No HDD detected...
Posted on 2006-11-10
Okay, so everything is hooked up; the computer turns on, and I get the right number of beeps :)
when I leave the computer to boot, it gives me a black screen with the following white text:
Reboot and select proper boot device
or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key_
So, I booted up to the BIOS instead, and under the "Primary IDE" it says "Not Detected".. (but the HDD is connected to the primary IDE cable..)
(My HDD is 200GB, and has Win XP Pro installed on it)
What shall I do? Do I need to create a boot floppy?
Thanks very much
