Question about ASUS A8N-VM CSM (00610839133826) Motherboard
Well what I wanted to do was reformat my computer because i have vista ultimate edition and I want xp. Im scared that if I reformat my computer that I wont be able to install xp because my computer can't boot from the dvd drive. The problem was that it wouldn't boot my xp cd or even my vista cd. I have 2 hardrives and one of them, drive c, has vista installed. So what I did was i disconnected my hardrive that has the vista installed from my motherboard. My other hardrive is blank so when i rebooted it says error loading operating system and when i try using my xp or even my vista cd to boot it doesn't boot. So i reconnect that harddrive that has vista installed and everything gos fine just that i cant boot XP or VISTA.Really weird need help. I think it might have to do with my BIOS but it is set to default. When writing a solution for me PLZ write alot of information and solutions just in case your first solution is no help. THX!
First you must check your XP/Vista cd if it is bootable then open the bios setting change the first boot to CD ROM save and exit the bios insert CD wait for a second if the CD is BOOTABLE if so then follow the instructions of formating drive. But before you do that you must be sure that you have all the driver need to you PC for security you must use the black drive then install the XP OS.

This is an efficient, easy-to-use tool to help you figure out the details that make your computer tick.

The program can retrieve information on the type of BIOS your computer runs and chipset type, as well as information on CPU, ROM, and RAM.

This program will be useful for administrators or power users looking to keep their systems up to date also there are many BIOS patches or udates you can download
hope this helps.
