Hello Folks, I listed this problem before but was never answered. I have new info though. Ok, building a P4 2.8GHz CPU with a asus board P4S800D, 80gb hd, 512mb RAM, Radeon 9600SE vid card, CDRW dvd lite on, antec case with 350 watt power supply.
Ok, When I use the 80gig drive with XP installed, it does not cold boot. I have to restart it and then it takes a long time but it will load XP and works fine. It always takes a long time to post and hardware check but on cold boot with the 80gb hd it will go through and then give this message
" Reboot and go into setup to set boot device priority or Insert Boot Disk and press any key"
This is a real annoying problem but I do notice that the HD light does not light up until after restart when it will load. Otherwise from cold boot no activity.
Also, I have XP installed on a 2GB HD and it will load XP from cold boot but still takes a long time.
Searching post and google has lead me to believe it is a power issue of some sort or maybe a jumper issue or something else.
Please Help, I really need this quick.
