Thanks, I didn't look at it in depth yet, or maybe I looked at it already. Anyway I solved the keyboard problem by using an old keyboard that wasn't USB. That took care of "NTLDR is missing" and got me into winxp setup, BUT!!!!
It tells me to insert the SATA driver disc and hit F6, which I do, but then when I try to install windows XP it STILL says that there is [none] usable hard disks to install the OS to!
It gives me the option to install a manufacturer support disc or something into Drive A, and the only floppy I have is that same mobo sata driver disk, so I try that and hit enter and it just repeates the message like it didn't read or acknowledge the floppy.
