ok i got this cause my 5970 didnt fit on old mobo.. just a cheap temporary mobo til tax tim which is when i do major upgrades
unfortunatly. everything is correctly setup its not my pc build as ive built several pcs. i keep getting "no os found"
so i dles official win xp pro sp3 and win 7 enterprise editions and made boot discs.. ew mobo wont even read discs
sooo i had a friend bring over an official win xp pro installation disc. it formats drives starts to install and midway thru restarts pc and says something like booting for C:\ windows boot failed retyr or reset.. retry = "missing operating system"
reinstall after reinstall = same results
i am now using killdisc for dos v4.1 to see if this has any effect which ill follow with another reinstallation
also the win 7 and burned win xp discs wont even load only the official does but as i may or may not have said during install the pc goes black midway and reboots.. ive tried other forums no dice so i figured id post it here if anyone has any suggestions please let me know
