Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

BSOD on XP64 fresh install

My Maxtor Sata 160GB HD started clicking and then stopped booting up all together. I bought a Western Digital Caviar 16 MB cache 500GB SATA II HDD. When I try to boot up from the Windows XP64 CD to do a fresh install I get the BSOD. Someone told me I need to get the Sata drivers for this motherboard and install them under the F6 "install 3rd party plugins" section. The problem is I dont have that disk and I couldn't find any such drivers on the web.
Any Suggestions?

    The mother board is the ASUS P5LD2-VM DH

    Can't seem to install WinXP. Once I get a boot from the XP CD (really hard case) it will start the install, but the exact same BSOD comes up, and the install fails. Very frustrating.

    Can you see the HDD in the BIOS? This particular board is new enough to where you shouldn't need to load separate drivers for the installation..

    What blue screen are you getting? Can you post the STOP codes?

it's a bit out of focus but should be ledgible. I don't think it's seeing it in the BIOS either. I will confirm tonight when I get home from work.

I bought a "My DVR Expander" to use with my DirecTV HD DVR. Does Western Digital make this expander in anything larger than 1TB? If so, where can I buy one?


Note that your DVR will treat this as "extra" storage, i.e., supplemental to its "internal" storage.

A 1 terabyte hard drive allows you to record:
  • Up to an additional 600 hours of Digital TV
  • Up to an additional 120 hours of High Definition TV
Since the largest EIDE/PATA disk-drive is 0.5 TB, the disk-drive inside the Expander must be a SATA disk-drive.

So, disassemble the unit, disconnect the SATA disk-drive, and pay about $300 to buy a "2000Gb Western Digital Caviar RE4 Raid Edition 7200RPM 64 Mb Cache 3.5 7200RPM 64 MB Cache SATA Internal HD 3 Yr Warranty WD2003FYYS".

Connect the disk-drive to its interface.
Close-up the case.
Connect your "custom" PVR expander to your DVR,
and see if your DVR will recognize the 2TB of disk-storage.

Installed more ram and now can't find the hard drive


Pull out the new RAM chips and install the old one or ones and see if it boots ok. I had this same problem. This can also be caused by no using matched sets of RAM chips. In my case I added one and used the factory one as well, caused the same issue as you have.

SATA II HDD instaling on ASUS P5LD2


No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
