I have an old PC that im trying to get to run. I have a working hard drive as well as a working cd drive. Here is the problem I go into bios, tell it to boot from CD, and then I have to detect the hard drive in the bios. It detects....kinda. Its a bunch of jibberish sometimes, but other times it detects it fine. CD always detects fine. This happens with any number of hardrives that are known to be fine. So on the off instance the hard drive detects, ill load up my windows CD and try to boot from CD. No dice. I get a "please insert boot disk" error. I tried to fdisk to delete any partitions, but that wont work either. It seems that there is literally no way to get ANY hard drives to load any OS with this PC. Im thinking the old as hell mobo is shot, but id like any tips. EDIT- CD and HD are IDE, have made sure each is pri master, set them up any way you can think and moved them to different IDE ports. Im sure there is plenty im leaving out, so feel free to ask.
