Boot her up with a xp cd in the cd/dvd drive. She will take boot sector from there. Problem is that you mounted a SATA drive on an old IDE motherboard and used an additional PCI interface card that misfires
too fast or to slow to get xp's boot sector. Had such a case under my hands few months ago. This was the solution there.
Copied xp to a separate DVD and uses this to boot system, pc will only use boot sector from this and then use installed sata drive. Once fired up you can tempoerarily remove that CD/DVD and use for tasks.
Your problem lies in an older BIOS or older component. Maybe there is a later version.
BIOS flashing is tricky. Be sure to have backup before flashing. No experience leave it.

We cannot seem to load win XP on DG43NB motherboard with SATA drives. Is there a way to do so?


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hello when i install windows my sata hard dont detect. my main board is asus k8ux hard is western 1.0tera


You are probably installing windows XP
This requires that you install the textmode sata raid drivers as you install windows

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K8U-X&p=1&s=20

Download the RAID driver and expand it to a floppy , CD or USB drive that the computer can recognise
(USB is better)

When you install windows, at the prompt for installing other drivers press F6 and let it find the raid drivers, if it finds them, it should then recognize your hard drive and you can install windows XP

NO INTTALEDWIN XP IN SATA HDD


you need your windows xp disc preferably slip streamed with SP 2 or SP 3 and then you should be able to install it onto your sata hard drive.

If you are having issues then you may need to extract the sata drivers onto a memory stick or floppy disk and press F6 before windows xp loads and specify to use the sata drivers which you can download from the motherboards manufacturers website generally as a zip file which you will first need to extract into a folder.

If that does not work using the memory stick you can use nlite to slipstream the drivers with your windows xp disc :

Nlite download

Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd

Solution:

this specific model HP 6735 was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset either it is 945 or 965 gm and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

http://www.nliteos.com/

just download sata drivers from intel and nlite from the link and install the software integrate these drivers and burn ur cd incl them and then install normally as u were installing them earlier now it will recognize ur drive simple for more info how to do check this out

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.

hope this is of help
