I am assembling a system, ( AMD Athlon II X3, PSI 770-G45, Sapphire HD 5770) But it doesn't boot. This is my first home-built rig, but I've been upgrading and such for a long time, so everything is where its supposed to be.
Thing is all assembled, but wont boot. Of course it's totally blank, but isn't it supposed to at least let me into the BIOS? If it won't even boot, I can't install windows, and then im nowhere.
so first: am I making some rookie mistake? well of course I am, but which
2nd: Can I just place another HDD with OS, use that to boot it up and then install windows on the new disk, kinda like a jumpstart?
