I have problem in asus A8V-vm motherboard in that hard disk is not detected in BIOS but Win-XP is working properly and when I tries to install new windows XP it shows an error that hard disk cannot be...

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.

New build pc no boot... black screen

Try to remove the battery from the MB, and next time you try to install WIN XP, when you are asked how to format your drive, chose quick NTFS formatting; disable floppy drive in BIOS, because it might try to boot from it (and I suppose you don't have one), and in boot sequence (BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY) set cd-dvd as first, and HDD as second, and turn off any other device as bootable

ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard supports 1TB SATA2 HDD?

1) Grab a blank floppy, and a computer running Windows with a floppy drive.
2) Download (A7N8X-E Deluxe Latest BIOS, from Asus), AWDFLASH (Also from Asus), the latest Silicon Image SATARAID BIOS (from Silicon Image), and CBROM 2.15 (Alternative CBROM 2.15 download link)
3) Extract all the contents of everything into an easily accessible folder, preferably something like C:\bios
4) Make sure you have no other folders in this new folder. Everything must be within C:\bios, so for example there shouldn't be anything in C:\bios\BIO-003112\

5) Open a command prompt (Start -> Run, type "cmd" and hit enter, without the quotes)
6) Navigate to the folder you just created using the command "cd" (For example, if you used the folder I suggested above, you would type "cd C:\bios", without the quotes, and hit enter)
7) Now type "cbrom215 c18e1013.bin /pci 4284.bin" without quotes, and hit enter. This will take the latest BIOS for your motherboard, and merge the new SATARAID BIOS into it.
8) To make sure everything went correctly, type "cbrom215 c18e1013.bin /D". This will show a list of the modules in the BIOS. At the bottom should be a line with PCI(A), and should have "4284.bin" at the right end of that line.

9) Now put the blank floppy into the computer with the floppy drive.
10) Open My Computer, right click on the floppy drive (probably A:), and select "Format"
11) The formatting window should pop up. Check the box labeled "Create an MS-DOS startup disc" (which should disable all the other options), and click Start.
12) Click OK and close the format utility when the process completes.
13) Copy the modified BIOS file c18e1013.bin and the file AWDFLASH.EXE to the floppy disc (simply a drag and drop).

14) Close everything on the computer with the A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard and reboot it. Make sure the computer is set to boot to the floppy drive, and that you have put the floppy in the drive.
15) Type the command "awdflash c18e1013.bin /py /sn" once you get to the "A:" prompt.
16) Press enter to confirm that you wish to overwrite the current BIOS.
17) Wait.
18) Once it says it is complete, remove the floppy, press F1 (as instructed), then reboot the machine (which should happen automatically once you press F1). Now the computer should detect the 1TB drive upon booting.

It could be that you have disabled BIOS flashing. Go to BIOS and look for the option and enable it

Bios update problems P4S800-MX

An .exe file isn't a .rom file. You downloaded the flash program (the program used to flash new data to the ROM), you didn't download the flash data. Look on the site again, or look to see if there's another file - P4S800MX.ROM - to extract.

I got it :-)

Damn Asus , it was a hard session ;-)

1. Make an ISO from your original Asus CD denn insert (with isobuster or something) the Bios Firmware 1004 in the main Dir name the file M2N-MX.ROM

2.Burn a Second disc with the 0804 Bios ROM also rename the 0804 Rom to M2N-MX.ROM

3. Go to EZ FLASH with ALT + F2 and then insert the 1004 CD wait till Erasing is ready Then Turn OFF your PC :-) so you crashed the bios thats what you need to run the embeded CrashFRee Tool

4 After you turn your PC on insert the 0804 CD then it flashes the this Rom and we are Happy :-)

Do I really need a floppy disk to do an upgrade bios?

Of course floppy is the easiest but if you configure a flash drive with flash drive utilities to be bootable, and the BIOS will support it you can flash from the USB flash drive.

New XPPro Install... Can't see HD

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
