There will be little tweaks to speed up boot times, or for OCing and stuff. But there shouldnt be anything in default settings that would cause problems. It could be something simple like a dirty disc or dodgy IDE cable etc

Ive just re read your first post and just noticed something. You have got your CD drive as primary master, this should be the HDD, and the CD drive should be secondary master. I really need to start reading these posts slower lol

It is a problem mate, your primary IDE should always be the HDD, it should be set as the primary master, and the CD should be setup as secondary master (both seperate cables), its common practice. Try swapping the cables round and see what happens.

also make sure your jumper settings are correct and have you tried the disk in a different cd rom drive as this could be the problem
