Specs: Windows XP, Core 2 Duo
Hi, I am trying to assemble a new system. I have purchased an Asus Motherboard P5QC with Intel Core 2 Duo E8400. I have made all the connections but I seem to have multiple problems. Firstly the keyboard is not responding. It does not show an error at bootup but it just doesnt resping. Example, when I get the OS installation screen at bootup, the Keyboard doesnt respond so I cant do anything. Secondly, during startup it says no Hard Disk found.
What can be the problem? I have assembled a few systems in the past so I know what I am doing but this problem just left me confused.
Thanks in Advance...

USB keyboard? Switch over to the PS/2 port.

Hard disk not found? You need to have a floppy drive installed & the SATA drivers on a floppy. As soon as setup starts, watch the bottom of the screen for "Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party driver..."

Just press F6 & follow the instructions.
