Just built a new computer:
pentium D 930
2x 250gb samsung SATA
Here is the problem(s).
First, I dont have a floppy disc or a spare harddrive with an OS on it. So how do I get windows on the SATA drives? My mobo doesnt have the native drivers.
Second, The reason I dont have a spare harddrive with an os on it is this. I plugged my harddrive from my other comp into my computer through the IDE cables. I booted the comp and it can't get more than halfway through the bootup without immediately restarting. Also if I try to run my windows XP cd with that harddrive in or any other IDE harddrive I get the BSOD saying my harddrive configuration is corrupt or i have a virus.
