What could be probably wrong when booting it just hangs on the Boot:F1 and then \ appears and does not continue and after a while a boot error will prompt.
Probably a disk geometry mismatch.
If thats the case why does, SATA hard disks are much easier to detect in newer boards? too unusual. anyways Thanks for the help
I'm not sure if I understand the question. :-
Are you using SATA?
Please describe your setup.
its allright now thanks i've done custom partition inorder to fix the problem
