    No.

    but I think a hint is that you did XP updates.

    Boot from the XP cd. see if it will repair the install.

    If you cannot...then put a different drive in the machine. Recheck the bios settings.

    This definately rings a bell with me! I had the same problem when building mine, f****d if I can remember how I sorted it though!

    Sorry, if I find anything in my sieve-like memory I'll let you know.....but it did work in the end!

    I had that problem also however mine turned out to be the cable. It was really strange because when I plugged my hard drive using that cable in the primary IDE channel, it would not work but when I put the same cable in the secondary it worked. At first I did not believe it but after trying consistently for two days with the same results over and over again I got fed up and pulled a cable from my desktop and that solved my problem. Funny thing is that cable now works fine in my desktop. When I'm up to it I plan on changing it before I start having problems.

    hmmmm I think I planned on changing that cable over two months ago
