Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD. This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program
Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.
Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.
First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
If you do not have a floppy disk drive than make the first boot device your DVD writer.
Save the bios & exit the bios. You should not receive "boot disk error message anymore".
Run into a problem, post here.
Good luck whistler1410!
This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY
Hi wayne, I'm thinking you're windows is slowly going. This can happen from installing software, than uninstalling too many times. Windows registry can get messed up & windows startup files can get corrupted. (Video files are part of windows boot process). There is also that one security patch from windows that seems to mess up you're Internet Explorer. I doubt you're video card is bad either. I think you're windows operating system has been slowly going. I read all your posts & feel sure about this. Do you have more than one drive in you're system? If it were me I would do a fresh install of windows with a disk format. If you have a second drive back up these important folders to you're second drive or to a CD/DVD disk. C:Documents and Settings User nameApplication DataMicrosoftAddress Book C:Documents and Settings User nameDesktop C:Documents and Settings User nameFavorites C:Documents and Settings User nameLocal SettingsIdentities C:Documents and Settings User nameMy Documents Data from any programs you may have installed. Put you're AGP card back in & set the bios back to [AGP VGA Card]. Than go to page 2.4.1 & set, Onboard VGA to [Disabled]. Load you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & save the bios & exit. The PC will auto restart the PC. As the system starts, press the F8 key every two seconds. This will bring up windows, Please select boot device: Using you're arrow keys high light the CD-ROM with windows in it. Press enter. The Win CD should begin. Format the drive & install windows. When windows finishes turn on windows firewall. (You may have to re-register with Microsoft). There should be a windows screen that allows you to register by phone. Tell MS that you installed a new drive & they'll give you a new key. Load the Asus CD in & install all you're drivers for the board. Next load you're antivirus software & make sure it's up to date. Don't have valid antivirus software? Download AGV for free, click here to download: http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe Run windows update service. If you come across .Net framework do not install more than 1 at a time & restart the PC in-between each. Do not install internet explorer 7 or above. Do not install windows media player 11. Wait until you're system is up & running 100%. Same for windows SP3. Do not install, yet! When finished go to Asus web site & download & install any newer driver software. ASUS P4S800-MX main site: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4S800-MX&SLanguage=en-us Re-install you're programs, printer software, games ect. Than copy the folders you backed up over you're new windows. Again, wait a few days before downloading & installing the windows updates you did not install. Suggest installing 1 at a time & wait a few days before installing the next. Good luck Wayne! Mike
Well it's kinda hard to tell exactly what when wrong, but this is my suggestion you could try. Uninstall your video driver, restart and reinstall the driver. If possible try to get the latest driver possible.
Is your system still power ? if the system is working properly before u connect the new HDD. Be sure that your system or motherboard support the new HHD. if yes then, newly installed HDD sharing one cable specifically on IDE cable , the second drive should be in slave and the first one is master.( verify installation summary of the Hard drive label ) if you sure about these, then maybe memory is lessened try to fixed it by removing and installing. if not solved then update me about your system.
My first course of action would be to isolate the problem. So what i would do is un hook one of the 500 gb Sata drives. Then try to install on one. Once you get it up and running hook the second one up and let windows find it. Also another note of thumb is make sure you have not over exceeded your ram slot capabilities. Find the techical manual on the manufactures web site. Each ram slot has a max amount and speed. If you exceed these it can cause windows programs to halt. I do think that if you isolate down to one sata drive install your os then add your second Sata you should be good to go. If you are still having problems feel free to contact me. TechWizard
