Question

Hi, I built a completely new system (everything in it is new, besides the harddrive and DVD drive). When I start the computer, I get the normal BIOS screen and then I get an error saying "A disk error occurred press ctrl+alt+del to restart. When I restart, I get the same message. I tried re-installing xp again (twice) and am still getting the same error. I tested it with 2 working harddrives (Both IDE) and I STILL get the same message. I have tried re-setting BIOS settings to default, and still get the message. (I do have the jumpers set right, and I have tested different IDE cables) If anybody could help me it would be very apprecieated.

Specs:
OS: Windows XP Professional SP3

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo e8400 3.0ghz

MOBO: DFI Lanparty UT X48 T3RS

RAM: OCZ 2x2 gigs 1333mhz DDR3 RAM

HARDDRIVE: Maxtor 80 Gig harddrive
Seagate 60 gig harddrive (I only use one harddrive at a time, I just tested this one)

Graphics Card: Ati Radeon Vapor-X 4870 1gig GDDR5


Thanks in advance
