you will have to explain a bit more clearly than that. I don't really understand your question. And post it in the computer help section you will get more responses.

Not sure I fully understand the problem, but if you are trying to install Windows, set the boot order in your BIOS to boot the CD first, then Hard Drive then Floppy. That way it should run setup off the CD without trying to load the O/S from the Hard Drive.

Good advice

listen spike, explain your problem coherently, list your pc specs.

You may receive some help if you lose the attitude.

Default Re: what the hell? bios problem.

look: I can't do anything on my computer... I mean, exept for formatting a floppy disk with a useless diskette on it, that ''installation cd'' that came with the motherboard is just useless. I'm kinda mad at the computer because I'm just tired of trying without installing something... I don't even understand what you mean by put the windows disc in a booted from cd-drive...
I'm newbie to that... I only know some parts...

well i think...
The m/board disk won't do jack until you've installed Windows

EDIT: Can you list your system specs, including m/board model, I gather from the gibberish it is an Asus board?

EDIT2: I think I see the problem, you don't understand what we're talking about.

To get Windows to install you need to make your optical drive your first boot device in the bios.

Now we'll start at the beginning just in case you don't know how to do things.

1/. Can you get into the bios??? (remove the disk from the optical drive, remove any disks from the floppy drive, boot the pc, do you see any text on the monitor??? If you press delete repeatedly during boot do you enter the bios???)

Default Re: what the hell? bios problem.

Have you taken the Windows disk out of the optical drive and booted?

What Asus model is your board?

EDIT: OK, this appears as if it is going to be a long process, I'll check back later to see if you've replied.
