Re: PCI bracket problem
Looks like you're pretty much done. Once the hard drive is in along with the burner, you're all set. Once Windows boot up for the very first time, your Add New Hardware WIzard will be popping up like a mother. I would ignore it and let it do it's thing. Install the motherboard drivers and sound drivers from the disc. Then install Norton AV and go online. Download video card drivers first and install it. Then get Microsoft Update running and get all the updates along with your antivirus definitions. After that, get whatever drivers you need and install your firewalls and other programs.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
