Hello, Maybe this is common knowledge and I've just never heard of it... I built up a new PC yesterday using an Abit IP-35, Dark Raider mobo and a brand new WD Harddrive. Upon building the PC, I switched it on, without a DVD in Drive, just to check it was built up properly. After seeing this I got up to make a cup of tea, expecting to return to the no disk found message. However when I got back it was in the process of starting/installing Windows Server 2003... still quite hungover, I thought it a bit odd, wondered if it was a mobo feature, restarted it, with boot DVD in, went to create a partition and found that one had already been made for the full amount of disk space. So I'm wondering now that the hangover has cured, why is that?
