    My task is to put together parts that a friend bought after his many failed attempts:

    Intel D845WN mobo
    p4 1.7ghz
    128mb ram generic
    ati all in wonder 9700 pro 128mb
    70gb Maxtor
    Ricoh DVD/CDR drive
    Sony cd\rw

    All the parts went together fine.
    Tried to install Win XP home and keeps giving me error about files not being able to be copied to hd from cd. CD works fine in other systems.
    Checked out CD drives and someone pushed some of the pins on the connector in. So i had to resolder those.
    Tried again and still same problem.

    Anyone think the mobo might have gotten screwed up?
    This is the second mobo this guy has gotten.
    the first one was messed up when he first got it.

    step 1 - find a cdrom drive that has not been mangled
    step 2 - use said drive in above system

    Tried swapping cdrom drive and cables. still same prob.
    I'm thinkin maybe the cdroms shorted something out on the mobo.
