maybe your IDE is not detected.... first you have to check the (IDE) Integrated drive electron...just make sure that the cable is firmly connected...into your hard drive.... to see that it was connected.. try to press a f2 and DELETE until the bios set-up appear..there you will see the result.....
Ubuntu works with RAM and CPU Memory instead of a pc like xp that uses Virtual RAM. If the pc that could not load ubuntu doesn't have enough ram to support the reading of the Hard drive and the Operating System then it won't work and Xp will only run on the computer that xp was installed onto the hard drive.
Your bios should show the installed drives. So we are clear it is actually the BIOS we are discussing - the bios is reached by pressing F1 usually when the machine is first started. Hardware is different - it is reached via control panel after windows is running. If the BIOS shows the drive as installed and windows does not see it - then the problem is that the drive has no partition or is not formatted correctly. Partition the drive first, then format it and windows will then "see" it and identify it. If the BIOS of the machine cannot "see" the drive and list it - possibly the cabling or jumper setting is wrong, for example you cannot install two master drives or two slave drives on the same cable. If they are both new and you are trying to put them both on the same controller at the same time one will have to be changed. Another possibility is that the controller is disabled in the BIOS, it will not see a drive then either. If the bios does not "see" the drive at all after these steps - the drive is likely defective. Most drives without a "driver" if working correctly will install as a generic drive and appear in windows.Installing the correct Motherboard drivers such as Intel Chipset drivers from the Intel site will then allow the bios after booting to correctly ID the drive and install drivers if it needs them. Intel has a Chip Utility which will ID your board chipset to get the correct drivers for it. You might also try enabling or disabling the plug and play OS option in the bios. When plug and play is enabled bios settings can be altered by windows, when disabled (non plugplay) windows works around what the bios tells windows it has for hardware to install other devices.
there are two parameters that control the cpu speed, one is fsb and the other is the frecuency of ram, make sure your cpu supports what you have and i dont remember where exactly are the options in the bios, but i had the same motherboard and i know they are arroun there just make sure to select 200 mhz for your memory if it is 400 mhz ok? and then make sure cpu supports fsb 400 so your fsb must be 400 in the bios... if you change somethings in the bios and after saving changes and rebooting the motherboard does not respond you just have to take the lithium battery off for 5 minutes and disconnect power cables or move the cmos jumper to reset position and you will be back in zero to keep trying, you cannot damage anything by just trying, but never try to give more tension to ram or any part.
