Well the new HDD arrived. I went into setup setting the DVD as 1st boot device, and the HDD as the second.
I am trying to boot off the 11.04 ISO, not set as a startup disk, just a plain ISO.
"Reboot and select the proper Boot device, or insert boot media in selected Boot device and press a key."
Hit "space" bar and the above request is displayed once more??
HDD is 500 GB SATA Seagate. SATA and motherboard cables connected. Connection to MB is #1 and DVD is #2.
Must be something in the way BIOS is configured?
