    you set your BIOS to boot off removable devices and it still boots off C: ??

    you sure you saved the changes before exiting the BIOS :?:

    Go into ya BIOS and select the option that boots the A:/ drive 1st as options such as "CD/C/A" could mean that the floppy is bein' missed due to another device gettin' in 1st. :smokin:

    A lot you won't unless during the setup of XP you stipulated your pc as a "standard PC" and not let it setup as a ACPI compliant PC. :smokin:

    heres your problem: "IRQ 9 Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System"

    this is obviously one of those "ACPI compliant..." installs that should have been "Standard PCs"

    do the F5 thing after a format, coz even according to M$haft the process to change from acpi to standrd, or vice-versa, is possible, yet is nearly guaranteed to kill ones system, i think going from acpi to standard is worse too

    with the bios issue, i usually have a similar problem with drives under a few of my iwill-based PCs, running an NT-based OS

    it seems if the boot order is set by first boot=...
    second boot=...

    the best thing to do is set first to FDD and the rest disabled, this always works.

    however if u have one of those BOOT=a,c,scsi type of options, then i usually, set to that, and disconnect the HDD whilst i update bios...

    its most likely a video card drivers' fault
