When you installed the hard drive did you check the jumper to make sure it was set to master ?
Have you at least checked the boot order in the BIOS to make sure the drive is listed & enabled ?
Hey all you distinguished PC experts out there!! I need your help again....so, what's new, right?
Anyway, here goes........
I have a Quantum Fireball Plus 20.5GB Hard Drive that was the system disk in another computer. I need it to be my system disk in another computer, so...I went through the XP installation procedure including deleting the existing partition on the disk, formatting the disk and then proceeding with XP Setup. Everything goes along as it should until XP is done copying the necessary files to the drive and it is time for the first reboot....when the computer restarts (with the setup CD still in the CD-Rom drive) the message "If you would like to boot from the CD press any key" appears and, of course I know that it needs to boot from the Hard Drive so I DON'T 'press any key' and I wait for the boot to take place from the hard drive but it never does. Nothing further happens......the "If you would like to boot from the CD press any key" text just stays there on the screen waiting for me to tell it to boot from the CD but, of course, I don't want it to!!
I thought it might be a problem with the XP PRo Setup CD so I repeated the drill with a Home Edition CD and again with a 98SE CD......but...no luck!! Same result!
If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!!! Also, if anyone knows where I can find the diagnostic and support software for this Quantum HD I would greatly appreciate being pointed in the right direction!!
