    Hello,
    I bought a p4p800s to replace my p4g8x board that shorted. I put
    in my sata drive which had xp pro on it. I had to call MS to get a new
    install key. I can go to the bios and set the boot order and the
    drives and save. But, everytime I boot this thing, I have to go back,
    selects the sata drive, and reset the boot order. Could this simply be
    a battery prob? I thought the battery was only for the clock. Any
    ideas?
    Thanks

    Could well be. The battery keeps the CMOS memory 'alive',
    which is where the BIOS stores its settings.
