Question about ASUS A8V-VM SE (MB-A8VVMSE) Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a A8V-VM Ultra socket 939 with AMIBIOS 0903 version. When I boot normally with the Windows XP (SP3) on the hard disk it seems to work fine, nothing abnormal happens. Booting with a Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid-Linx) CD is the same thing. Booting to the setup utility works fine. But if I try to boot with a XP (SP3) (The same installed in the HD) to do a reinstallation the machine shutdown unexpectedly in a few seconds (for example in the partition screen). If I try to boot without boot device (no disk, no diskette, no CD) the "Insert proper boot...." appears and the computer shutdow unexpectedly in a few seconds as with de XP CD. I try changing position of memory (I have two different ones and I left only one to avoid incompatibility problems). Thank you in advance for your attention.

Go into your bios settings make sure your hard drive is set to IDE and make sure secure boot isnt on. You could just try resetting to default.

Also check your ram. Take out one then the other. This usually happens when Windows loads the files it is about to install into the ram. It takes up a lot of space and could cause faulty ram to overload.

SOURCE: New ASUS A8V-MX motherboard will not boot to CD or HD with XP

The first thing is to make sure that your CD/DVD drive has the windows disk in it. Also check drive C which is where the windows will be installed. It may require that it is hard formated. Hard formatted means "format x /u" [format-space-drive to be formatted-space-right slash-u]. This will place the drive for "windows xp sp2", all of it, to one pass of zeroes. So, once we have a clean drive C and the installation disc is inserted into the CD/DVD drive, you may proceed to install. You will need to find "install" or "setup" and start it on he "RUN" mode. Any questions or help get back to me. CONSTANTIN (arzconst)

SOURCE: Motherboard does not BOOT to windows

If you are running anything from windows XP upwards inc Vista
then you must re-install the operating system when you change the motherboard.

From your description that is the problem you are encountering.

You could place your windows disc in the cd rive and tell the computer to boot from that and try a "repair install"

If successful you will loose no date but will be asked to re-register with microsoft.

If your windows disk is original and not meant for an OEM computer that will not be a problem

A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk 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 and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been 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.

I have problem in asus A8V-vm motherboard in that hard disk is not detected in BIOS but Win-XP is working properly and when I tries to install new windows XP it shows an error that hard disk cannot be...


Asus A8V-VM Motherboard coming with SATA RAID option, thats why you could not see the detected HDD in system BIOS. But you can see the the detected HDD in RAID BIOS. You can enter to RAID BIOS that will pop up after system BIOS. If you are using old version of WinXP it will not detect the RAID controller of you motherboard. Thats why you cannot able to install WinXP. While you booting from WinXP CD press F6 key when the WinXP installer prompted for third party driver. Copy the RAID driver provider in driver CD to a Floppy Disk (INF file) and insert it, hit enter to continue the installation. If you are using WinXP Service pack 2 or higher you do not need this step it will automatically detect the HDD.

Consistent hard Drive BOOT ERROR after an upgrade to MSNV-939 motherboard


You can run a disk manager for your drive however, I'll bet you will find its windows boot.ini. It may read just fine for a dual boot system but think about this. Windows can get confused real quick. I'm talking about the regestry. Take the time and do a fresh install of your Linuex and than re-install windows "clean install". I'll bet everything works out just fine. When 1 changes MB's there is a whole list of new drivers PCI devices loading into windows. Your system will run better with one copy of drivers for your new board and windows will not carry a list of old drivers and PCI devices of your old board.
