Hi, you will need to load the sata raid drivers when installing the OS. Some off the older versions of xp will not have these, when windows is installing it will ask if you need to install a 3rd party raid driver press F6. later on it will ask you to insert the raid driver disk. which you may have to do/make yourself if you haven't already got one.

hello ! 

Thats wired is it so  ? ok  go to your computer  set up and  see what's the booting order .

If it starts with cd  rom first  reset to boot from hard disk first  ie its should be in this order 

1, hard disk
2, cd rom
3 floppy disk 

good luck

New sata hard drive fitted, now says no audio deviec ,so no sound


If you just added the sata and reformatted the drive with a new copy of the Operating System you will need to reload the sound drivers located at MSI's web site in there drivers and download section.

Can't install windows XP on a new 500GB Hard Disk


go to the manufacturers website and see what bios updates there are ? If any relate to recognizing hard drive capacity then it will be worth while installing the update onto the motherboard.

If not then check your motherboard for enabling LBA and if you read the manual it should explain what each option is for.

Also might be worth while slip streaming your xp installation disc with the sata drivers for your motherboard ( the sata drivers you can get from your motherboard manufacturers website, download and extract them and then use nlite to combine the sata drivers with the xp disc and re burn the xp disc ensuring to make it bootable )

Nlite website

Seeing as you are combining drivers it may be worth while getting all the other drivers ie network card, graphics, audio etc and combing that with your bootable xp disc.

I have a winfast 761GXK8MC motherboard. I am using a athlon 2800 CPU, and a SATA hard drive. when I install windows 98 it keeps locking up. then it says "child devices are keeping it from fully starting...


i doubt sata technology is supported by windows 98, you need to use windows 2000 at least. microsoft, unfortunately, does not support windows 98 anymore. the only other option is for you to check on your motherboard's manufacturer's website for windows 98 drivers. you could also try ide cd drives.

Asus m2n-mx se plus windows xp wont boot


All you need is the hard drive manufacture's setup software. Flashing you're bios is not the answer. On each drive (SATA & IDE) is the name & model number. Go to the Mf's site & download the free setup software, tools & utilities. Most sites will list software you can download to creat a bootable floppy disk or software to creat a bootable CD. Run the software on the SATA drive. Than unplug the SATA data cable & connect one IDE at a time. Again down load the Mfg's setup software. Do the same for the other IDE. Disconnect the data cable for the IDE drives. Do a fresh install of windows. (DO not allow windows to format the drive)! Just install windows & the motherboard drivers. Than update windows. Durring reboot press & hold the power on button on the PC untill it powers off. Connect the two IDE drives. Check the pin settings on the IDE drives. Set AS; Primary IDE drive 1 as master with a slave. Set IDE two as a slave drive.
Check the bios Boot setting. Make sure the SATA drive is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the PC. Windows should boot just fine.

Good Luck!
Still have an issue, post the trouble here with a description.
