    What does it do when you try to boot from CD? If you can get that to work and have your Windows CD then I would try running a repair on windows (works pretty well for most problems like the one you are having). Did you try switching back your cables?

    thing is it will let me into bios when it feels like it and last time i was in there, it did detect it(earlier today).when the blue screen is up, i try pressing f9 or f11 and nothing. and i went back to the original cable.

    Check your jumper settings...go back to original jumper settings and original cable and then post results. What stands out to me is you changed to the rounded cables. If this cable has two connectors it's possibly the jumper settings on the hd. In working with on my carpc I've found that the older system I'm using is quite particular about cables and jumper settings.

    just pop open the case and find any and all wires and make sure they are all pushed in the right way.
    When in doubt, moo at things.
