Complete noob here, This is the system I just put together:
AMD 1090T Gigabyte 880GA HD3H G-Skills 4x2GB 1600 MHz 60 GB SSD 1TB HDD Asus DVD drive 650 Watt PSU Using internal Video
So everything went together without a problem, went to load up windows this evening and all I can get is "disk boot failure, insert system disk...."
I hit F12 and scrolled down to CDROM hit enter, seems like it is not recognizing the CDROM? No idea! I made a second Boot CD because I thought the first one was not burned correctly. This did nothing.
So is there a way that I can check to see if the motherboard is seeing the CDROM?
Also another question, while in the BIOS I saw that my SSD was slave and HDD was master. I want to use the SSD for the OS of course, do i need to change the SSD to master somehow? Let me know how if so.
I know I can search for this but I have been and cannot seem to figure anything else out.
Thanks in advance,
More aboutcompleted build will boot
LOL, I moved the SATA plugs and re-checked the IDE cable. It was not seated properly. Booting now!
You did of course make the CD drive the first bootable drive in the boot menu?
Alright, I am on the internet. Need to figure out how to map the HDD as a drive so that I can start uploading/downloading things. I would like it to be the primary so everything likes to go directly to it.
