Question about Foxconn (755A01-6ELRS) (K8S755A6ELRS) Motherboard
Hi I have just purchased and installed a new NEC 7191S DVDRW SATA Lightscribe and when I boot up the AMD 64 Athalon 3200+ 2.2GHz 2.5 GB of RAM (Winfast K8S 755A) Windows XP SP3 my computer comes up with a Disk Boot failure. I have two hard drives installed as master and slave on the IDE slots. If I diconnect the SATA signal cable from the motherboard and boot up - It starts up fine. Looking at the User Manual for the motherboard it states "These connectors support the thin Serial ATA cables for primary internal storage devices". Does this mean that on boot up the BIOS selects SATA over IDE drives to load the programme? If so, is there a BIOS update that resolves this issue? If not then how do i resolve this issue? Thanks for your help
Start the system & enter you're bios & use you're manual to help guide you on this. Go to the Boot section of the bios. You can set the boot order. Normal boot order is like this:
1st boot device, floppy disk (if one is connected).
2nd boot device, cdrom drive
3rd boot device, hard drive
(Drive the has windows installed on it).
Save & exit the bios. The system will restart & windows should load. If it does not, than you picked the wrong hard drive.
