    i've tried a cdrom from a different computer, but it did the same thing as the others.

    the win98 floppy wasn't able to install the drivers for the cdrom when it was booting. it would try to install the drivers and then say "no device found...aborting installation" so once it went through the pci bus scans and stuff and i'd get the a:\ prompt. It wasn't able to access the cdrom, i couldn't get the prompt to work.

    How exactly do you have your IDE channels setup (what drives and which are masters and slaves)?

    well, when the problem started, it was as follows:

    Primary IDE
    Master: WD 80g (Drive C & D)
    Slave: WD 80g (Drive E & F)

    Secondary IDE
    Master: LG 32x cdrw (Drive G)
    Slave: LG 52x cdrom (Drive H)

    As of right now, i've changed it up a bit. The HDD's are the same, i just took the slave offline because that's the one I have my personal files and backup files in.

    Secondary IDE
    Master: LG 52x cdrom (Drive D)

    all of the jumpers have been changed on them when i changed them up, so everythings fine there.

    Here's what I did before the problems started. Maybe this will help figure it out.

    My brother was having problems with his computer, he said it was real slow, etc etc. So, i went and tried to defrag his HDD but it was indeed very very slow. So, I decided to just reinstall windows for him fresh. I took out his HDD, because he only has one. I took his HDD to my computer, unhooked my slave cdrom and hooked his HDD into it's position. The computer was off when i did this. I booted up, everything was fine, I took all his personal files and saved them onto my F drive and then shutdown the computer, hooked my slave cdrom back up and went to install windows on his HDD at his computer. When i came back to my computer from doing that and turned it on, that's when the problems started. It booted to that WINXP page with the blue scrolling bar and i sat on that page with the thing scrolling for at least a good 30 or 40 seconds which was unusual enough for me to reboot 2 or 3 times until i got fed up and left them room with it booting. it did indeed boot up but it takes several minutes. so, that's what i had done before the problems started.

    ok, i'm going to try and load new drivers for the cdrom. I've downloaded them from LG and according to the directions I need to create a bootable disk to load these from, however it says that it needs to be done from win98 or win95 which i don't have running.


    how can i create a bootable disk to load these new drivers from?

    Thanks!


    here's the directions from LG's website:

    Note: If you have Windows 2000, ME, or XP already installed, you will need to create a
    bootable disk from another operating system like DOS, Win95 or Win98 in order to process this firmware update.
    Follow the steps below.

    1. Place: A blank floppy diskette in your 3.5" disk drive A:
    2. Double-Click: My Computer Icon on your desktop
    3. Right-Click: The drive letter that is the 3.5" drive.
    4. Choose : Format.
    5. Choose: Copy System Files Only, Click OK.
    6. Download the Firmware and Execution file to the same folder(ex: a:)
    7. Copy: The Firmware and Execution file to the new floppy diskette
    8. Let: The PC Make the disk bootable.
    9. Re-Boot your PC with the bootable disk in Drive A: (Note: you may need to change your boot sequence
    in the CMOS Setup in order to boot to drive A. Please see your motherboard manual for instructions or
    contact your PC manufacture for instructions on changing the boot sequence.)
    10. At the A:\\>jv2 jv2lg627(not include extension name) then press enter.

    If you know someone running Win98/SE get them to make the bootable disk or download one from http://www.bootdisk.com/ then be sure that your floppy drive is set to boot before your hard drive then just follow the rest of the instructions.
