*NEVERMIND, it tried to boot to a nonexistant disk*
Hello, I am new to the forms. I would like help with my HP Compaq DC7700, as after installing a 3tb secondary drive, it prompts me it found new hardware, shows the default 80gig drive, and the new 3tb. It's booting from the 80gig, last I checked. I press f1 to save changes, and it reboots. Now, without the hard drive, it prompts f1 again, so I press it and reboot. The drive is back. Basically endless looping, and the blue HP invent screen takes longer to load, too. Please help, as this is going to likely end up a network storage for me, and I don't want to toss a good computer. Otherwise, is there a command in BIOS just to bypass the screen? By the way, this was upgraded from XP Professional x86 (OS that came with the PC).
It boots fine with other hard drives, but the 3tb HDD works fine in other computers (dell optiplex 745), with the same OS, so it's not the HDD thats bad.
