Question about DFI CA61 Motherboard
I would like to know my motherboard's manufacturer to flash BIOS to a newer version, because after the XP installation finishes the computer always says "error loading operative system" and i believe thats BIOS is the problem. The old 20 Gigabyte Hard Drive had windows millenium (cant boot from it, it says NTLDR is missing and i have no diskettes), then i bought XP and i installed it on the slave Hard Drive (boot from cd). BIOS version may not be able to suport the new hard drive because it have 80 Gigabytes, so i think the solution is to flash BIOS to a newer version, but for that i have to know my motherboard manufacturer. The only thing i saw on the motherboard was CA61 rev.B1. Is this the manufacturer? How can i find it?? Is there another solution?
(remember that i cant acess to computer, no bootable source)
PS: In this moment that computer remains useless and i need it working, this is my last hope or i have to pay to have it back.
Let me know if you got it working.... this is definitely fixable, without the bios upgrade, most likely. I'm still running a PIII class computer :) firstname.lastname@example.org (Messenger too)

This is what you going to do.
first, take both drive out of the machine, change the pins. make the WinXP HHD to be the master. WinME as an secondary drive.
Reinstall the WinXP. reboot the machine, you should be at WinXP. and should be able to access the WinME hard drive.
don't need BIOS Flash or any fancy manuaval
