I have ones. the solution is integrate the sata driver using windows unattended cd creator (wucd). you can use via hyperion 4in1 pack driver to get the sata driver. wucd can be obtained from www.vitaligraf.de. don't worry it's just a little file to download. after you integrate sata driver you don't need floppy disk anymore to install your windows xp in your drive...

When install windows from CD it comes up down the bottom of the screen with a "Press F6 to Specify Additional Devices" or something like that. If you press F6 then it will ask you at a later stage of the setup to provide a Floppy Disk with drivers for the unknown hardware.

If you go to the ASUS site and download the drivers you should see one there that mentions Windows SATA driver Floppy Disk or similar. Use this disk during setup in order that the Windows Setup CD can find your Hard Drive.

    On this page download the RAID Driver (SATA RAID) for Windows XP (or 2000 if you are installing that) and in that driver you can either create the disk by copying the required files to the Floppy or use a tool within that driver to create the disk.

Your mainboard supports P-IDE and SATA drives.

A large ide drive, is hard to find, but a sata drive does
come up to 3 tb.
But it depends what windows system you have.
Windows xp, supports up to 2 tb, with the latest service pack installed.

Good luck

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.

Motherboard stop recognize SATA HDD after BIOS reset (default)


You'll likely need either a driver disk for your SATA drive to be recognized by Windows XP during installation or Windows XP with Service Pack 2 built in to install without a driver disk.

Creating a Windows XP installation CD with Service Pack 2 or "SP2" built in is fairly straight forward. This is called "slip streaming". Step - by - step directions can be found in the following links:

Installing 750GB SATA on Asus A8N-E Mobo


Hello there.

I would not update the BIOS unless you are experiencing any problems. Try installing the new hardware first and then if you do experience problems, think about upgrading the BIOS. The latest version is 1013 FYI.

The new hardware should be supported without a BIOS update, as long as you have Service Pack 2 in Windows XP or above then all your 750GB will be shown. As for the memory you should see it list the new size in the POST screen before Windows even loads, or inside Windows.

If you do have problems, then please post back and we can help.

Hope this helps.

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard with 250GB SATA HDD and 250GB IDE HDD Problem


Hi LP,
I’ am very familiar with ASUS motherboards. I am thinking you have posted two questions or more referring to the,
ASUS K8V-MX board. When you sign into you're FixYa account you than need to click on you're profile. Within you're profiles are the questions you have posted. Click that question to add or see the expert's answer. If you need another question (about the same item) re-post within that same question. You can even copy the link to an older post & past that link into you're next question. (Than I can read you're last question & my responce).
LP you have me all mixed up. I'll answer the question you have posted above. In the future please provide you're old post so I understand better.

There is nothing wrong with IDE 250GB drive or the SATA drive.
The problem you are haveing is setting the correct settings.

The ASUS K8V-MX can support two serial ATA SATA drives. The SATA drive's can only run at 1.0 version. 1.5GB transfer speed & not SATA II, the 3.0GB speed.

How to setup the SATA drive?
Please disconnect any other drives (IDE) & a second SATA drive that may be connected to the system. Except the CDROM drive.
Using you're manual the SATA drive should be connected to SATA1 port. Page 1-24 in you're manual.
Put you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & boot the PC. You will see, Press any key to boot from CD... (press any key on your keyboard). Windows will start to install. Durring installation of windows the system will restart. You will again see, Press any key to boot from CD... (DO Nothing)!
Just allow windows to conintue on its own. Windows will continue to install it's self. This will happed once again, & again do nothing. Windows will finish installing it's self.
After windows has finished, load the ASUS CD into you're CD-ROM drive & install it's driver software. Restart the PC.
You must register windows. Do so.
Than update windows through windows update service. (This will take some time to complete). (Do not install service pack 3).
If you have an IDE drive 250GB in size & you installed windows on it. You must erase the drive or it will conflict with you're new installation on the SATA drive. To do this, look on the IDE drive & you will find a large white sticker. Printed on there is instructions of how to set the drive pin. Set the drive up as a slave drive. (This is only temporary).
Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Connect the 250 IDE drive's power cable & data cable. Plug in the power cord to the PC & turn on the PC. Windows will load. Right click once on the start button & slide up to & left click on Explorer.
Find the 250 IDE drive, it should be drive letter D or E. Right click the proper drive letter & format the drive.
( Do Not format, Local_Drive C:\ ). Once the format is complete, power down the PC by clicking on the start button & click turn off the computer. Once off, unplug the power cord. Change the pin on the 250GB IDE drive to Master with a slave. Take the 40GB drive & change it's pin so the 40GB drive is a slave.
Connect the 250GB drive to the end of the IDE data cable & connect the 40GB drive to the next connector of the same IDE data cable. Re-check all power cables & data cables for good connections before closing the case. Plug the power cord in & power up the PC. Everything should run just fine.
Setting the pin for you're IDE drive's can be very confusing. Click on the link below. This will give you an idea of how to set you're pin for a master drive, master with a slave drive. If you post the name ST****** of you're two drives I can post the correct pin locations from Seagate's web site.
