P5K Premium "Proper Boot Device/Insert Boot Media"
What I can't do:
Seagate 320GB SATA 7200.10
Philips 20x SATA DVD Burner
After the PC Posts, the error message "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key" comes up. My HDD and DVD Drive are both connected, the Windows XP Installation CD (Slipstreamed with SP2) is in the drive, the DVD drive is set as first to boot, etc. but no cigar.
What I have tried:
With 6 SATA ports (1,2,5,6 "master", 3,4 "slave") and two SATA devices (HDD, Philips 20X DVD Burner), there are 20 possible "combinations." I have tried nearly every combination available since I read elsewhere that the SATA drives are picky. I also tried using a different SATA cable. In addition, I tried boot HDD first, boot DVD first, boot DVD only, boot HDD only; nothing worked. I tried a different SP2 installation CD and I still received the same error message. In the BIOS I tried many different combinations of SATA configurations; still no.
Rest of Technical Information:
