Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
I went through installing windows xp on my pc booting from cd, first through a sata hard drive, then again with an ide hard drive (i disconnected the connection and updated bios on each drive on every attempt so the drive wont show an error),both times when the initial installation is done (after if asks for language and location) and it restarts, it freezes each time on the windows xp logo and wont go any further. all i have installed is the motherboard, a cd drive, and the hard drives i need help
All you need is the hard drive manufacture's setup software. Flashing you're bios is not the answer. On each drive (SATA & IDE) is the name & model number. Go to the Mf's site & download the free setup software, tools & utilities. Most sites will list software you can download to creat a bootable floppy disk or software to creat a bootable CD. Run the software on the SATA drive. Than unplug the SATA data cable & connect one IDE at a time. Again down load the Mfg's setup software. Do the same for the other IDE. Disconnect the data cable for the IDE drives. Do a fresh install of windows. (DO not allow windows to format the drive)! Just install windows & the motherboard drivers. Than update windows. Durring reboot press & hold the power on button on the PC untill it powers off. Connect the two IDE drives. Check the pin settings on the IDE drives. Set AS; Primary IDE drive 1 as master with a slave. Set IDE two as a slave drive.
Check the bios Boot setting. Make sure the SATA drive is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the PC. Windows should boot just fine.
Still have an issue, post the trouble here with a description.
