    I put together a new pc and put my old disk drive in it, which is 80 gig and was working fine in another computer. It has a chaintech v915p motherboard, and a intel 3.2 processor, with 512 memory. I turn it on and it powers up and gets to the screen, do I want to boot in safe mode or normal. It doesn't matter which I pick, it reboots and comes up to the same screen to boot up in safe mode or normal. The BIOs see the disk drive and the size of it. I have checked the jumper and it is right. I have disconnected the cd and diskette drives.

    It sounds to me that you're trying to boot an old HDD with Windows system and everything on brand new hardware? If you're sure that the drive is properly installed and configured as primary master (check jumper) than you should definitely try formatting your drive and reinstalling windows 'cause that would be the most probable cause of your trouble.
    Does windows setup see the drive properly?

    Cheers!

    the problem is that the hard drive has all the drivers installed from the other system,so when it tries to load it says(stuff this,hardware no match my windows)
    i'll reboot.
    you must reinstall windows or maybe a repair install will work.
