Question about Biostar M7NCD ULTRA Motherboard
Hi! I have a Biostar M7NCD Ultra mobo, Athlon 1800+ cpu, 1.2g memory, and 80g Seagate SATA drive. I tried to install Windows on the SATA drive but i got a message saying that Window could not detect any drives. The BIOS displayed the drive during POST. It is not a new drive. It has been reformatted and partitioned using Partition Magic. I was using a 40g Maxtor IDE drive earlier and Windows could read the SATA drives 1 and 2. Also, after the failed Windows installation on the SATA drive, I tried to revert to my old 40g Maxtor IDE but the PC hangs up. I tried re-installing the OS on the IDE and the installation would be uninterrupted. However, when it got to the part wherein Windows is finalizing the set-up, it would hang. Same thing happens when I try to repair the installation. I tried installing on a 40g Excelstor IDE but the same thing happens. The PC hangs-up. I had to re-install the OS because the display was flickering on and off and then freezing. Can anyone out there help me?
You would need to make a floppy disk with the sata drivers on them for windows to use during the installation so it can recognise the drive... assuming you don't have memory problems that is...

Try other memory or if you have 2 dimms take one out and try same to both dimms

Could be that your hard drives are bad and/or Windows CD.
