i have a strange issue with my windows xp installation and i am looking for some advice please
please let me first explain that my hd (wd 250 gb) was on sata port number 3 on my asus motherboard p8h61m-le socket 1155
i decided to install my hd on sata port2 and on sata port1 my dvdrw (samsung multi drive)
unfortunately the pc couldn't be booted ! so i reset the bios but again the pc couldn't booted
then i decided to re-install windows xp but the installation cannot be proceeded and have stopped just after it loaded the necessary drives !
the bios can see my hard disk and my dvdrw regardless of the sata ports
i do not want to delete my windows primary partition with a partition utility because i do not have any spare disk to backup my data
many thanks in advance
