recently installed new mobo and processor and now my hdd won't boot up i keep getting a harware configuration error. I have Win Xp home installed on it. I tried a HD with Win 98 on it and it booted up no problem. I also tried booting from the Win XP Cd will only work if i disconnect the HD and then when i try to repair, i plug the HD back in and it says it didn't find the HD and i wind up back at square one. I have also tried all the boot options given at the error screen. any help would be greatly appreciated.
