Now that I have the hardware installed (cpu, memory, floppy, dvd/rw, and hdd) and have hopefully correctly connected the necessary wiring, what should I see on the monitor if all goes well when I turn it on for the FIRST time?
This is my very first build so I wanted to start a post for help if (and being a pessimest I know I’ll need it) and when I need it.
Do I have to do anything to get the BIOS to come up…assuming the mobo is happy.?
What do I need to do in the BIOS?
I’ll be installing Windows XP Home OEM from NewEgg.
Wish me luck…I’m gonna need it…and standby for more questions…Please!
