hey there guys, well i got all the parts for my computer and had no trouble putting things together,
but now im having a real hard time with getting windows on the new hard drive, and with messages popping up
i installed the components and cable to the T , just like it said in the manuals, but when the computer starts up it tells me a warning that says something like " WARNING an ultra ata66 device (or faster) has been detected on the ata 33 cable, plugged into the secondary ...."
ive tried all confiurations with the cables and i get the same result, so im assuming it may be the cable, are there different IDE cables out there? i used the one that came with the motherboard
Im also having trouble getting windows XP on the new drive, ive used the data lifeguard tools and partitioned it as per the instructions, but when i try to get windows on i get a bunch of errors, a blue screen, "NTLDR is missing"
ive gotten as far as the main setup for windows then it will blue screen telling me windows setup has shutdown so it will not damage my computer
heres what im working with:
western digital 160 GB hard drive
asus P5AD2 -E Premuim motherboard
all the other stuff seems ok
also anyone know whats up with the RAID configuration stuff, as far as i can tell me with one hard drive wouldnt need it, seems to be for multiple hard drives
anyway thanks for anyones time
