One of my flock -a very experienced one is having loads trouble getting a operating system loaded onto a formatted drive.

This is he has done many times before with all the Win variants over the years

This time he is being balked at every turn.

F disk has been tried

An old Win start uo disk has been used

Currently the os cd loads files upto a point and then comes up with the messge 'no cd driver found' But of course the disk is loading stuff so why the message?

Just to be sure is it saying no CD drive or no drive found?

It seems to be something to do with the SATA/IDE config in the BIOS ClickHere might yield more info to try.

Will leave him to ponder the book for now.
