I added a new sata hd to my system.I have a K8N-E Asus motherboard, with bios ver 1003.003, an AMD 3300+ processor and am running Windows XP SP2. For some reason after making my new drive the primary drive I am unable to load my bios. I would like to go back into the bios and change back to boot from my old primary drive temporarily.
Any suggestions on how to get it to load from my old primary and get back into my bios are appreciated. Is there a way to access the bios from DOS?
Thanks!

Send a message via MSN to linderman

your new drive should have nothing to do with your bios screen ????


try unplugging the new drive and see if you get into the bios ???

is the "inability to enter the bios" a message you are seeing on the monitor which says " cant find boot device, bios not loaded ?????"

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure what the connection might be, but when I disconnect the new drive I can load the bios.

If the drive is connected it just automatically loads windows and doesn't show the bios screen.

Thanks again!
