okay, I dont have my new pc wit me so I cant test stuff. but my cousin told them that when trying to install xp, the hdd wont get recognized. now from what it says in the manual, blue goes to mobo, grey goes to master, and black goes to slave. well I think for all of them, I attached black to the master cd-rom and on another I installed a black to the master hdd. well the cd-rom drive works and gets recognized even though its set on master and its on the slave cable. but the hdd is on master and it doesnt get recognized. is this the problem why it wont get recognized or is something else wrong? could the mobo be faulty or the hdd?
o and on the mobo, there is an ide connector and two raid ones. I connected the cd-rom to the ide and the hdd to the raid one. the manual says it is defaulted as ide (the raid). i just sent the mobo in for repair cuz it wouldnt start up....i hope its not faulty. o and i have a 530j processor and an asus p5gdc delux mobo (the one without the video card). crucial pc3200 512ddr memory. a 500watt psu.
