ok i know there is a harddive in my computer but when it boots up and i go into bios. i try to detect it but it's not there. it detects the cd burner when its hooked up to the same place as the harddrive was , with th same cord also, it will detect cd burners and stuff but not harddrives. i've also tried differnt harddrives. also when i let it boot up it says no boot record on ide , cd , or floppy even though a mandrake 10.1 install cd is in the cd drive. do i have to do something to make it detect the mandrake cd. it's searching for the boot record so maybe it doesn't want to see mandrake. but any help would be usefull. Thanks.
