I am buidling my first computer, and I am ready to pull my hair out. Everything was going fine until I tried to install windows. After I installed windows and the system restarted I received the error: Enter location of Command.com. On further investigation I found that the hard drive will not boot. I tried to sys the drive several times and everything appeared to work, but it still would not boot. I ran fdisk again and formated the drive to FAT16 and now the drive WILL boot. Why would the disk not boot in FAT32 ???? The motherboard is a SE440BX-2 motherboard with a 500 P-III processor. The system will boot to a CD or a Floppy. I have ran scandisk and norton disk doctor and found no errors. HELP!
