I have seen/read what your refering too and that is what I want to do. New problem though. i reset the CMOS and now the mb detected the hd as primary drive. But I can't get the cd-rom to work. I know it has power but it's not loading the xp cd at all, no response. I don't rember seening it in the bios settings, should it show up there?
Any idea? Anyone, I know its something stupid that I've overlooked. Thanks again.
PS. I'm beginning to wonder if I have a power problem, I tried to boot from the windows cd again and I got that blue line that runs across the bottom of the screen and then nothing. It's like it's trying to load but can't. I have replaced the hd from a 30 to 80 gig and added the newer mb and processor, but forgot to add a bigger power supply. It's got a 180 watt power suppy, and a have a 400 watt ordered (as an after thought)but won't get it till Tuesday. I'm hoping that it but I'll let you know. I guess I'm learning the hard way about hardware huh!!!
