So I just finished assembling my new PC and have everything set to go. The computer starts up, does the quick system check and immediately tries to boot the HDD. This is where the problem comes up.
1. The memory test checks out.
2. The HDD is detected with the proper data. (Size, Name, SATA, Stats.. etc.)
3. As soon as it tries to boot.. it says
Did not find any drive ....
PLEASE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
Well the only system disk I have is a windows install disc and the CD that came with my motherboard, neither seem to work in either CD drive I use.
I have tried four jumper settings including no jumper, to no avail.
(All vertical jumper position, I can't imagine it should be positioned horizontal?)
