This is what it says when i turn it on "Reboot and select a proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot divice and press a key" Someone please help me since this is my first pc i ever built. Thnx
So do you have a copy of an OS that your trying to install?? I'm pretty sure you can't just move your HD from one PC to the next, without some issues. I might be wrong, but your current HD doesn't appear to have any information on it. That is why it's asking you to "Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key".
Ideally you want to reinstall the os: you are going to run into driver problems now and stability issues later by trying to use the same os install in a new computer.
make sure the drive is showing in bios, then insure that is as selected as the boot drive. there are two settings in bios one that selects boot device order and another that selects which hd is considered the boot drive.
Here is where the jumper is on the back part of your HD.
You should have it selected to "Master" (assuming you only have this HD hooked up to the IDE ribbon cable. If it's the second one down on the ribbon cable, It'll need to be on the "Slave" selection) selection. The jumper is usually green or black and you pull it out of it's slot and insert it into the correct slot that you want to select. I think you could even get away with the "Cable Select (CS)" option too, but it's been awhile since I installed an IDE HD.
I wouldn't install it as cable select, sometimes those old drives are finicky. Pull that jumper out, and there should be a diagram on the label of the drive that shows you where to put the jumper for various settings. Place it in the setting as a master, then make sure the cable on the board goes to the ide slot that says 1 or 0. Whichever number is lower on your board.
