    Sorry about not replying sooner. Yes it was in the Boot Menu. I figured it out, I had to disconnect the extra usb cable for the front usb then plug my blu-ray/rom drive into that slot. I'm kind of doing this blind as the book that came with this motherboard doesn't have a diagram that tells what is what. I haven't bothered trying out those front ports on here yet as they're plenty in the back.

    Thank you for your help I'm now on a search for a diagram.

    This is in the Boot Menu? (Not to insult you. Use the Right Arrow key, and highlight BOOT on the top of the main menu. Press the Enter key) In the Boot menu use the Down Arrow key and highlight Boot Device Priority, press the Enter key. Not listed there? Then come back and tell me.

Your not giving enough info..
Have you replaced the motherboard ?
Are you useing one or two IDE cables. ?
If you are useing one cable, the hard drive should be set to master and the cd dvd drive should be set to slave.
If two cables are used, set the Hard drive to master and the other drive two slave or cable select.

Diagram for the pins of the USB ports on the P5N7A-VM motherboard?
Doesn't show it in the Motherboard Manual?

I'd like you to download the Motherboard manual from Asus Support.
Why?
1.Your Motherboard Manual may not be as clear as the PDF file Motherboard Manual, you can download from Asus Support.
Perhaps the type, and print are smudged.

2.With a PDF file you can enlarge the motherboard schematic. Enlarge the USB headers for the motherboard, the size of this page if you like!

3.Allows both of us to 'Be on the same page', so I can show you where the USB port pins connect to on the USB header. (On the motherboard)

Here is Asus Support, and the Downloads page,

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

Go the upper left of the page under the white Downloads, and left click once in the Input Model to Search, box. Keep your mouse cursor in the box. Type P5N7A-VM

In the box below it, click on the blue down arrow on the right side of the box. In the drop down list click on Manual.
Now go below the box, and click on - Search Info

On the next page click on P5N7A-VM that's in blue.
When the small window comes up -Please select your operating system, go below and click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box. (Select OS)
Click on WinXP. [Doesn't matter what Operating System you choose]
Now click on Select

At first it will state 0 files found. Give it 2 seconds and the files will pop up.
Go to the bottom of the page, and click on Global, (Green), under the heading - Version E3921

Type in the letters/numbers you see. If English letters are shown, they are to be Capital letters. Click on Submit.
In the small window that comes up, (Opening E3921_P5N7A-VM_manual.zip), click on the small circle to the left of - Save File.
(If there isn't a green dot in it already)

Now go below, and click on OK.
This is a Zip file. If you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, this file will be saved to your desktop screen.
(Start>My Documents)
In either place Double-click on the file name. In the next window go up to the top left corner, and click on - Extract All Files. Then click on Next, Next, and Finish.


Page 1-10, (Chapter One- Page 10), shows the motherboard schematic.
Bottom of the motherboard in the direction shown in the schematic.
USB78, USB910, and USB1112 are for Front USB ports
(Under the PCI 2 slot)

Page 1-34 has the Pinouts for these USB headers. (Item 7 on the page)

This page from PINOUTS.RU shows you the diagrams of various USB connectors,

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;
http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=P5S800-VM

Cheers!

Motherboard does not BOOT to windows


If you are running anything from windows XP upwards inc Vista
then you must re-install the operating system when you change the motherboard.

From your description that is the problem you are encountering.

You could place your windows disc in the cd rive and tell the computer to boot from that and try a "repair install"

If successful you will loose no date but will be asked to re-register with microsoft.

If your windows disk is original and not meant for an OEM computer that will not be a problem

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.
