Did you go forwards/backwards during the install process?

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2001-04-02 15:26:00 UTC
No. It seemed not a bug. Finally I installed it after I changed the parameters 
of the hard disk and performed a low-level format. There used to be win 2000 
installed on it.
The parameters are:
Capacity: 8431 MB
C: 1025
H: 255
Sector: 63
But the system can recognize only 2 GB of the second HD (8.4 GB).
