built a pc, A7N8X deluxe, AMD 3200+, Seagate sata 120g hd, samsung dvd/ cdrw combo. On initial boot, CPU is recognised as 2500+, hard drive is not recognised, dvd/cdrw is primary master, displays Warning CPU has changed. First time doing this, any help appreciated. thanks.

to start HD needs to be primary master. change that and first and see what happens.

i really need an edit function. missing commas and extra "and[s]" indeed.

The Front side bus speed (FSB)in the BIOS must be set to 200 it is probably set to 133 or 166 that is why the processor is shown as a 2500+.

Had the same problem agree with bremner I have an AMD 3000+ on the same board initially the CPU was shown as a 1300 setting needed to be 166 for my CPU.

You need to load the SATA drivers from a floppy when windows asks for them By pressing F3 and inserting the floppy so that the HD can be recognised.
