Error loading operating system

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK so i have a problem. I just installed my new motherboard and CPU, flashed the BIOS to support my CPU, And then tryed to install windows. After the file copy part of the windows installation, and i have to restart, it gives me an error, "Error loading operating system"(80GB HDD) So i tryed my Westren digital 20GB HDD with a previous install of windows, and that accepted windows. so i then hooked up the 80GB HDD as slave and it worked in windows. I just cannot get it past the 2nd part of the windows install. I have tryed changing the CMOS IDE support to "Large" and i get a "Protection error"

PLease help

EDIT: My 80GB HDD is a seagate 80GB Baracuda IDE
