Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

Can't get Windows to Load

This is the second A8N32 that I have received (RMA'd the first). Both have had similar problems where we can't install Windows XP. We either get write errors or it hangs during the install. Have swapped out the CPU, Hard drive, CD/DVD, and Win XP disk - all to no avail. All ideas and help would be appreciated!

Over the years I?ve had odd installation problems like this caused by: -defective or incorrectly configured hard drives being written to. -defective or incorrectly configured optical drives copied from. -problem RAM or processors. -an older BIOS that needs to be updated. -unresolved motherboard issues. I?ve generally ignored Microsoft?s hardware compatibility listing when it comes to general purpose workstations; however, I have had several occasions when non-certified hardware simply not work. I poked around Asus?s web site and noted that there are no Vista drivers or certifications listed for this model. If you have gone through and eliminated the hardware as a source of the problem you may in the end have to forgo the upgrade. For this very reason I have decided not to upgrade any of our workstations to Vista, not even the newer ones.

Misssing partmgr file how can I load this thanks


To resolve this issue, start the computer from the Windows XP CD, start the Recovery Console, and then use the Bootcfg.exe tool to rebuild the Boot.ini file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
  2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
  3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
  4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
  5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
  6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER.
  7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
  8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:
    1. When you receive a message that is similar to the following message, press Y: Total Identified Windows Installs: 1

      [1] C:\Windows
      Add installation to boot list? (Yes/No/All)
    2. You receive a message that is similar to the following message: Enter Load Identifier This is the name of the operating system. When you receive this message, type the name of your operating system, and then press ENTER. This is either Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition.
    3. You receive a message that is similar to the following: Enter OS Load options When you receive this message, type /fastdetect, and then press ENTER.

      Note The instructions that appear on your screen may be different, depending on the configuration of your computer.
  9. Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console. Your computer restarts, and the updated boot list appears when you receive the "Please select the operating system to start" message.

Logitech cordless mouse is not working.


It could be the receiver is bad or the driver is not properly installed. Try to uninstall/reinstall the driver. Try also connecting the receiver into different USB ports of your computer

If same problem occurs, try installing the driver and connect the receiver into another computer to isolate the problem. You can uninstall the software after that.

If same thing happens, then contact the manufacturer to RMA the device.

Have a great day!

A8N32-SLI Deluxe - Can not Load 'ASUS UPDATE' fro CD


It's not you. Asus's program from the CD doesn't function as you might except. You'll need to download, ASUS Update V7.06.02 Install Program for Windows 2000/XP/2003 & 64bit Windows XP/2003 within Bios Utilities. And flash your Bios from a floppy. Than download the Bios version you want. Having trouble getting the file to unzip? Download again but this time choose a different site. Like (Global) instead.
Luck!
