Question about Abit KV8 Pro Motherboard
I have a KV8 PRO that has been happily running with a Hitachi diskstar as a SATA drive for over two years. Without any hardware or software changes it now comes up with the missing or corrupt SYSTEM/CONFIG message. When you try to repair or reinstall XP it no longer recognises that a hard disk exists. Any clues?
You need to go on BIOS and and place the SATA as first boot device. Just extra info.

Hi, this problem sounds to me like you have a drive failure, it could be that the active partition is corrupted, if so you need to run a bootable repair program. you can purchase repair disks on ebay [in computers & IT software] for about $6.00. At that cost it is worth a try. The other options are run the XP repair console from the second prompt and see if that will do the trick, last option and only in desperation = replace the drive.
