all is well in billville

Hi Bob had to many minds,so forgot about resetting the bios you were a big help as was a bit of sleep.

I reset the bios, (had to do it on the MB)

could post, reviewed the boot order and reset to the proper drive

system booted

self reset/updated the drivers

I'm using this machine now.

will add the gigabyte drivers shortly

will likely have to redo some misc, noticing the mouse is a bit jumpy

but again all is well

as an fyi, MS took the MBR off the win7 64 upgrades when they found too many folks buying upgrades for new systems. I found this out after the fact, so it is sort of crippled, but some time soon i'll set up a bootable CD or something should this happen again, maytbe make an image on a backup that I can rewrite if problems down the line.
