Shwahhht? Sounds like he formatted and wonders why there's no windows on his comp! Maybe I just can't read. But anyway, set the Bios boot order to CD-Rom in the first spot. If your comp is doesnt recognize your sata HD make sure you enable the sata ports in the bios as well. If I remember correctly, theres a floppy disc that has some sata/raid drivers on it that you'll likely need to actually get windows installed. Best of luck.
