I am running a new system with an Epox EP-8RDA PRO, XP 3200+ 1 gig Crucial Memory, and a new 80gig Maxtor drive.
The other day it would not wake up. I had to hit the reset. Then it would boot to the "detecting Drives" and stop. Had to shut it down completely and restart. Last night it would only reboot and reboot, it would not load windows.
I booted from the XP CD and it told me that my Hard Disk was not formated properly and needed to be formated to continue, so I formated and reinstalled Windows.
Today when I got home from work I had this nice message on my screen
Client Mac ADDR: 00 04 61 70 D3 80 GUID; FFFFFFFFFFFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFFF FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
PXE-MOF: Existing NVIDEA Boot Agent.
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER
then just the flashing line.
I inserted my XP CD and now it tells me that "Set-up did not find any hard drive installed on your computer".
Did my hard drive go bad? Or is it something else???
