For some reason when I boot up my old computer I get the message

Verifying DMI Pool Data...

Remove disks or other media
Press any key to restart


There is no floppy in the floppy drive and no cd in the cd-rom disk does this mean to remove the hardrive??

This is the hardrive that worked before... I had put it into my new computer changed the jumper to slave and hooked it up and formated it... I then decided to put it back in the old computer so I formated it and used the FAT32 system (I am going to install Ubuntu on it). I then took the hardrive out of my new computer changed the jumper to master and hooked it up to my old computer. It is plugged into the end of the IDE cable and the redline is facing the power connector like before...


*Edit* Just tried to boot without the hardrive and getting the no system disk blablabla... so I then hooked it back up and still getting the same prob...

Do you have a USB device hooked up, MP3 player, camera, flash drive,..? And if you do does your system have USB boot capabilities? In the boot order is the USB ahead of the hard drive?

Fixed the problem... went into the BIOS and did the auto detect thing... but now I got a linux problem...

I want to install xampp... running Ubuntu... now what happens is that I use firefox in ubuntu and then download the file to the desktop... now I have no idea how to decompress it the way they tell me to and get this thing started...
