MB-AOpen AP5T, 233MMX, 200W PS
I'm replacing a possibly bad hard drive (4 G) with a Maxtor 30 G (7200 rpm)drive and I can't get the thing to boot.
I'm booting with diskette.
It starts to post, gets to listing the drives, then recycles and starts over again. It will do this as long as I let it. It doesn't matter whether the old or new HD is connected.
Plugged into the power supply are the MB, a floppy, a CD, and a HD.
By uplugging the new hard drive, I was able to get it to boot to the A:\ drive once, but without a HD, where do you go from there?
I was also able to hit the Del key and get the bios menu up, but after a few moments, it restarts.
So, is it likely the PS is too small? No good?
