I am installing a sony cd-r/rw, the comp matches all specifications, i have tried to install it as slave with the original cd-rom as master/ replaced the cd-rom and installed as master.
when booting up it is recognised in the bios at the beggining but when windows installs it freezes when the dialog box "windows updating hardware" box appears and in the task box it comes up as unresponsive
OS system is ME
thanks in anticipation and happy new year
