A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post regarding my newly built PC not finding any of my IDE devices. I did what was suggested and that has worked thanks. However now the PC tries to boot from the CD-ROM drive and asks for a boot disk. As far as I know I don't have one and wouldn't know what it is asking for anyway. Any suggestions?
If the CDrom is set as first boot dvice in the BIOS you will see a message on the POST screen. searching for CD rom boot not found.
The search for a Bootable CD slows the boot sequence down only by a secondor so. It is best to leave this set it will do no harm and if you have a problem with windows then booting with the XP CD in the drive will get you to the recovery consul or repair XP.
