Yea- I never built before. So I got everything together and I powered up into BIOS to make sure everything came on and to change the settings that I know about. so now what? Here is where all of the online guides get really vauge. they just assume that we *****s know exactly what to do next. I have Win XP w/SE disk. do I just shove it in and hope for the best? I know there is something that I have to do with drivers for my SATA HD (in my Sig.) but how and what is a mystery. when i bought the HD from newegg, that is all i got... the HD and Bubblewrap, nothing else. I have seen mention about a bootable floppy disk but do i need that if i have XP CD? It will stink if i do because the only computer I have access to is a crappy windows ME machine and I dont think it has a floppy drive.
