right, of course - UAC isn't a big deal if you're a savvy user. It does help a little, though, even for power users.
