Question about ASUS K8N-E Deluxe nVidia nForce3 250 Socket 754 DDR ATX Motherboard 3-in-1 Combo (MK8NECOMBO)
My PC doesn't boot when my Maxtor 750GB SATA II disk is connected. Though, it works fine (detected as a removable device on Ubuntu) if I plug it after the SCSI splash screen. When my HDD is plugged in at boot, the boot procedure stop at this screen:
SiI 3114 SATALink BIOS Version 5.0.39
Copyright (C) 1997-2004 Silicon Image, Inc.
3 MAXTOR STM3750330AS
So the HDD seems to be recognized...
I think I have tried all the bios config possibilities. The current config is as follow:
Advanced -> Chipset -> Onboard Device
VIA 1394 Enable Disable [Enabled]
Silicon Image Mode [SATA Mode]
Mac Interface [Enabled]
Onboard LAN Boot ROM [Disabled]
Internal SATA IDE Interface [Enabled]
RAID Option ROM [Disabled]
Details on my HW:
Motherboard: ASUS K8N-E Deluxe / ACPI Bios Revision 1012 BETA 007
Proc: Athlon 64 3200+
Drive: MAXTOR STM3750330AS
Thanks for your help!
Try Hirens Boot CD. It has a lot of programs on it to detect format etc.
I think your hard drive has a missing or corrupt MBR and it needs to be replaced.
When I have had a hard dive not recognized I hve used Super Fdisk to format and reset hard drive.
On the boot disk
