So I finnally got my first computer built after much angst and frustration (specially those intel stock coolers
Everything is done and I booted up bios. Insterted Vista and was on my way.
Problem: vista is trying to "save" all its crap, cept it can't find "drivers" for my hard drive (seagate 250gb). I was like "what the hell", seagate said they don't have drivers to download and their support is absolutely crap.
After screwing around for an hour I decided to install my xp home edition.
It recognized the harddrive and I went through a quick format. After it was done it rebooted automatically and tried to start up from hard drive. Then a message "A disk read error occurred; Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" SO WTF?
Then I retried xp and did the full format which took another good hour. It rebooted and when it got to the same part as last time and now it just keeps on restarting for no effing reason.
Is there problem with hard drive, bios ?
