Question about Gigabyte GA-D525TUD Atom Dual Core D525/ Intel NM10/ DDR3/ A&GbE/ Mini-ITX Motherboard Retail

4 Answers

Hi i have a gigabyte GA-D525TUD mini itx motherboard, when i enable raid and then do the usual set up thing it formats the raid array as normal and then says "creating a list of files to be copied" as windows XP pro usually does, then stops and says "Insert the disk labeled: J_36X into drive A:, Press enter when ready" when the disk is already in the drive and had to be used for windows to see the array there. What id like to know is why is it doing that, i cannot go any further as it stops seeing USB Floppy drive A and wont continue to load from drive A no more and you can only Quit as pressing enter just seems to refresh the screen and i have 5 of these boards and they all do the same thing, Any ideas on how to make it see USB drive A or is this a long term problem as Gigabyte cant answer the question when i get onto them and they say sorry we dont know why its doing that

    Hi i see what you mean and have been using raid for many years and doing a raid setup from usb seems to always be an issue with some boards, but if i add that it no longer tried to read from the floppy at all to read the same disk at all, its like windows doesnt recognise or see the usb floppy from the point it asks to insert a disk as though its been taken away or where it last accessed the floppy disk that its been cleared from memory so therefore no longer sees it and cannot find it anymore to read from it so as for solutions im completeley stumped on it., ive never seen this beofre happen on any raid setup, i do however remember seeing this issue on another forum when i looked into it a month back and a soloution doesnt seem to have been found.

    Well i tried the USB flash drive way of loading the raid drivers but anything usb will come up in the bios but from when it gets to need those drivers it stops and says insert disk drive A stuff again, i also tried slipstreaming it and it blue screens with an error code C-0000 and some other numers and then says "unknown hard error" so this means im right in saying its a hardware issue, i say this as i made a phone call to a compnay telling me that intel recalled millions of boards with most chipsets above the X58 type because the chipsets have faults or design flaws and i have 5 of these boards all doing the same thing, these boards are supposed to work how they say it will or how its specified to but they dopnt and many other boardds do not work either that i have bought aswell such as the p41 chipset range that wont boot and monitors do not work properly and sometimes wont come on, but as i say with that 525tud board i think we have run out of ideas, this is just one of those boards that alos needs recalling as theres no way round this, id say a few people need this boiard to see exactly how they dont work.

    yeh anything that uses a USB floppy drive i wont any longer use as those things dont seem to work the way they say they will, but thing is why do they sell motherboard products that havent been tested, i dont want to be one of those people that buy something and find loads of problems and have to send it back, i just wanna buy an item and use it the way they describe it will work, thanks for your help, ill stick to the traditional way of using my SIL3114 raid cards as when i use those things with EP43-DS3 motherboards or P41T-D3 those seem to be the only things that works the way they were designed, However i did find out that intel did recall millions of new boards of socket 775 and above all with the same chipset problems, they havent told anyone but the traders (shops businesses and board dealers) at present if you shop around youll find low quantitys of boards around of the 775 type that do actually work properly, one business said to me over the phone that all chipsets are being redesigned again before manufacture of new boards will start,as from this date they say that it can take between 3 months and 1 year to correct current chipset bugs, as far as i know only seems to effect intel based boards. this is something that everyone should also note.

    hi found out that its an intel chipset issue and it is known, and the chipset is what id suspected all along. thats for help though.

    the 3114 card works fine on all borads ive used it on, the sill card is not being used on the 525tud thats seperate from from this, the issue i have with the 525TUD board is a built in gigabyte controller chip, The SIL3114 works perfectly fine on gigabyte EP43-DS3 and P41T-D3 and many other boards, ive never tried to use the SIL3114 controller on the 525TUD board and never would. when the gigayte controller is a chip that handles raid. As for conflict that youve had then thats the hardware youve plugged it into, not the card. The card only works and follows instructions that the motherboard gives it. In the last 4 years ive been using SIL31114 contoller cards ive never had any conflicts or issues at all with those cards and i already have 2 servers running with those in and they have been online for 4 and a half years so far. Now for the 525TUD board Its an NM10 intel chipset issue, and its known with that chipset, thats why intel recalled millions of boards and have obviously got to compensate companys that use certain types of intel chipsets starting from the X58 chipsets that had the shutdown issue and it was never solved and put down to chipsets so they were discontinued. i know all this as i buy around 20 boards a year and test them and sometimes 3 to 4 of each type chipset and look for common problems before using them or using them for a server or something like that, im one of those people that buy things in volume and test everything in everyway to look for problems, and if alls well then ill buy the best for myself.

