Question about EliteGroup P4M800-M7 Motherboard
I have a brand new foxconn xe 925 motherboard and the problem is that i cannot boot my win xp from the cd-rom drive.i tried to set first boot device to cd-rom but it was useless. i allso tried to disable all the boot devices and i let the first boot device to cd-rom and after that i had an error that sounded like disk faileure. i have 2 hdd on ata 1 master 2 slave and 1 dvd-writer.i tried allso to boot from ms-dos but the cd-rom was not found.the freaky thing is that when i enter the windows the cd-rom is found.
PS i tried all bios configuration that normaly would woek but in my case was useless.
pls give me the exact bios configuration for boot
i tried to reebot the bios allso
Test the CMOS BATTERY..TO MAKE SURE ITS GOOD IF NOT REPLACE.If it test good leave out for 5-10 minutes replace.motherboard bios should now beat default settings.reenter the bios.move cd to first boot.save changes.if you do not save changes it will not work.place.computer should now boot from disk.

First of all on your computers motherboard,you have two connectors, one is called "IDE1 and IDE2",your hard drive plugs into IDE1,and your CD-Rom plugs into IDE2, on some older motherboards your hard drive will plug into the older models, IDE0, and your CD-Rom will plug into IDE1, the lowest IDE# is the primary boot up connector,Remember that!,now once you do that,have a look at the back of you CD-Rom and Hard Drive,you will see tiny symbols on them,one will say "primary" or PY,anther will say "cabel select" or CS,and the last will say "slave" or SE, or SL,which ever,some harddrives have a little drawing on them that will show you how to set them to primary or slave,set both of them to Primary,OK!,connect your IDE1 to you hardrive,and connect your IDE2 to your CD-rom or dvd drive,if you have two drives using one cable,one has to be set to primary,while the other is set to slave,or your computer wont boot,that is important!!Put your Window's CD into CD-Rom drive on IDE2 ,in your BIOS,deactivate your hardrive on IDE1,it will tell you the model name of your hard drive,deactivate it so it wont boot from that drive(since it does not have an operating system on it yet!,its not going to boot),now save and exit,and it will reboot,now when the computer starts it will say some thing like"cant find drive to boot from,boot from cd-rom?" press y to say "yes",or n to say "no",on some systems it will say "cant find drive,press any key to booy from CD-Rom" in which case you just push any button,and your computer will begin booting from the Cd-Rom,since you deactivated your Hardrive,the widows installation program will find it,and ask you to install the operating system on it,it will ask you to partition the drive using fat32,or NTFS, use NTFS,its better!!,and then it will begin installing after windows after that.its that easy.then update your system,on windows update.
