Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a MSI K8TM-ILSR m/b in a Antec Aria case with a card reader. When I try to install WinXP pro, it wants to choose F as the drive to install the OS. Any idea as to why XP chooses F and not C as the drive letter.Kindest regards.Tim Lumsden.waimang2@gmail.com

    Hi. Thanks for the quick responce.
    I figured it all out. The "card reader" that was attached to a USB port on the mother board, was seen by winxp as a physical drive and had assigned it drive letters which stopped the main HD from being asigned the drive letter C and gave it F instead.
    Removing all cable connections from USB ports on the motherboard fixed the problem. Win XP is now on primary HD, drive letter C.
    Whooohooo!

Because 'f' is the first accessable drive to XP, that does not have an OS already installed.

It could also be a usb drive - remove it and ty again

Gateway PC into Antec enclosure?


Hi:
You should be able to transfer your motherboard to the new case, but some things to check before you do:
How do the power switches and front audio/USB connections work for the old gateway? Are they standard or vendor specific? Are the optical drives in the gateway standard, or do they have special fronts on them? I have done what you are wanting to do several times, and often you need to replace OEM optical drives, and sometimes the motherboard headers don't match up with a builder case, so you do the best you can.

MSi Motherboard suddenly stopped seeing My IDE drives/ CD/DVD


Could quite simply be that its the IDE plug on the motherboard that's gone. If that's the case, you'll probably need a new motherboard.

As far as I can see, you've done pretty much everything that can be done to make sure it's not the motherboard.

Good Luck
