So last Wed I noticed that my PC was acting really weird. A few quick examples, I couldnt remote into it and it was running really really slow. Well I went to reinstall XP and it wont boot from CD. It gives me the "Press any key to boot from CD" So its seeing that there is a bootable CD in the drive. But when I press any key it freezes right away. There are two CD drives on that IDE channel and it does the same thing in the other drive. I also tried three different XP cd's, including one that I just burned. So I resorted to using my set of XP boot disc's. It runs thru the disc's just fine, but when they get done I get an error saying that it cant find an XP cd in the drive. I cant figure out whats going on.
Anyone have any suggestions? I really hope my secondary IDE channel isnt toast.
