Hello, I had a problem with my old MB so I replaced it, but now I got new Gigabyte GA-EP41-UD3L.
now my problem is that I can get to bios with no problem. I can install Windows again no problem, but PC can't boot from HDD.
On a first try I sucessfully booted up from HDD and PC worked fine, but than again I got the MB screen there just for like 45sec and nothin is happening.
So I tried to boot up from CD, I just didn't.
So everything works I tried all your tests and no result. Computer is slow and can't boot up...
When I get afer the MB screen there's : Verifying DMI Pool Data and nothing than it switches to boot up from CD.

I even tried Win 7 enterprise result.

Please can anybody help me?

Please note that Windows Vista and Windows 7 requires SATA hard drive!

IF you have a new motherboard it's better to use a new SATA hard drive then install Windows on it

Ok but still I've got the Win XP there doesn't matter if it's SATA or not...
Thanks for your help.
Looks like I've solved it....I'll change HDD.
