Question about ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard

New ASUS A8V-MX motherboard will not boot to CD or HD with XP

I bought a new ASUS AV8-MX motherboard to replace a bad AV8-MX motherboard. I installed a socket 939 AMD 3800+ in the motherboard. The bios recognizes the cpu, memory, dvd and floppy. However, after I  set the 1st boot device to the HD or to the DVD with a bootable copy of XP, the unit will not boot. It starts coming up and after detecting the hardware, etc., it just stops with a blank screen and the - flashing at the top left. It never says "Press any key to boot from CD." or if I set the HD as the 1str device, it does the same. According to the ASUS site, version 0210 should work with my chip. This board has bios version 0405.

    Hi amaysn! What happens when you don't have the XP disk in your system, and just let it boot from your primary HDD (even when there is no OS installed) ? It really sounds like a bad CD or there was a OS installed before you bought this HDD.. Because the bios is giving you all the right numbers I don't think we need to search the problem there..

The first thing is to make sure that your CD/DVD drive has the windows disk in it. Also check drive C which is where the windows will be installed. It may require that it is hard formated. Hard formatted means "format x /u" [format-space-drive to be formatted-space-right slash-u]. This will place the drive for "windows xp sp2", all of it, to one pass of zeroes. So, once we have a clean drive C and the installation disc is inserted into the CD/DVD drive, you may proceed to install. You will need to find "install" or "setup" and start it on he "RUN" mode. Any questions or help get back to me. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)

Asus A8V-VM Motherboard coming with SATA RAID option, thats why you could not see the detected HDD in system BIOS. But you can see the the detected HDD in RAID BIOS. You can enter to RAID BIOS that will pop up after system BIOS. If you are using old version of WinXP it will not detect the RAID controller of you motherboard. Thats why you cannot able to install WinXP. While you booting from WinXP CD press F6 key when the WinXP installer prompted for third party driver. Copy the RAID driver provider in driver CD to a Floppy Disk (INF file) and insert it, hit enter to continue the installation. If you are using WinXP Service pack 2 or higher you do not need this step it will automatically detect the HDD.