It's a problem that came up to me several times when I use Gigabyte motherboards. The most effective solution is to use a non USB floppy drive (personally I use to keep some working floppies from old towers). Connect it and use it at the normal way, as you did with the USB floppy. The rest of your procedure is right.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

There are a couple of ways around this but the USB floppy is certainly not my favourite

I usually have the drivers on a usb stick rather than floppy and have it plugged in PRIOR to the install that way the bios and the installation sees it more often than not.

The other way is to install from a USB stick itself and have those drivers on the install stick.
http://reboot.pro/4900/
http://wiki.eeeuser.com/windowsxpusb

My install systems are now all USB based and all I need to do for a different system is to simply place the install drivers in a directory on the usb drive (usually root)

You could also slipstream the drivers as well but that does involve a little more work
http://www.digitgeek.com/how-to-slipstream-sata-drivers-into-xp-cd/
http://www.wikihow.com/Slipstream-Your-Sata-Drivers-Into-a-Windows-Xp-Installation-Cd

I have found on some systems than the keyboard and or mouse may even disapear and this is inherant with lots of XP installs.

Make sure you have USB legacy enabled in BIOS and make sure also that you have FULL speed if it is offered.

You may also have some issues with USB3 and XP installs and again similar methods to those mentioned above often help you get the install finished..

    If you are already up to date on any BIOS upgrades and its still an issue then find supporting evidence for the raid recall and go back to your supplier armed with the info and ask for replacement boards.



    Its not an issue that rings any bells with me though.



    If these are stand alone boxes then I dont quite understand why Raid would be required.



    Myself I depend on my servers for backups of system and data.

    Your mention of 3114 now says it all !!
    If that's the ADD-In card then dump it !!

    Its not an intel issue is the SIL card That particular chipset is very old and only used on the cheap cards
    I did have one on my old server until I found that it conflicted with a slot.

    Moving it to another slot fixed the issue until an SBX hardware upgrade package made it un-usable.
    Changing it to another card based on the NVIDIA chipset fixed the problem and allowed me to use the enhanced functions again

Try copying everything you need off of the USB drive, formatting it as a MSDOS startup / boot disk with USB-FDD selected - Instructions here: http://www.rm.com/Support/TechnicalArticle.asp?cref=TEC134761
Copy back any files you need on the A: drive.
That should get you booting to the drive as A:. From there you should be able to navigate to your CD/DVD drive and start the XP install - Instructions here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307848
Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

I don't have this brand of motherboard. However, other raid motherboards come with two floppy disks (or you have to create the to floppy disks yourself) and when I get the "insert the disk labeled....." message I insert the 2nd floppy. Is the request you are getting refer to a different floppy disk Number? If you are still having problems, ask Gigabyte if one or two discs are required for raid setup and go from there. Hope this helps.

How do i fix a motherboard of gigabyte ga-j1800n-d2h


Assuming that your monitor is good only thing you can do at this juncture is to replace the cmos chip. And if that does not do it, look for blown capacitors on board and replace. If neither of these steps resolves the issue it is time for new mo bo.

What is the PSU watt requirement for GA D525 TUD mini itx motherboard? More specifically, would 150w be enough - as in the Antec ISK 300-150 case.


150 w is a bit low, especially if you have two CD or DVD drives, two hard drives, hi powered video card, LAN card, Sound card etc.
You should add up your power requirements of your devices and allow for a bit extra, If you run the power supply close to its limit it will not last.
I suggest you install at least 300 to 400 W power supply depending upon what you have installed in your computer.

Yes, you can, just that it will be really slow - the Atom processor is extremely weak. Just put the 1600 in, they will be automatically underclocked to 800.

I have tried to install RAM up to the 4GB maximum and now the boot up screen locks complaining that 'detecting array, no disk reserved for RAID use, RAID disabled'. Any ideas?


This RAID message has nothing to do with RAM, RAID is Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks.
Maybe you knocked a connector when you installed the ram? This seems most likely to me, check all the hard drive connectors both at the drive and at the board.
Finally if you are not using RAID then disable it in the BIOS and it should boot without complaining, but I suspect you are using it and thats why its not booting, sounds like its set to use raid disks which it cant find because a connector is not in place, but thats just a guess based on what you're put above!
