i am going to do the install on a new machine with absolutely no OS. will make a small video and put it on youtube and send you the link.
you can follow the instructions and see if that changes your situation and if not then i will send you a hdd with image burned on it. you just pay the shipping or if there is some way i can send the shipment as “collect on delivery”. dont worry about the cost of the hdd since i have so many of them.
wait for me to send you a video link around this weekend.
alternatively PM me your IM (YAHOO, MSN, AIM) and i can walk you through into the steps..
will help anyway i can.
