Ok so what ive done was back up all my files that i want to keep on a second hard drive so i could install another windows. all worked fine, installed windows everything working fine until i go to put the other hard drive in thats got all my stuff on it. when i go to start up i only get the motherboard screen and the computer doesnt boot and wont let me go into setup. if i press delete quick enough after restarting it says loading setup but just stays at that. So when i take the drive it back out usualy it boots ok except it now takes a LOT longer to go from the motherboard screen to win xp loading. If anyone can help me i will call you lots of nice names. Cheers, Paul
