So what is happening? Are you saying you are breadboarding right now?
Are you getting into the bios?
A2 error, I think, means you don't have a HDD hooked up, which you wouldn't if you are breadboarding.
well i dint have an HDD hooked up at the point, im currently installing the HDD and the optical drive at the moment. but quick question as i continue the instal, do these messages about not having keyboard and HDD mean that the other components are ok, like the CPU? i need some peace of mind that the components ive already installed are functional
