A case like this could easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Because you need to clear the HDD via a complete reformat, then try to install Windows. Not the answer you're looking for?

I thought I got a bad bunch of bad cd's or a couple of defective drives but when put in my Compaq workstation(poineer DVD rom) they read fine.
