I finally had some time last weekend to put my SN85G4V2 together. Youu\nmay recall from a previous thread I was planning to use a WD120gb\ndrive, which was a second drive in my old computer, as the HD for my\nshuttle.\n\nI started about 1pm last Saturday, took out the HD and wireless pci\ncard from my old PC, and changed the jumper on the HD from slave to\nmaster. Then I assembled the shuttle. Within 90 minutes, I was ready\nto plug it in and start loading windows. Of course, on the first\nboot, it goes to the CD since the OS was not installed. So I go\nthrough the installation of WIndows, everythiing seems to load fine.\nThen it comes time to reboot in the windows load process and it goes\nback to the install cd. I could get the pc to recognize the HD once\nit booted from CD, could browse the disk and launch apps, I just\ncouldn't boot from it. I double check connections, look at the bios to\nmake sure the HD is first in the boot sequence, then reload windows\nagain -\- no difference.\n\nI was hoping that I would be able to load Windows on this drive\nwithout reformatting it, that way I wouln't have to reload the gigs\nand gigs of stuff I'd copied off it for backup. But after a couple of\nhours of trying, I relented and started from scratch, repartitioning\nand formating the drive. The I went through the Windows loading\nprocess again and, of course, same thing, wouldn't boot from the HD.\n\nAfter several hours, I switched to family activities, figuring I would\nstart again in the morning. Well, Sunday morning, something told me\nto check the jumper on the HD. I pulled the drive, moved the jumper\nfrom master to "cable select" and guess what, THAT FIXED IT!!! So the\nmoral of this is the shuttle wants to see the HD jumper in the cable\nselect position.\n\nPS, loaded WinXP SP2, IT DID NOT WORK -\- it kept doing the reboot\nthing. Prior to loading I searched for the culprit file MS says\ncauses this and did not find it, so something else is doing it. I\nreverted back to pre-SP2 install.
