Dear mike,
I too face the same problem, here the window xp cdrom did not detect sata drive. but the bios detect sata and list the drive during bootup. since P5RD1 uses ali-chip set, I think only option is through floppy. we will not be able load the driver and update the system later because no drive exist if only sata drive is present. I do not know whether to say Asus motherboard is faulty. I have seen similar procedure for Ndiva boards also.

Hi sheikhun, just ignore windows F6 to add special SATA drivers. Install windows, when finished use your Asus CD and install missing drivers from CD. Than run windows updates.
You should not have a problem, if while in your bios your SATA drive is shown in the main menu. Than check the Boot section of bios. The boot order should be.
CDROM drive 1st. SATA drive 2nd.
Disconnect any other hard drives data cable while installing windows. When you finish installing windows & installing the drivers from the CD & windows updates you can shut down the PC & reconnect the data cables you may have disconnected.

If your bios does not see your serial ATA SATA drive than your SATA onboard controller is defective. Return to Asus for replacement/repair.

    To get into your bios press the Delete key every 2 seconds just as you start the PC. Your SATA drive should be shown in the bios main window. Go to Advanced section in bios Pg. 2-24 to

    SATA should be enabled.

    Go to Boot device priority. Pg. 2-31.

    1st Boot Device = CDROM

    2nd Boot Device = SATA

    3rd Boot Device = You choose or Disable.

Yes, it's compatible with the motherboard, no, it's not compatible with the XP install disk because it doesn't have SATA support. And since Asus doesn't provides it special driver needed (one that must be put on a floppy) it means that you simply cannot install XP on this disk.
All you can do is to obtain another PATA hdd what ever its size and install XP in it. Then put the new SATA disk in and use it to store all the installed programs and all your files on it. As a bonus you won't lose them if the new PATA disk fails or XP gets corrupted.
Or install Vista or 7 instead of XP, the have support for SATA disks

I have an asus p5rd1-vm motherboard. I found problems on installing windows xp using sata hdd. Please help me to install windows xp2 as i am not using floppy drive.


The Windows installation CD does not have a SATA driver. You need a SATA driver of a floppy disk or turn off SATA native driver in the BIOS.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions on how to Install Windows on a SATA hard drive :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive
I suggest you install SP3 (service pack 3) rather than SP2, it contains the latest bug fixes. The SP3 cannot be installed from a floppy, it can be downloaded from Microsoft, it is a large file approx 300Mb, I suggest you install it from a CD if you can borrow one.

How to install windows xp in p5rd1-vm? when installing windows xp it goes no hard disk found. cant find sata hard disk. please help me about this problem.... thanks!


Make sure all the connectors are plugged in and in the correct spots. Then go to the bios and enable the SATA drives to be read. After that you should be able to boot from CD and install XP.

Sata HDD NOT DETECTING IN XP SETUP


If you're using a scsi card and connecting the hard drive to the card you need to have the scsi set-up floppy disk. When the blue screen starts during windows installation watch the bottom of the screen. It will tell you to press F6 key then to insert the floppy disk.
If you're using a sata drive connected directly to the motherboard (not in a raid configuration) you shouldn't need anything but the windows disk. The motherboard drivers and utilities disk should have the files to create the scsi install disk.

use Nlight research this software in the net and you will find the answer works on laptops too the process is called slipstreaming. the process of witch you integrate the sata driver to the xp intallation disk to provide the necessary driver you required first download the driver you need then use Nlight to integrate the driver to the xp installation disk of course you will need another writable disk to accomplish this. thank you
