Re: ASUS P5LD2 Raid 5 locks windows at MUP.SYS
A stab in the dark. Sound like the MB BIOS expects and is written to have the OS on the
IDE slot. After that I would add one SATA drive at a time to see if it matters and to see if one of the drives are causing the problem.

If you are having a problem booting safemode then Windows is corrupted and will need to be repaired/re-installed. You can insert the windows xp disc and re-boot the computer. It should ask you to boot from cd-rom drive. If it does not you will need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS for the cd-rom to be the firsst boot device. Once you are able to boot the Windows cd you can try to repair the windows installation if the repair does not work you will need to format and re-install windows. hope that helps.
your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])
If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.
If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..
1. Make sure you have all the discs included in your package.
2. After you power-up, strike del key to go to bios/system.
3. In boot selection, select DVD/CD ROM to boot first, HDD second and other if you wish..
4. Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart.
5. After pressing the tree (3), insert your CD/DVD installer to the drive..
6. Follow the instruction...
