Asus A7n8x Deluxe Sata Issue

Still, it will not work using the SATA slots that are on the mobo itself. I don't think this will help with the SATA problems, but post it in case someone else has the same IDE problems I had. Here's my specs: Athlon XP 2200+ ASUS A7N8X Deluxe rev 2.0 512MB Kingston KVR400X64C3/512 40gb Samsung SV4002H 5400rpm MSI GeForce FX 5600 VTDR128 Generic PSU 300W (2A in +5VSB) TEAC W58-E I am looking at a Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKB 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 3.5" . http://freedownloaddevelopment.com/asus-a7n8x/asus-a7n8x-e-deluxe-owners.html

Upon installing the video drivers (for a Powercolor Radeon 9600 Pro 256MB), the PC wouldn't even boot, giving the error "load needed dlls for hal".

But it worked so I did not change it. Stew Antony Holloway Feb 26, 2004, 06:30am EST Reply - Quote - Report Abuse Private Message - Add to Buddy List >>Re: ASUS A7N8X single SATA HDD as boot dev'. If I were you, I would either get a newer motherboard or get a PCI RAID controller card. Switching back on I went into the bios settings and when I went to the boot sequence lo and behold both drives were there but the difference was that the new

Coincidence or not, this BIOS was released about a week after I told them that their 1006 BIOS would not POST with PC3200 RAM. How do I make it work?OK the file needed are called Si3112r.inf Si3112r.sys Si3112r.mpd SIISUPP.VXD TxtSetup.oem place these on a floppy once you have found them on the CD or download making progress with SATA drive. But if you have Maxtors or Seagates or whatever these manufacturers probably have there own drive tools which would do the job.

Will I encounter the hanging problem ?4. I see SATA RAID jumpers are enabled in my mobo. I've managed to install the operation system, Windows 2003. Make Google your friend too.

When try to install Windows XP Pro w/sp1, I get random errors, I suppose that is memory related issue, but I'm not sure. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/asus-a7n8x-deluxe-winxp-sata-problems.10731/ I have tried various boot orders in bios but to no avail. According to Asus and some other web sites, SATA is not a SCSI device and there is no bios setting for booting it, apparently SATA smiply has a higher boot priority How do I make it work?Oops sorry I just read your other post I think you tried what I said but anyway it is the only thing I can think of

I believe that is an nForce 3 based board? check my blog When you boot you should press F4 to enter the Raid setup. Are people sure that this "A7N8X-Dlx R2.0 Uber 1005 Sata Enhanced" BIOS is the way to go? I am sure they have one for your board.

Is there someone who can help me? I'm not sure if you can run a single SATA drive on this board. That would more than double by capacity and give me the option to create a larger C:\ partition. this content I've updated the BIOS to "A7N8X-Dlx R2.0 Uber 1005 Sata Enhanced" from http://homepage.ntlworld.com/michael.mcclay/ which went smoothly.

Want to enjoy less advertisements and more features? I tried both headers with just the 500gb and then both SATA drives.I am choosing the XP/server 2003 over NT 4.0 and 2000 option. For my DVD drive, I am using the standard windows drivers.

Anyone got any suggestions?

my system: AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Asus A7N8X-Deluxe 2.0 HDD Maxtor DiamondMax Plus9 160GB SATA <9ms, 7200RPM, 8MB Cache 1024 Kingston Memory DDR-Dimm, PC-3200 Asus Radeon 9600XT, 128MB JOKER JOKE Mar Then it sits there with "Starting up windows" in the bottom left of setup screen but does nothing (maybe goes on to say it can't find a hdd, dunno not patient or my CD..IE trying to load XP-Pro onto SATA drive."I can't be exactly sure what you are doing or you mean by "will not boot from floppy or CD".What floppy or There are 0 registered and 904 anonymous users currently online.

Sometimes it gets as far as booting from windowsXP CD but then crashes after "setup is analysing your system". But after format (i tried quick and slooooow options) setup just says windows cant install to the drive cos its either not a real drive or is knackered (not quite those I no longer receive that prompt during POST. have a peek at these guys Login now.

Disconnect/unplug all devices, and remove any media from devices that cannot be disconnected ... I'd prefer to do a fresh install rather than bring over all the trash I have the registry. This however was my first experience of sata drives.Asus mobo WD 250gb Sata WD 80GB IDE Win XP Pro I had a similar problem to yours when upgrading my sons system. I am running Windows XP Home, AMD Athlon XP 3200 processor with 4 gigs of RAM and A 500 watt power supply.

How do I make it work?I have a similar problem...... I tried playing with SATA/RAID/ACHI (i think?) settings in the SATA IDE controller option but so far no joy. This will take care of your problems and show any SATA HDD's you have connected in XP. I haven't upgraded to the 1007 until I hear that someone else is running Kingston PC3200 RAM and can the board to POST.

Sata working perfectly and the old ide drive ready for some extra storage if required. Follow the instruction that will 100% fix ur problem. To flash the BIOS, I used a boot-disk image available at the aforementioned website. sata raid ports are more than enough to identify the 2 hard drives without any problems.Thanks and RegardsRafales Edit Reply Quote & Reply Ulrich Moderator Posts : 95757 Level :

Anyhow, any help/recommendations you have would be greatly appreciated. I'm using an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe mobo with 1007 bios that came on it, as well as a Western Digital WD1200JD serial ata drive. Aug 6, 2005 #13 mikeyboy TS Rookie well heck I have the same MB right now with sata dvd burner and sata 250GB drives, and the only way i have ever BTW i have set the jumper so the drive runs at sata as that board is not sata2 and i have been assured it is backwards compatible.
