Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB.
There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port.
The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual.
All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu.
At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

Good luck rafiqbrush!
Thank you for using fixya.

    You stated you have window installed on both drives. Not good.

    Windows will restart because it does not know which windows it should load. I'm not going to list what the windows boot.ini should show for your XP SP2.

    While windows is installed on both drives.

    Of course each drive boots by them its self!

    Install one drive. Than format it with the windows CD.

    Shut down the system. Move the formatted drive to SATA port 3 & connect your drive with windows on it to port 1. Now try booting the system. Windows "will" run. Even though you may have the bios setup correctly windows still sees two separate working boot files & it will just restart. Windows see's a dual boot system & both windows are using the same name. (Will not work)! Only one drive can not have windows installed on it.



    You posted,

    (While both the HDD run well if i connecte separately).

    That means you have windows XP installed on both drives.



    Now if you can't understand all this than say so!

    Three ppl have answered you & everyone missed the mark because no one read all 3 of your post.

Is it possible to update the firmware of the HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22LS30 for use with double layered discs?


Install the latest chipset and sata drivers for your motherboard before you hook the sata DVD rom. Try hooking the DVD drive to another sata port, the HDD should be on SATA 1.

Make sure you've installed all the latest critical updates from Windows update. There's no chipset drivers available from Asus which means that the chipset should be supported by XP. Else the chipset in charge of the SATA controller is the SIS 964 chipset and you can find IDE and SATA drivers here : http://www.sis.com/download/. Can't hurt to give them a try but start with Windows update.

Refer to the motherboard manual to clear the BIOS settings (clear the RTC RAM in the manual).

What's the exact model of the hard drive and of the DVD drive ? Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. Expand disk drives and CD/DVD drives to find the model ID's.

While you're in the device manager check that there's no tagged device in the list (with a yellow or red icon).

I have an asus p5rd1-vm motherboard. I found problems on installing windows xp using sata hdd. Please help me to install windows xp2 as i am not using floppy drive.


The Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver. You need a SATA driver of a floppy disk or turn off SATA native driver in the BIOS.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to Install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive
I suggest you install SP3 (service pack 3) rather than SP2, it contains the latest bug fixes. The SP3 cannot be installed from a floppy, it can be downloaded from Microsoft, it is a large file approx 300Mb, I suggest you install it from a CD if you can borrow one.

Error code


Apparently the XP Pro CD you are using is pre-SP2, thus causing the error. With XP RTM and SP1, you need to supply the proper SATA drivers for the chipset on the motherboard since there is no built-in support for SATA drives. You can download the drivers from http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Downloads/DownloadFile.aspx?catid=1&driverid=2214&areaid=2&LanID=0

During the XP setup you will need to press F6 to install these driver before attempting to copy the XP files to the drive. Or you could make a custom XP CD using the directions at http://maxeasyguide.blogspot.com/2008/04/preparations-for-winxp-installation-cd.html that has these SATA drivers already slipstreamed into the installation procedure.

Or if you know someone who has the WinXP Pro SP2 CD, you could borrow that for the install.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

AHCI


choose RAID mode.. that should enable AHCI. (as per wikipedia) on your motherboard so that means.. that if you're installing the os on this hdd you may want to use the raid driver for it which is likely what's in the ASUS cd you got so your os get to use the hdd as it's meant to be used.

you may also want to make sure you're using the right sata connector on your motherboard: check page 33

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-VM


the problem could laso lay in your cables.. it's know the average may be affected by faulty SATA cable or faulty SATA power cable (powersupply issue)

you may also want to run a backup of your data and then run a defrag and a checkdisk on the drive, and it's probably also worth it to rung Seatools (download from this page: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/ ) to check the health of your hd.

Also try to update the SATA controller drivers or the motherboard chipset
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-VM

lastly, post the results of your tests here on fixya or better yet: in here: http://forums.seagate.com for further follow up.

try each recommendation one at a time and then test the speed of your hd to see if there's improvement.. make sure you back up before you do anything drastic.

good luck (it took me 2 hours to pos
