Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

I want to instal a windows XP SP3 on Foxconn 915 series with north bridgegrantsdale G-i915G with a IDE H.D.D (pata) and sata O.D.D,it seems that i need a floppy disk for raid driver,but i lost motherboard...


There are a couple options.
  • Check in BIOS to see if your motherboard supports IDE emulation mode. If it does turn it on and XP will install just fine.
  • Download and read about using nlite to incorporate sata drivers into an Windows XP installation disc. (You will need another working computer. Download nlite and insert the XP disc run nlite and select your CD as your windows install file location. Download generic sata drivers, intel has a bunch you can get for free. In the nlite menu to add drivers select folder option and select the folder with the drivers. Set anything else you want in nlite and burn the new XP disc. This disc will install just fine as it now has sata drivers.
Comment if you need further instruction.

I supposed you are using windows xp, put the Win XP cd in your cd drive and start your computer

boot on the cd drive, wait until the winxp finishes its copying

When asked if your want to install winxp or repair [R] choose repair by pressing R

wait till the command line and type: chkdsk /r

wiat until it finishes, it may take about 20 to 30 minutes..

reboot your pc

Hi You need to make sure that your boot sequence sets to boot from hard drive first. Also, make sure that the hard drive sequence has the hard drive enabled. If this does not work, then let me know so I can give another suggestion.
