Hello fellow forum members I’m new to the forum and have taken a leap into building my first unit. I just have a couple of tech question for the group along with the Gigabyte team. Today I was not able to get my new build to post at all not sure why. I have covered the new build checklist provided here but still nothing.
I have double checked all my connections everything seems to be connected correctly and up and running PSU,Mobo,Fans,GPU ect. I was under the empression that by ghosting one of my Seagate 1 tr HDD drive from my old system would have the OS on it to start my config. but after doing this I could not get the system to post or boot to XP Pro at all.
I did connect my two Sony Optiarc drives but only one worked. I attempted to load the Gigabyte cd which came with the Mobo but the Sony Optiarc when ballistic mach 7 like a buzz saw when the disk is not in.
Here are my current header connections for Sata:
0 is my HD
3 working Sony Optiarc
I would appreciate anyone who could enlighten me on what I am doing wrong that is causing the problem?
Once again thank to the forum and Gigabyte for making themselves available.
