OK i need to pick your brains. Puting together a system with a k7s5a, Duron 800, WD HD 30 gig, 256 mg pc133, sansung 52x cdrom.

Problem can't find HD on boot. But if i put in my xp install cd it find the HD and can format it. Install process starts and everything seems fine. When it goes to the first restart it can't find the harddrive again.

What i have already done:

cleared the coms
tryed a different ide cable(2 of them) they work in other rig so they are good
Chack and recheck jumps
tryed HD in other rig and it works fine

the board has been sitting in the case for about a month and worked fine before that.

ant ideas?
