Hey guys, I just received all my parts and thanks a ton to those who have helped. Big shout out to WR2 for help with my build.
Now that I`ve got all my parts, I was jsut curious about something.
Nowadays do comptuers recognize dvd drives and mouse and keyboard before installing the OS or anything? I remember back in the day a pc would not recognize the cd rom and you would boot with a floppy or something. How are things today?
Yes. Most devices work the the generic Windows drivers (otherwise, how could you configure a video card?). Then after you are in Windows, you install the "real" factory drivers that give you more features.
You can still boot a modern PC with floppies. It just takes six or so.
