I'm new to building computers. This is my first one and I'm having
some problems with it. I am unable to boot from the CD. The disk spins
but just sits there at "Boot from CD: _ " after I had hit enter after I
inserted the xp boot cd. I think the problem may lay with the hard
drive. I only have one so RAID is out of the question. But I dont know
what to do since the motherboard manual I was using only discusses
RAID. I trired IDE, but got the same result. My specs are as follows:
If you need to know anything else, just let me know. Thanks in advance for your help.
Ist thing you need to do is to go into the bios check you settings, be sure that your boot device settings are set so your Optical drive (CD rom) is set as 1st boot device and then check and make sure that your hard drive is being reconized ! hit F10 to save settings and reboot! Good luck.

Congrats on fixing your problem!
