Hi.. this is karthik.. i am using Asus K8S-MS mother board.I have tried to reboot my 80GB sata hard disk. 1st i have copied the RAID file to the floppy drive from mother board cd. then i have started to boot.1st i used f-6 key for 3rd party drivers for RAID then it successfully loads the files from cd rom (bootable xp cd). After completing the formatting of c drive, it says "Cannot copy the file : sysraid.sys". so what could be the problem. Does any one know the answer pls help me.

Re: Asus K8S-MS boot problem..
My understanding is that if you do not have other drives in a raid configuration you do not need the raid driver loaded ,have your hard drive plugged into the first sata slot, then format the hard drive ,instal o/s and all should be good.

How were the partitions created on the SATA?
Are they RAID configured from the other system?
Does the new motherboard have the same support for your HD as the other system?
Check the setup in the BIOS screen on both systems to make them identical as much as you can.
According to Tom's Hardware: "In the SATA port configuration place you have up to four "mode" choices: IDE (or PATA) Emulation, native SATA, AHCI, or RAID."Check this section.Circe@pctechsonline.com
To get rid of this message at boot you must turn off the Chassis Intrusion detector feature. To do this you must restart the computer, as it boots press DEL to enter BIOS. Under the SECURITY tab in BIOS select CHASSIS INTRUSION and select DISABLE. Then select EXIT and SAVE CHANGES and OK to reboot the system.
