I'm attempting to do a clean install of win 2k on to a new hard drive. At the installing devices portion of the setup, in the middle, it hangs and won't go anywhere. I get messages saying that there is a device installer error. I've also had messages saying that serial.sys can't be found. I have tried installing other OS, such as XP, and the same issue occurs with it. Does any one have any suggestions or words of wisdom?

mb: asus a7v
ram: 640 mb pc133
only video card, keyboard, cd rom, mouse attached.

Thanks.

that maybe a hardware problem,mostly concern about mb or RAM,because your RAM is 640mb.
