    And all channels are set to auto detect in the BIOS ? I used to own a BX6R2, and can't remember any kind of trouble like that.

    Hi Dutch Woman. Next time you start a thread, please try and avoid using F**ked in the subject line.

    I'll let this one slide but next time, I'll have to move the thread to the moderators forum.

    Thank you for listening.

    I have ruined an IDE cable once.
    If your computer is stuck in the detecting hdd & cdrom part and the computer is beeping, it's most likely that you have a bad IDE cable.
