Brando569 Posted May 16, 2006 Share Posted May 16, 2006 hey guys, something wierd is happening when i try to install windows XP on my new rig. First i had all of my drives connected and i booted into the setup and got to the partition selection screen and i noticed that it listed 3 drives when i only have two. the drives listed where my WD 800JB, my Maxtor DM +9, and an "unknown drive" and under this "unknown drive" it said in parenthesis "there is no disk in this drive" i tried to install windows to both drives and both times before it would load into the GUI it would say "error loading operating systen" i tried to remedy it a few times (ex. using different XP cds) and nothing worked. i then decided to concentrate on finding out what this "unknown drive" was. i disconnected my 4 drives (2 HDDs and 2 Optical Drives) one at a time to see if any of them was causing this. it seems like none of them were causing this because i unplugged three out of the 4 drives and this "unknown drive" was still listed. this is the setup of my rig:Asus A8NSLI MoBoAMD 64 x2 38001.5gb DDR 400mhzWestern Digital 800JB (80 GB)Maxtor Diamond Max +9 SATA (80GB)NEC CD/DVD/Dual Layer DVD burnerLite-On CD burnerNvidia GeForce 7600GT (i think this is right dont remember lol)Liberty 500wat Modular PSUhas anyone had problems like this before?? heres 2 pics i took of the screen so u can see what im talkin about (the pics are with 3 out of the 4 drives disconnected) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
