    DISK BOOT FAILURE using XP

    Hey guys. i just put my new machine togethor and i am having a few problems. I have bought an intel e4300, Abit Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI and 2 gig RAM to go with my existing SATA and IDE hard disks, DVD drives.

    I booted from CD, performed a full format on my existing SATA hard disk that was running XP. Windows installed fine and i installed drivers from the Abit CD then when i restart my machine I get DISK BOOT FAILURE MESSAGE.

    I have check my boot priority in CMOS and i cant work out what the problem is. I arranged exactly how i had it on my old nforce 4 board but i keep getting the error.

    my current priority is

    1) CD
    2) samsung HDD (XP installation) sata
    3) western digital (just storage) sata
    4) maxtor (just storage) ide


    Any help gratefully recieved.

    I wanna get gaming!!!

    cheers
