OS won't boot properly


Recommended Posts

Howdy all,

 

I'm new to all this biz and after many months, I've finally gathered enough pieces to put a system together. However, I can't get the OS to boot properly. It continuously tries to reboot to CD-ROM after initial setup. Here is what I've tried so far:

After it does all its business and the OS prompts you to reboot, press delete and go to bios and set your first boot to HD and leave the 2nd and 3rd disabled. It should boot the HD and after it boots to Windows will prompt you to insert disc with OS.

So many suggestions in there, no one mentioned CLEARING THE CMOS?

 

I had the exact error message you described after a couple of suicide benchmark attempts. Couldn't get it to boot no matter what. Was at a loss, then thought to try what everyone always suggests as a fix for almost anything on these boards: The DFI Way of clearing the cmos

 

Guess what, it worked like a charm!

Key word, "initial setup".
