I just put together a new system with the abovementioned motherboard, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 Yorkfield, a GeForce GTX 280 and 2 gigs of Corsair XM3 memory. Unfortunately, my original hard drive with XP installed went bad somewhere between moving it from my old case to the new one (Thermaltake Armor). That's neither here nor there, but now I'm trying to boot the system from a Vista OEM DVD to install on one of my two remaining hard drives. The hard drive boots fine, but of course doesn't do anything for me since there's no OS on it. Then when I switch the boot priority to DVD first, it never gives an option to boot from the DVD on startup, instead going to the "windows 98 startup menu" the same as when the HDD is set as primary boot. Any help would be appreciated.
