Question about EliteGroup PM800M2 Motherboard
I had to replace a bad hard drive, and got a new 500GB SATA drive. I installed windows XP on it and it boots from the windows CD or from other diagnostic bootable CDs that I have, but it won't boot directly from the BIOS. It gets the usual error "No boot drive available, insert system drive and press enter". The drive is detected properly by the bios, and I have done all of the boot order and boot drive selection set up, but all to no avail. Is this a know bios problem with this type/size of drive?
