Loading WindowsXP problems

Post by hutchd2001 » Mon May 10, 2004 10:20 am

Hello Everyone,
I have a Abit BP6 motherboard and trying to load WindowsXP. I have not been able to get any Microsoft Operating System to recognize my Yamaha CD Burner or my Litton DVD player. Hence, I can't load Windows XP/2000 or NT. I have just updated the BIOS to RU and it works great. Both my 20GB WD Hard Disks are recognized. I have been able to load RedHat Linux and verified that both CD and DVD do actually work. Any suggestions? :twisted: :evil:

1st suggestion, more detail.... ;-)

are your cd-roms plugged into ide0 / 1 or 2 / 3
they might not work on 2 / 3, especially if your highpoint controller is playing up....

did you set your bios to boot cdrom,c,a (you didn't say)

anything else I forgot ?

make sure that the jumpers are set right
and try making the master the last one on the cable, some drives are weird like that
yea, back from the dead

If it ain't broken, mod it until it is
