Now i'm supposed to boot with the provided utility CD so i can finish setup and format my drive, but when i hit F12 i don't have the option to boot from CD, but every other option is there.
my cdrom was working fine until i took out my old, defunct HD and put in this new one.
so i go back into setup and it says under boot order that my cd-rom isn't installed. so i figure that explains why i cannot boot from it, but i can't figure out why it isn't installed, or how i'm supposed to complete my new drive setup without being able to boot from CD.
so this is where i cry for help...
