Question about PC Chips MB PCCHIPS SiS746FX M848A V5.0 462 Motherboard
I have installed Windows XP Pro but I cannot get the motherboard to boot from the hard drive. It always looks to boot from the CD ROM of Floppy. It says "Read error". If I leave the Win XP Pro installation CD in all it does is go through the motions of installing the OS again instead of loading the system from the harddrive and completing the system install. What do I need to do?
Go into your BIOS with the appropriate key (printed on the screen when you first turn the PC on).
Look around the various menus for a "boot order" or something to that effect.
I'd usually set it for CDROM then HDD... but as long as the hard disk is actually in the list before anything else with a bootable disc in it, you should be fine!
