Hello everyone. This is my first time posting here, didn't know you were here until I found you today. And of course I only sought out help because I am having some major computer problems. Anyway, here's my issue and I hope somebody has some ideas. My computer had a major heart attack a couple nights ago which has degraded to not being able to boot up because "...\windows\system32\config\system is either missing or corrupt". I try to run the setup on my windows xp disk but after if finishes loading up I can't do anything because it doesn't recognize that I have a hard drive connected. Now I know that my bios doesn't see my hard drive, it never has, but until now it's never been a problem. I have the latest drivers for my A7V600-X motherboard. I can't seem to get the bios to see my 80 gig Deskstar SATA hard drive, either automatically or manually. Any ideas?
