post #11 of 17
This may be a stupid question, but did you set the jumper to master?

The HDD has no jumper so it defaults to cable select. Since it is the only device on the end of the cable i think it sees itself as master.

if it was seen as slave would it still boot if it was the only bootable device present on the system?

Turn the cloaking device off I've had a cloned drive to this to me before, ended up throwing the windows disc in to find out that somehow the partition had been messed up and windows didn't regonize it as a bootable partition(Couldn't even install to it, had to reformat the thing), hopefully in your case you can repair it.

I tried a full install of windows for the HDD and windows install told me that my motherboard does not support booting from IDE drives, only sata drives....

You should be able to use an IDE drive, check the settings in the BIOS for the drive.

What kind of DVD drive are you using? IDE or SATA?

Its a sata DVD drive, i think some newer boards just droped support for IDE bootable drives since sata drives are so cheap and mainstream
