  1. Hello nice forum you guys have here :)

    Here is something i just got on EBAY!

    I wish to install Windows 2003 server on this system. So far I have

    Used the SmartStartCD 5.5 and installed the BIOS.
    I have set up the raid0 array and i have created a logical drive.
    I have chaged the boot order in the newly installed BIOS to go to CD first.

    When i place my Win 2K3 server cd in the drive i get a non system disk error
    I can place the same disc in my XP home machine and i get no trouble booting. The smartstartcd boots fine.

    Why is the windows CD not booting?

    Thanks for taking time reading my post

    The cd is probably not bootable.
