Your using EIDE? Dude go with SATA, its so much easier. Like Law said, start by unplugging all your optical drives and such (CD-ROM, floppy...etc.), while your at it check and make sure your jumper settings are correct. You'd be amazed at how much crazy **** happens if you have to slaves or two masters. If you unplug all your devices and it works properly, then you've narrowed it down to either your floppy, disc drive, or hard drive. Either your IDE cable is shot, or it could even be your motherboard. Good luck bro.
