  1. Well heres whats going on,Ive built a new computer and I was putting windows xp on it,everything was working good,but then it was trying to format the hard drive and nothing was happening.So I shut it down went on the net and found out that with a sata hard drive you have to install the drivers on a floppy disc in order for the hard drive to work with the motherboard.My problem now is that when I start up the computer it isnt doing the same thing as before,it doesnt start to run the windows cd.Can anyone give me some help? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Mike
