Question about ASUS A8S-X Motherboard

2 Answers

Boot Problem Hi..I have a problem. To begin with, after I added the hard drive, dvd etc, and turned on the unit..it showed me an (Intel uCode Loading Error) and to press F1 to continue. Which I did , and was able to format my Sata HD and load in my Win XP oper. system.The unit would always boot up with the same message but I could access Windows only after I pressed the F1 key...Then I started having problems with IE exployer and so I decided to start out fresh again and format the drive, which i did. After that............ (If i just turn the machine on it goes to the ASUS Screen saying for setup press DELETE, for post press TAB when I try either..Nothing happens???). (If i turn on the machine while it's posting up and press TAB or DELETE it'll start to POST up and then stop after Identifying Master/Slave etc. and then hangup.I then decided to try and flash the BIOS to the latest version (rev 1009) ASUS had..I did and with the same results.I loaded in the original BIOS from the CD (rev 1004) still no change .I even cleared the CMOS with no affect, except to reset the clock. Any Ideas?? Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for adding a possible solution but here's the deal...
    The CMOS battery is brand new nothing is bulging and my bios chip is good..I'm fairly sure. This is what I did since the last post..
    #1. I remove the sata pwr cable from the hard drive and booted the machine....What I get is the post minus the sata drive ie. sees the 2 DVDs memory cpu and it's looking for the boot drive no Intel uCode error(upgraded to the latest bios revision & cleared the Cmos)
    # 2 If I re-connect the sata cable and turn on the machine it postup and sees the 2 DVDs memory cpu and the Maxtor 300 sata drive but then it hangs and won't go any further.
    I've gone into the Bios with the hope of tweaking the hard drive parameters but the AMI MOBO bios has no provisions for me to do this... Ya know whats funny...Before I formatted the hard drive everything was fine except for the uCode error.
    Now it's a nightmare..
    Help me Jesus...........

I might try a different hard drive, preferably one that isn't sata.  Just to help limit down the possibilities.

Try using a spare memory. Is the cmos battery ok? Your bios chip may be defective. Are their any buldging caps on the mobo?

Intel D102GGc2 shows disk read error when detached sata dvd writer and xp boot when attached the same


Hi. if you're getting the same 'disk read error' when the DVD drive is attached and detached, then the error relates to the hard disk, that you're supposedly trying to install XP onto.
Ultimately you want the board to boot the DVD drive first. A quick change to the 'Boot priority' in the BIOS should sort it.

HOW to install windows xp on intel dh61ho motherboad


Hello here is the homepage:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+6+Series+Chipset+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+DH61HO

In general, what you'll need to do is:
  • Turn off your computer.
  • Power on again
  • When you see the splash screen or BIOS menu (and before Windows starts to load), hit the Delete key.
This will typically either get you into a boot device menu or the BIOS settings where you should be able to select the device you want to boot from to adjust the boot order. In other words, your computer may normally try to boot first from the hard drive drive.But now you have to select to boot from the dvd drive. Save the changes, and then boot your computer again, this time without hitting any button and lay the windows disk in the dvd drive. If all goes according to plan, you should soon see a "Windows loading" message on your screen and press any key to install windows.You can follow the on-screen instructions to install Windows on your computer.
You also need to make a full format of the harddrive, and reboot again.

Look also in the manual how to setup the bios.

Here is some youtube video that shows how:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+install+windows+xp&oq=HOW+to+install+windows+xp&gs_l=youtube.1.0.0l10.1637.1637.0.3243.1.1.0.0.0.0.122.122.0j1.1.0...0.0...1ac.2.LqJatFrFwa4

When the installation is done, you have to install all the driver for the mainboard.Graphic,sound,chipset etc.

Good luck

Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS

1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Thanks for Choosing

Change the "master", "slave" jumpers in the back of the hard drive to the same config as the old one was, that's your problem. If you still have a problem, just run the drive on a seperate cable to the motherboard, then set the dvd drive to the opposite of whatit's set at now from the jumpers in the rear of the drive. Take out the battery frrom the board and let the cmos reset before powering back on.that's where the settings are stored.
