new build booting problem
I have just built a new system with all new parts except my old IDE HDD.
The new system is:
AMD 64 3000+
Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS mobo
sony dvd rom
pny pci-e 6600gt
The system seems to recognise all of these in the POST screen.
The problem i have is that the POST screen is displayed, then a windows 'did not close down last time' screen displays. then, whichever option i choose, a blue screen flashes up and the system reboots before i can read what the message says.
ive tried checking jumpers, taking out a memory stick, etc, but with no success.
Any ideas as to what it might be?
could it be that my old HDD isnt compatible?
