Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.

RE: Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
First you mentioned that "-Fresh install of XP from retail disk purchased with old computer."
then "Win xp was installed on a different machine with a different HDD."

Hm. So did you install windows xp on the new HDD yet or this issue has been keeping you at bay with the new machine? If you still haven't install XP yet then it might be a different problem. But if the computer had turned on perfectly before and let you installed XP on the new HDD then I don't really know. =(

Maybe try a different SATA port or do you have a different HDD on hands?

I should have clarified. No OS was ever installed on the new SATA drive. I was attempting to install XP from an old retail disc I had. The only HDD involved in my new build is the mentioned SATA drive.

I see. Do you have a different HDD or a different machine to plug the new HDD into?

I would just go ahead and purchase Windows 7, its more secure, will run better/quicker, and of course XP has little to no support from Microsoft.

WINDOWS Xp does not support ACHI mode. You should change the SATA mode to IDE in the BIOS. I could not install windows Xp in my PC, and my big brother's laptop. I just disabled the ACHI mode and Xp worked. BTW. There are some new MB that does not support WINDOWS Xp.
I hope this helps.

Thanks. Part of the problem is I can't get into bios because the computer won't recognize the keyboard. I'm gonna have a friend look at it this weekend, an hopefully we'll figure it out.

RE: Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
Are you using a USB keyboard or a PS/2 keyboard? Sometimes the BIOS will only recognize PS/2 keyboards.
Your friendly forum administrator.

Or try another USB port, sometime that helps.

I was attempting to use 2 different ps2 keyboards. bought a cheap usb and was able to get into boot menu to choose cd drive. now attempting to slip stream sata drivers onto winxp installation. i anticipate this working, if not, i'll have to buy win 7.

thanks for help
