I have (at long last) built a PC based on the articles in PC Advisor of last year. I built the spec based on the ASUS P4T533 motherboard. The only change I made was to use a DVD RW (the Ricoh MP5125A). When I first booted the system, it would not recognise the existence of the Seagate Barracuda hard drive. I ran Seagate’s “DiscWizard (Start up edition) version 10.34”, which recognised the drive and told me it was formatted and partitioned for use with Windows XP Home Edition. However, when I try to install Windows the set-up programme tells me that no hard disk drive is installed. What am I not doing or doing wrong?
Thank you Forum Editor for response...the hard drive was connected to the PRI-RAID connector, as suggested in the Workshop instructions, with the DVD RW on the Primary IDE connector. I have now connected the HDD to the Primary IDE and the DVD RW to the Secondary, and Windows is loading. Thank you.
