Thanks for the quick response. I tried them all. Its strange because a couple of weeks ago I could get into the bios using the delete key. I had trouble starting 2 weeks ago with my main hard drive. It would boot to the windows start up, then to a black screen with a moveable cursor. I used f8 to boot off of my older hard drive and its fine. I scanned my new one for viruses and found nothing. Tried everything to get it to work, I just recently formatted it. However I went to install windows xp on it again, and I thought it worked fine. It booted up to a fresh install but then I see it installed the windows folder on to my older drive. So now there's 2 copies of windows on my old drive. I dont know why it won't let me install to my new one. I thought maybe accessing the Bios could help to change boot order.
