Winxp instalation


hi,

There is not way to install a windows xp os without SATA drivers. If you don't want to use the floppy disk to make the os recognize the HDD, you can integrate the drivers in the Windows Xp installation Cd, using software like Nlite.
Another solution is to use a IDE HDD, the old kind with the 80 wire ribbon cable.

Os istallation problem


Hi Prashant

This will apply is you are using a SATA drive and are attempting to install Windows XP:

In the box your motherboard came in, there should be a 1.44Mb floppy disk (Also called a stiffy). This will have the driver for XP to be able to read your SATA controller. If you do not have this "stiffy", either contact the hardware manufacturer or check their website for a download.

When Windows XP setup starts, and you are greeted with the blue screen, press the "F6" button when prompted to do so - to make XP setup allow you to install a 3rd party driver SCSI or RAID controlled. This you have to do within a few seconds of setup starting, so make sure to look carefully. The message will appear in the bottom of the screen.

This applies for IDE / ATA HDD:

Ensure that the HDD is being properly picked up by the BIOS. If not, ensure that all connections are good. If they are, test with another, known good, HDD to check whether your HDD is not maybe at fault.

Hi my name ia rahul from india,mumbai my pc brnd new amd proccer,256mb ram,asus motherboard the problem is whic ever i install the softwae the system gets hangup


hi welcome to fixya! what particular system you are installing, is it XP sp1, XP sp2, or Vista? Configure first the CMOS before doing the the OS installation. Set everything to its default configuration before running the process. 256 MB of memory for Vista is not enough it is good only for XP sp1 or sp2. See to it that your HDD was properly connected and its not loosen. If still the problem persist, change the ATA HDD cable (it looks like a ribbon in color gray) into a brand new one, sometimes its one of the cause of hang-ups and change your CMOS battery also. If still you experience hang-ups feel free to ask a help from a service center near you. Good Day!

Changing motherboard


Since both boards use the same chipset (Intel 845), you shouldn't have any problem with components. (The one possible glitch will be the memory - some motherboards are a little picky.)
Keep in mind that you will likely have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall your operating system and programs, but sometimes you get lucky. (Even then, if you're running Windows XP, Microsoft is likely to ask you to reactivate.)

Good luck.

Vista drivers


Go to the Gigabyte website and check for Vista drivers based on the motherboard model #. If not available there use a program like aida32 or fresh diagnostics to identify the ethernet make and model and go to that manufacturer's site for the Vista driver. You may also be able to just explore the cd that came with the motherboard to find the ethernet driver folder and see if a Vista driver is there and manually install it without using the normal gui install interface like in XP.

Large hard drive


Yes it will. Mostly it is the operating system that will allow the drive to be see at its full size. Suggest you use Win XP home with at least SP1 but Win XP Pro with SP2 is faster & very stable. Also suggest you set the drive up with the Mfg's disk utilites. Bootable floppy or bootable CD. If using plain XP home you can still install the OS & than download a free trial of Partition magic which will allow you to combine any smaller partitions to get you up to you 250GB size. (only if you have a problem though.

A7V8X NOTHING HAPPENING,


When a power supply goes out the way yours did, it's going to fry the MB 99% of the time. So you're going to need a new MB. It's possible that you CPU is ok, but that could also go too. I would replace the MB first, then the CPU if that doesn't work.

Try reversing the connections so the new drive is detected as the primary master.
