Asus P3 ~1Ghz, 768 RAM, 80G HD, CDRW, DVD...

I took the case off to check the power supply...

on boot up, under the device listing it says "No Operating System"

I downloaded the 2k boot disks from bootdisk.com and ran set up no problem... I have two partitions... installed 2k on C partition... get to the part where it wants to restart... and again

No Operating System?

I thought I just installed one?

please help

hey , well seems you have to open up your computer and change your hard drive jumper setting, go on your hard drives website and get the master jumper settings then detect the hd in the bios and u should be in your desktop in no time , if you have any other questions feel free to email me at [email protected]

I didnt change the HD jumper settings to screw it up... the jumper was on Cable Select. Maybe the cable is the problem?

I've changed it to Slave.

The bios did detect the HD... it just wouldnt run the OS. I was able to run boot disks and go through windows set up... but on restart it said again No Operating System.

ok so Slave didnt change anything... Master will?

I thought the right spot for the HD was Primary Slave

formatting the partitions is what I intend to do, but I was really hoping I could get in to move some files from one to the other before formatting either partition.
