Question about ASUS P5RD1-VM Motherboard
I finally completed assembling the PC, started it up and I was able to update the BIOS settings, rebooted and here comes another issue. When I tried to install XP, it does not recognize the hard drive. I decided to use an old hard drive from another PC with Windows XP Home complete with updates installed on it and my newly built computer does not recognize the hard drive. Before I can do this with my other systems, I just have to reformat the hard drive and I was able to install a fresh copy of Windows. Any suggestion?
It is rare that an IDE drive will not be detected during Windows XP setup. Try the following steps:
1) Verify that all connections are solid. The IDE cable is secured at the drive as well as the motherboard. The power supply is connected to the drive.
2) Enter the BIOS setup and verify if the drive is recognized there. If not, there is a connection problem.
3) If you are using any type of RAID, even if the drive is simply connected to a RAID controller, you will have to load those RAID drivers via floppy during the install process in order for your drive to be detected by the Windows installer.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
