Henx, How do you know that the SATA controller is corrupt?

I see you state that your SATA drives are not beeing found by the system. The SATA controller is defective if your bios does not see a connected SATA drive connected to the SATA port & the SATA power connector is also correct & connected. There is not a fix for your issue. I checked every bios version for your P4S800D-X. No SATA fix through Asus. There is only one way to get your board fixed. You must call Asus tech at 812-282-2787 M-F Eastern time. Please have handy the set of numbers found on a white sticker on the serial port. Asus will need this number. Keep your system together as the tech will want you to do some checks before he will issue you a case number. Keep in mind Asus warrants boards for three years. Asus also can not repair your board's defective SATA controller. They will test it & replace board with another. After receiving a case number you'll have to call CA for a RMA No#. RMA dept, will send you a RMA to your email address along with instructions on how to send the board back to Asus.

    RMA's number. 510-739-3777. You can have Asus tech switch you after you get your case number, you'll have to ask to be switched.

New hard drive operating system not found


The reason why you cannot install Windows on your hard drive is this model Sony has a SATA disk controller.
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.

It is required to install the hard disk SATA drivers in the computer first. Download and extract the SATA drivers in a floppy drive, hard drive or CD on a different computer. Then, retsrt the computer by having the Windows XP disc inserted and beging the setup. During the setup process press the F6 key and enter>enter and then install the SATA drivers. Then, continue with the further setup process.

it's trying to boot up from the network instead of from your harddrive. It could mean that it's unable to find your harddrive. One thing to check is the BIOS settings for the boot option - make sure the harddrive boots BEFORE it tries to boot from network.
Once you turn on your laptop it will tell you what to press to get in to the bios to change these options (could be either F1, F2, F10, DEL or maybe even something else) Once in the BIOS look for BOOT OPTIONS

How do I replace the sata cable on my sony vaio VGC- LT15E


The problem is not your SATA cable.

It is either in the drive itself, or the operating system files have been corrupted....most likely it is your hard drive that is bad tho, not the cable.

HDD error no hard drive found, a new hard drive was installed but the result was the same


If system has a SATA HDD and you are using WIndows XP, you may need to load a SATA controller driver before the HDD controller will be recognized by the Winodws setup. Windows XP will require the driver from a floppy diskette, Vista will load from USB or any other type of drive

You sure your HD isn't bad? You could try a low-level format and then try to install, I am assuming you don't mind loosing any data already on the disk.
