After the external build of my desktop computer, today the time arrived for completing the build by assembling all the hardware into the computer case and installing the OS.
First to go in- Hitachi SATA 500 GB 3.5 inch hard disk drive. This case is pretty awesome since there is no need for screws to attach the hard disk. Just add the plastic sliders and insert the bracket and you are done.
The big cheese! Motherboard, with CPU cooler and RAM go in as a single unit. Had a bit of hard time with putting in all the metal standoffs to support the board but everything else went pretty smoothly.
All connected up and everything looks nice and dandy. Word of advise to fellow builders – make sure to use the manuals provided with the mother board and CPU case. Trial and error is not a strategy for this step.
And here is our final setup. Its strange that all the work done for the past hour or so is hidden completely away. The case looks exactly as before I assembled the hardware inside it. Time to fire it up.
Ahh, the familiar BIOS error. Its the same error we saw when we did the external build. Fortunately I have a hard disk connected so its time to do some BIOS setup and OS installation.
