    lol well lets just say i didnt exactly buy it - and its windows xp pro, so yeah it loads up all ok i can enter the bios alright but it just doesnt seem to want to loadup the disk

  • spikeman110 Jan 29, 2009

    lol i know, i actually figured out one of the problem kind of - turns out the hard drive was damaged so i put in another one newly formatted but now it turns out the bios doesnt support 300gigs -_-



    i suppose if i had a smaller hard drive i could then install xp and update the bios



    what do u guys think?



    p.s if i cant fix it i might just salvage everything i can and get a new motherboard

You can't just pop in a disc and update it, you have to do a lot before you can do that. That's like saying you're just gonna grow 6 feet tall tomorrow...doesn't work like that.
