So what kind of hardware are you installing on? (Dell optiplex 320, Homebuilt PC with Asus XXX Motherboard, HP whatever ? )

What type of Hard drives are in your system ? PATA, SATA ?

Can't help you, unless you help us out by providing enough information.

No need to apologize for your english, You do better than I would trying to speak your native language.
