I just installed a CD burner on my other computer. Now it won't boot. It goes to the black screen and says "insert BOOT diskette in A". I think. Something like that. Any suggestions?

how is the burner connected - on the same cable as the hard drive?

if so, is the burner jumpered as a slave?

look at the cable connections. the red stripe on the ribbon cable should be adjacent to the red wire on the power cable.

It's internal. "LiteOn" brand. It's connected to the CD-ROM drive via that really think strip, I forget what it's called. The CD-ROM drive is in turn hooked up to the motherboard I guess.
