basically, recognises my hdd (pata) in the bios but wont boot from it. after the bios, it just seems to loose it and booting from a linux or windows install disc confirms this as they too cannot locate the drive.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
on a side note, the cpu fan for the mobo is only 3 pin, my fan works off of it but i receive a message telling me "system fan not detected". could this be because i have no chassis fan attached to the mobo?
