Question about ASUS A8V Deluxe Motherboard
It was time to replace my Win2K with XP, so I formatted a 120GB Western Digital and installed a fresh copy of XP. To my susrprise, it saw that I had the HD there and installed just fine. However, when I attached the original drive (with data and Win2K on it, the BIOS see's the second HD, but WinXP does not. I've tried everything I know but I am missing something. Do I need to install a Promise Controller for XP like I did for Win2K? How do I do that now that the OS is already fully installed???
Try to download a widows XP based driver for your Promise Controller from the manufacturer's website and install it. This is really necessary. If it does not solve the problem, you reinstall windows XP. When XP begins installtion it flashes a message like this: "Press F2 to install a third party driver......" Press F2 and insert the Promise controller driver in a floppy. This way it will work. (I hope so..) Note: Do not remove floppy untill Windows finishes installation
