I think I may have just figured out my rebooting issue...
Looks like I have the hard drive plugged into the secondary IDE port, and the DVD drive plugged into the Primary...WTF? Correcting, remounting the HD horizontal, and then testing. Standby.
I need help with the following issue: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/gene...ng-screws.html
There is no radio, only an amp. I am just trying to find out what the best place to install it is. I haven't tried F8 yet.
I ended up being able to do a recovery install. At first, it wasn't an option, but then I went to the console, and did away with the boot.ini. When it rebooted, I had given up, and was going to do a brand new install, and low and behold, the option for recovery was there! After I got the system up, the USB hub would be powerd up. The keyboard is enabled in the BIOS, and works until windows fully loads to the welcome screen, and then I saw the hub deactivate. I had to plug in a PS/2 keyboard, and then break out of the hibernation, to a fresh boot. When Windows came up, it found all my USB devices, and all was well with the world! Now all I have to do is figure out my ground loop/altenator whine issues.
It can now be officially called an mp3... or a wma... or an avi... or mpg.... etc ;]
I think it was a hardware change that did me in. I destroyed the boot.ini file on purpose, so I could recover.
