Ok first of i am ready to tear my hair out. I'm fixing a computer for someone, which it seems they have royally ****ed up. First issue, no matter what hard drive i put into the machine, and i stress i am only putting in one at a time, EVERYTHING is hooked up correctly, instead of say fdisk, or win98 boot (just using this to see the drive letter, and fdisk)showing the MASTER HD as a C Drive, its showing it as a d drive. I have tried everything i can think of, i've reset the bios, taken out the cmos battery and reset the mobo that way, i've tried loads of different ribbons and even switched the dvd drive and the hd around on the ide connectors. I also put in another dvd drive, and still no luck. Now i built this PC for this guy about a year ago and it was set up fine, no compatibility issues at all. Now i am just stumped, any advice? The reason i was fixing it in the first place is because he tried to add another drive and all this happened. Second Issue, which may be related to the first. When i go to install XP, simply accepting that i'll have to put up with the letter d, it gets all the way to the point where it looks for previous versions of windows then the computer restarts, and nothing i do changes this (i tried all the above), any advice?
