SOURCE: inspiron 531 wont boot up.

If yo are sure that you have a working operating system on your hard disk , and this error started after you (probably) defaulted the Bios settings or something else did ....Than I think the lack of sata raid driver makes the reading of your hard disk impossible ..To fix this ..either try to reinstall the operation system and during it ..choose to add a 3rd party driver (look for raid driver on your motherboard cd ..or on the manufacturer's support site ) ..or ..just get into Bios again ..look for the HDD in the advanced options ..and select the hdd 0 ..and eliminate the achi feature ..and replace it with sata as ide ..or compatible ..and save settings with F10 and restart ..It will make the hdd visible ..and support installation if it has non ...or just boot up ..but will work as IDE and not raid ..

move the sata connection for your bootable HDD to another port like 3 or 4 and the bios will detect then run bios setup to boot from the sata 3 or 4 and it works like normal, must be a bug in sata 1 and 2. had same issue trying to install win7 x64. Win 7 refuses to detect sata DVD drive, moved it on the MB and it installed fine.

TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

I can't use HDD sata on mainboard ASUS P5RD1-VM


Things need to be turned on in your bios patrohi. This is why windows didn't boot to the SATA. You need to use your manual & make sure the, Serial ATA Controller is [Enabled]
Within the Advanved menue under SouthBridge Configuration.
At the Main menue the SATA drive should be listed.
Boot settings need to change as well. At Boot Settings Configurations. Make sure your SATA drive is listed.
Boot order should list like, Floppy 1st, CDROM 2nd, SATA 3rd. The SATA will not list as a SATA but the model number of the SATA drive. Once all these settings are set save & exit. Your drive should show up for work & the windows CD should load.

Sata DVD Ausus using K8V-MX


TRy to load the "optimized bios default setting" in your bios setup. If not solve the problem maybe in your windows issue.

try to boot up windows in safe mode and then start it normally and let the windows fixed the problem on it.

if still problem exist maybe you need to repair your windows installation using the new SATA DVD to resolve problem regarding the issue. or reinstall it. (Note: important files was no guarantee to retain, backup files when doing this).
