I've put together a back-up computer using a SOYO K7ADA Version 1.0 motherboard and 1 gig Duron CPU. The computer boots up great, recognizes all hardware. But, I can't get my OS to load. I've tried Windows 98 and Windows ME. Neither work. I've tried using the Maxtor hard drive formatting software, formatting through MS DOS, and letting the OS format the drive--nothing works.

Interesting point: the motherboard has a special "section" in BIOS where you can set the board to NORMAL or OPTIMIZED use. The OS only loads under OPTIMIZED use--unfortunately that disables the on board sound and USB interface and it won't let me turn them on once loaded.

Any ideas???
