So....anyone have a hammer handy? I'm piecing together a computer from parts that have been given to me, and everything was moving along fine until this morning. I installed the drives, pci cards, etc. I went to the BIOS, told it boot from CD-ROM as I was installing XP. The install of XP went great, but the problem lies in the way the system boots now. If I go into the BIOS and tell it to boot from the HDD, it wont. It recognizes the HDD in the BIOS, but won't boot directly from it. Heres the wierd part...if I turn the boot priority back to the CD-ROM and let it prompt me to "Press any button to boot from CD-ROM", but don't press any buttons, XP will load up fine. I've tried everything that comes to mind. New IDE ribbon, jumpers are in CS position, etc.... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
