Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

Lose driver I got window vista, ans I want to change for window XP. So I installed the window XP with the disk instalation. Every thing look fine until I check the system (panel control, system, Hardware) and I see that Universal Bus seri controller, SM bus controller and 6 others devices was not installed. Unfortunately, I don`t have the driver disk of the mother board. I guess that window didn`t install the driver of the mother board. The board looks like to be Asustek Model M2N M2X SE- So the quesrtion is where can I find the driver of the mothertnboard Thank for helping

Hello, My my motherborad is ASUS p5rd1-vm;RAM1GB and hard disk is PATA 80 GB but the HDD is having some kind of problem and the windows have shown a warning about it several times. Now i want to buy a...


Yes, it's compatible with the motherboard, no, it's not compatible with the XP install disk because it doesn't have SATA support. And since Asus doesn't provides it special driver needed (one that must be put on a floppy) it means that you simply cannot install XP on this disk.
All you can do is to obtain another PATA hdd what ever its size and install XP in it. Then put the new SATA disk in and use it to store all the installed programs and all your files on it. As a bonus you won't lose them if the new PATA disk fails or XP gets corrupted.
Or install Vista or 7 instead of XP, the have support for SATA disks

Hi I am having some trouble in reformatting my laptop. Their are two main issues with it. Its a HP Pavillion DV4-1540US..The first issue is that there is lot of screen flickering and green and pink colors...


The first issue sounds like a bad LCD. I can help you with the second issue. You didn't mention which Windows you are installing but because of the sata controller issue I will assume you are converting from Vista to XP. Here is how you do it: You will need to slipstream the sata drivers onto the XP installation disk. You will need to download these two programs: nLite, and CDburnerXP.

nLite is a program to slipstream the sata drivers to the XP install disc. CDburnerXP is a program you can use to copy entire disks and create and burn ISO images. Next you need to download the sata drivers for your laptop. Both ICH9 for Intel, and sata for AMD are HERE. Download the correct version for your laptop and save this link as it also has all the XP drivers for a DV4.

Put your XP installation disk in your computer and copy the disc to a folder using CDburner. Now start nLite and point it to that folder to reference it to an XP installation. When you get to the modify screen select add drivers, select entire folder and browse to the sata drivers you downloaded. Continue and tell it to create an ISO image. After that is complete you can go to the ISO you just created and double click it to burn a fresh installation disk using CDburner. Now you have an installation disk that will install XP. After XP is installed go back to the link I gave you to download all the XP drivers for your laptop.

Motherboard does not BOOT to windows


If you are running anything from windows XP upwards inc Vista
then you must re-install the operating system when you change the motherboard.

From your description that is the problem you are encountering.

You could place your windows disc in the cd rive and tell the computer to boot from that and try a "repair install"

If successful you will loose no date but will be asked to re-register with microsoft.

If your windows disk is original and not meant for an OEM computer that will not be a problem

Windows xp installation problem


You might need to use the "Floppy" version of the Driver upon install (if you know what the chipsets are. Most likely it's Intel and you can slip stream the driver files into a new XP CD.
However if a partition is formated from Vista and you attempt to install XP over it without formatting it, crash is almost certain - XP and Vista have different versions of NTFS.
If you want both XP and Vista on the same machine, ALWAYS install the older one first! i.e. XP first. And create only 1 partition in XP where you intend to install on.
Then install Vista afterwards with Vista created partition.

Install xp on vista home basic toshiba satellite L-40


Yes, Vista Home Basic is junk!

1.Vista is considered an upgrade, compared to Windows XP. Therefore, Vista is not just going to let you install over it.

2.You have to get your Windows XP drivers back.

This is a pretty intricate operation, but once you have detailed information, it becomes do-able.
Below is a link with detailed information, and concise clear illustrations. I felt it would be better to give you this link, to avoid any confusion, and/or misunderstanding of information from me.

Should get you on your way!

CANT GET WINDOWS XP PRO TO COPY FILES TO A GX280


The problem is the driver for the sata hard drive. You would need to get that from the dell site and put it on a floppy disk, then at the start of the windows install select to install that driver. I ended up just installing the rc version of windows 7 and it worked out fine.

Can't install windows XP on my KN8 ultra


I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here -
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=KN8+Ultra&pSOCKET_TYPE=Socket%20939
Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.
