Welcome to Fixya. The first thing you need to check is if the SATA Hard Disk is detected in Bios. In the system information you will see there the list of the drives including the DVD and the IDE hard drive. You can also check the Boot Sequence or Priority if it is there. Please let me know if you find the SATA hard disk on the list.
Your not going to be able to update the BIOS without having XP installed on the computer. I had the same problem myself as a motherboard i had would not update with Win 7 installed. If you have a spare hard drive and an XP install disk then i recommend installing XP on that and then download the exe BIOS update file and run it from within Windows to update the BIOS. After that just turn the PC off, put back your Win 7 hard drive and your good to go.
Start your computer.
Enter BIOS SETUP.
Select "Boot Order".
Configure to make the CD/DVD the *FIRST* boot-device.
Put the Windows CD/DVD into the drive.
Save/Exit from BIOS SETUP.
Your computer will restart, and will "boot" from the Windows disk in CD/DVD drive.
Note that SOLTEK has gone bankrupt.
Their "support" site (www.soltek.com.tw) is now owned by a "domain-squatter". So, there no longer is any information online about CPU-support for SOLTEK motherboards.
I'm sorry to say buddy but I checked ... Then checked some more, and I can't see anything about your motherboard supporting SATA-II. If you look about you should find a jumper setting on your HDD to limit it to SATA-I, which is about half the speed of sata-ii but I'm almost promising it will work.
Let me know if this solves it, If not I can find the jumper settings for you, But seeing as though you just bought it you should have a manual.
If the Bios does not see the disk, the operating system will not see the disk, nor will the install -even if you do an f6 to load drivers. It is most likely a problem between the motherboard not recognising the SATA-II interface. So no real solution I'm afraid. I suggest you install a SATA-II interface card which the BIOS will see, and add the card driver at f6 to install XP.
ok first u have press the delete or F2 and go to the BIOS setting and sellect the first bootable device CD rom after save and exit.. after that u insert the cd of win xp. and install the win xp... if any problem cont me...
