    4"Phantom " drives show up when I try to load Windows
    « on: March 13, 2012, 04:00:41 PM »
      I am trying to get an old donated E-machines going again and I find that I  cannot load windows without it showing that there are 4 extra drives . I get this message when windows setup is asking whitch drive to install to.
    If I let windows install , it labels my C drive as H, and shows 4 removable drives.
    I have pulled all the memory out of this computer and replaced it with different memory.
    I have tryed two different hard drives.
    I have removed the cmos jumper to clear it, even removed the battery .
    I build, repair and upgrade computers then give them to school kids who do not have computer access at home, and have been doing this for several years,so I thought I had about seen it all --- BUT-- I am calling for help on this one!

    You need to disconnect the card reader before installing Windows.
