Boot up problem

I just install a p4m900m2 mother board and cpu. I use my old disk drive with xp operating system. It would not boot up. It comes to the screen where it ask you to chose safe mode or other modes but everytime you choose one it comes back to the same thing.

Re: boot up problem

Did you go into your bios and reset with factory settings. Also did you try to boot up with the windows xp installation disk. Try that and let me know what happens. Are you sure the hard drive is ok too. let me know if you get it going if not get back here. I'll be in and out all day so when I get your message back I will get to you asap.
Thanks hope that helps some. You get into your bios by pressing the delete Key or F2 key when your are starting up and your computers logo is on continue pressing until your bios screen comes on. Read your instructions and follow how to reset bios to factory settings... anymore ?s just ask

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card

If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?

If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Sysem will not remoot fast and properly

It sounds like you are having a hard drive failure.

The message your getting is not asking for the motherboard disk, it is asking for an operating system disk.

I don't understand how the computer ever get's to the Net if it can't get past asking for a system disk.

Please provide further information, such as operating system, how old the computer and hard drive are, and a more clear description of what the system is, or is not, doing.

Mother board or CpU Doesnt work. technician said I have a ghost inside my CPU!

verify your bios settings with regards to what the pc is expecting in way of hard drive.
Do you have the luxury of another hard drive that you can try on this pc ? - this will 'suggest' where the problem rests.
Make sure the lead is fully located on the back of hard drive.
If possible - change the lead for a 'known working' lead (Maybe from the computer that your hard drive was recognized in)

MoBo Replacement

did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.

Consistent hard Drive BOOT ERROR after an upgrade to MSNV-939 motherboard

You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.
