    Yes, please be sure that your boot priorities are in order.

    However, I changed my boot priorities and that still didn't work. I had to change the order in which my drives were initialized. (Not sure what that actually means, some option I found in my BIOS)

    most "older" BIOS tend to boot to IDE first then SCSI second so boot order can matter

    If your still getting problems rex need more info :)

    It could be your DVD,as I recently bought 25 pack of Samsung-Pleomax ,DVD-R,only to find none of them can be read by my drive an Nec 3,450A.
    Previously only got a rogue one's.
    To confirm this try- Nero CD-DVD Speed website .

    I havent seen this fix yet. There are cd drivers inder the root drive when you select browse. The last folder has all the drivers needed, takes a few minutesto load them. Windows just fails to pre load them..
