First boot worked, but what comes next?
Well, I am so thankful for all the help I received here because after listening carefully to you, I fired up my first built computer and it booted, BIOS worked, and I even installed the XP Pro.
But now I am not sure what to do...the mother board came with a CD filled with drivers...am I to install that next? and I still have not installed the video card or the firewire card.
Also, i think i made a mistake by leaving the extra 200 GB SATA HD in. I think I can uninstall it and download a special update to accept and recongize the HD larger than 137? Also, the XP PRO I am using was a gift to me. But it has no service packs...
Can anyone tell me what to do next and if there is a logical sequencial order to follow?
Waiting for more good advice so I can finish the project.
Thanks everyone again for helping me come this far!
