I can not get that far in the set up program anymore to delete existing partitions. Only saw it the very first time.
I do not see the HDD check either when i run to Boot disk. It fails to load with the following " Setupreg.hiv" error code 4103 before i get anything much to work with.
I will create an XP SP3 disk and try that.
I do not get any options in the BIOS on a 700 series to change Sata to IDE. Actually all you get it in the Pheonix setup utility is:
MAIN =,you can change system time, add supervisor password, enable Parallel port, Mode ECP/EPP, PXE enable, Base I/O Address 378, DMA channel DMA3.
BIOS=Move drives to top or bottom of list
Exit+= Exit and save changes options.
That is all you can do in the set up utility. Not very much..
