Okay so i tried to put in an IDE DVD drive from my gaming PC to an older Dell Dimension (i believe its a 2600?). And apparently it didnt like it, and when it would boot it wouldn't recognize. So i popped the old drive back in (CD-ROM). Now it refuses that as well. Before, i could hit F1 to continue and boot to windows anyways, but yesterday it sat at a black screen saying ''Failure to read Drive 0'' and i can't get out of it. However, i can get into BIOS if i do so before letting it get into windows.
Any suggestions?
