Welcome to TSF

...To get it to work? Is it not booting now?

Normal boot order is as follows:
1. Floppy drive
2. CD/DVD Drive
3. Hard drive
4. Anything else, usually a USB drive

What's #6 in your list? PCI...?

Are you trying to simply boot from the hard drive, or do you still need to install Windows?

Hello Infalliblexone,


It's booting up now to windows, I just didn't know if I need that PCI BEV: MBA V9.0.12 slot 0340 in the list, what is that the bios version? I just need to boot from the hard drive and make windows work. So as long as I have the right sequence you stated it should work fine. Them usb drives can they be in any order? There is a USB KEy, Usb FDC, EXcluded are USB HDD, Usb CDrom, PCI SCS1 thanks for the help

Hey PG, When reinstalling an OS, like changing Vista to Xp you will want a different boot order than just using the machine. As when reinstalling an OS you want the machine to boot from the Cd and not the HD.

Example:
1. IDE HDD: HDS728080pla 380-(S1)
2. IDE CD: Sony DVD RW
3. Diskette Drive A
4. USB FDC:
5. USB KEY:

Means it will boot from the hard disk and ingore you trying to reinstall XP

Change it so No. 2 is in the place of No. 1 and that means that the machine will boot from the Xp cd in the drive and install it, when its finished installing just change the boot sequence back to
1. IDE HDD: HDS728080pla 380-(S1)
2. IDE CD: Sony DVD RW
3. Diskette Drive A
4. USB FDC:
5. USB KEY:


Once hard disk is in first position after install the rest should ok in any order.

Click Start, type diskmgmt.msc, press Enter. Right click the drive icon (e.g. Disk 0), click Properties, then Policies.

Is there a dot beside ‘Optimize for performance‘ and a check on ‘Enable write caching on the disk’.
