On newer boards this option is listed by default. So just try it first versus messing with bios.
You do not want to have the vista disk in your dvd drive when you do this.
will do, if that doesnt work i have an enable feature i can try to use (instead of auto)
btw thanks for all your help this whole time
you and zmatt are awesome you guys helped me pick out my pc + are helping me get it to a usable state
WOOT it worked
its copying the files to the HDD right now
altho the HDD only sais 149gig but meh whatever. ive had this laptop for 2 years and ive only managed to use 70gigs heh and i dont plan on having much if any clutter on my HDD (altho my wife is forcing me to hook up the printer to the new pc, so i guess all those pics, which is over 20gigs worth is going on this pc
i just need to figure out which keyboard to use for this pc, right now i got the old school one hooked up because it was the first one i grabbed. then i need to get a mic and eventually a new case and ill be all set
later down the road i might have you guys help me pick a nice case, i have one in mind though, but i think i might want something with more room in it for future upgrades so the one i have in mind might not be a good idea for future upgrades. that or if i did upgrade(talking 3+ years) ide just end up giving this pc to my wife, like i am with my laptop(except im taking it with me on days i go on military leave for more than 3 days)
but anywho, you guys rock so much. my next challenge i might need help with(but hopefully not) will be getting all my drivers installed, i believe hef is the one that recommended going to the asus website before updating vista, so i think ill do that so i wont have the headache i did with my last build of xp giving me all the wrong drivers and having over 15 re formats before i realized what the problem with my video card was heh(also the cd the video card came with messed me up too, so im going to put all my cds up and do what was recommended just to be safe)
i just hope i can get my internet working without using a cord(as i dont have one here, everything i own is wireless) so if my dynex wirless usb adapter works ill be all set.
