The issue with your board is that it can't see drives above a certain size. This does require a BIOS update, usually involving a floppy drive. Look in your BIOS - there may be an option for you to be able to boot from other devices. Check to see if "USB Floppy" is one, as it means you could potentially use an external floppy drive, which are cheap at most electronics stores.

Alternatively, if you or a friend has another computer, you might try borrowing a floppy drive to do the update.

Alternatively, you could go to the manufacturer's website and check the information they have for your particular board. Many now let you download an executable file with the recent BIOS updates that you can use without having to use a floppy drive. Some also have methods that you can burn to a CD.

I ahve MSI u210 light, i want to know why is now takes long during booting... i ahve already formatted it but still the same.


Here are a few non-hardware-specific suggestions that have worked for me, not in any certain order, but I'd update the BIOS and try the first suggestion:

Unplug all of your peripherals, everything on the board (except HDD and RAM of course), and see if it boots faster. Only leave one stick of RAM in (primary slot), replace it with another stick each boot. If boots faster, replace everything one at a time, booting after each, until you find the problem device.

Try another HDD, make sure it's on the right SATA channel in the BIOS. Or even better, boot from a USB stick with DSL, Puppy Linux or Ubuntu (or whatever flavor you like). Watch the terminal on boot, see if it hangs on a certain device -this works in safe mode too.

Check your BIOS, make sure everything is legit, if it has a "fast boot" select it. May as well update the BIOS too, that may fix everything. You've probably done that though.

Poke it with a stick.

Hello , I just bought an 80 gb hdd. I installed it to a MS 6119 ver 1.2 bx2 board, but its not picking in bios. But with Winxp it picks up when I start up the pc with xp cd, it picks up the 80 gb hard disk...


Hi,

I am ArmyMason and I believe the issue is the hard drive is too large for the system you have. That board is old and back in the day they didnt support large hard drives. You could try using a boot disk and partition the hard drive into 20 GB drives and see if that works.

Hi! and Welcome to Fixya,

just suggesting, in my own view, of how to troubleshoot USB problem.

BIOS Setup:
  • restart your PC
  • in booting process, press F2 or Delete tab, to show BIOS set up.
  • in BIOS setup, find the USB port see if it is Enable or Enable it.
  • save the changes and exit.
OS Problem:
  • Update your system to Microsoft, SP1, SP2 and SP3, browse the MS website for any drivers update that applicable to your system.
  • at the link below, see some updates to MS website:

Drivers Problem:
  • update your system to Unit manufacturer or Motherboard Manufacturer for new drivers update of your system.
  • at the link below, see some updates to Intel websites.

ASUS P4S533 mother board not supporting full 160 gb


This is happing becuase of your motherboards BIOS !
Really, this happened to me too. You see, our motherboards which are very old cant support above 80 and so on. This is beacuse of the BIOS. You will need to update your BIOS inorder to give new features.

Try go to the Asus home page and download the latest driver for your motherboard. Then install it in your motherboard's BIOS. There is intructions for this in the Asus's home page.
