Don't know what model my mother board is. Can't boot it up to see.
I have a motherboard that I would like to use, but I can't find out what model it is. There is some stuff on the board that might help. In a few places, it says Foxconn, so I think its made by them, but I don't see it on their website. I looked at all the pics and none matched. Its a socket 478. Mat/NO. 200678 S/N (S) 132725-0073832. There is an intel chip that says FW8280 F229009 SL66K. On the back of the board it says Yang AN YA-3 E114139 94V-0. If you could somehow find out what motherboard model this it, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

i have never heared of any hardrive being able to boot when it is set as slave, as the master is always the 'C' drive from which windows looks for the master boot record.
why, if you have only one hard drive is it set as slave?, it doesnt make sense.
No hard drive will boot up if there is no jumper cap on it, as the motherboard needs to know which hd is master and has the o.s on it.
