maybe that should be old newby! hav got new barebones system and cant get it to boot. hav included hdd from previous pc xp is on it any ideas cheers
I suppose the first thing is being sure that the HDD is installed correctly. Make sure that it is recognised in your BIOS and that it is set as a boot device. Even if there are driver issues, in my experience you would usually at least get to teh Windows boot up screen.
