It's me again, for the 100th time. I just upgraded my motherboard, ram, processor and video card.

My hard drive worked fine on my old computer. However, the new upgraded stuff can't recognize my Windows XP CD. CD-ROM works fine. I looked online it says that my boot sectors on my hard drive could have malfunctioned???

I get this message : "Non-System disk or disk error . . . Replace and strike a key when ready." The motherboard's boot menu doesn't have my CD-ROM or Hard drive listed as a choice to boot from.

Is there a way to "chkdsk" without using Windows XP?

Thanks in Advanced.
