wanted to add 2 things, maybe it would be easier to buy a new hard drive? maybe I won't get that error if the hard drive doesnt have an OS. Thoughts?
Also- my motherboard has an 8 pin power connector (i think it had a little tab blocking the last 4?), and my power supply has 4 + 4. the 1st 4 matches perfect to the left side and the other 4 on my power supply "can" fit in the slots, they arent shaped the same tho as the sockets, but doesnt need to be forced in. (like the house shape holes can fit into the square holes) Not sure if that matters, or if i got a wrong power supply (i dont think so, its an ATX)
