Hello a manual is always nice to have
Download here:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/915GVM2-L.html#/?div=Manual

The file is in zip format so you have to unzip
it before you can read the content.
You also need adobe reader.
Other files can be selected in the download box.

Check the bios for basic boot up settings even load default settings.
Also check up all the wireing power, front panel etc.
Use a ps2 keyboard and mouse.
Check the cpu for propely installation
See also the power supply is working try it on another 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.

CD Drive will not allow boot


Change the boot order

Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart This will set the boot order If this fails you might try some of these Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

Soyo sy-p4vgm motherboard unable to access BIOS setup menu


Offcourse! first of all insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.
2nd way, If everything could not be possible then you should boot from CD again then select your CD drive and type a command fdisk and press y or enter 2 times. Now you choose 4 number and press enter and check the drive format if it is not FAT32 its mean that you should press 3 and then press 4 and now press enter then press escape. Then press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot now once again Boot from CD and choose CD drive and type fdisk and choose 1 then choose1 and now press enter and once again press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot. Once again boot from CD and select your CD drive and now you can install windows 98 now insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.

The problem is caused by Formatting the HDD in Vista before moving back to the system.

Simplest fix, hook it back to the Vista system and delete the partition from the drive in disk management. Once that is done, then put the drive with no partition in the XP system and boot to the XP CD, create a new partition and install XP
