but does the BIOS recognise the hard disk as a boot device?
Just a thought.
After installing components and turning system on I set the cmos time and date and went through default bios. Power was lost. Now when powered up it displays the usual process then Ask that for a disk to reboot be inserted, which I don't have. Nor will it accept windows xp disc or any other disc. I tried reseting cmos by removing battery and move jumpers, still acts the same. Help me obi won kenobi, your my only hope!
