Can't install Hard Drive MS Server 2003

I recently purchased a new 250 GB WD SATA HD, and I am trying to install it on my Combo Z. The support disk that came with the board was stolen from me so I downloaded all the support files from ASRock's site. I created the floppy for use to install SATA RAID drives with XP. I load the CD and boot from it and press F6 so that I can choose to use the RAID drivers provided by ASROCK (Windows is unable to see the HD if I do not provide the driver manually). When the installation asks for the driver, I put in the floppy with the drivers. I then get an error telling me that the first line in the txtsetup.oem file is invalid. I have been fighting this thing for a week. I have another WD SATA 80 GB drive as well. I cannot seem to get either to be seen. HELP PLEASE! Help me please! I want to install windows on my new Sata harddisk. I copied the NC61SXP file to floppy and insterted it when it was needed with F6. But its written that: The file txtsetup.oem could not be found. what can I do now?

    follow the same procedure , load the CD and boot from it and press F6 so that I can choose to use the appropriate RAID drivers provided according to the ICH chipset your motherboard is having. and select the SATA AHCI ICH6,7,8 ot 9 driver...

    If you would like to make use of the SATA controller's AHCI features, you should enable this BIOS feature. But please note that enabling this feature requires you to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.

    AHCI is the acronym for the Advanced Host Controller Interface. It is a new interface specification that allows the SATA controller driver to support advanced features

    When disabled, the SATA controller disables its AHCI functions when the computer boots up.

    When enabled, the SATA controller enables its AHCI features when the computer boots up

SOURCE: Sata hd, installing windows

Hi nveronika,
First things first. Find the name of you're SATA hard disk drive.
Please go to the manufacture's web site & download the floppy drive setup/utilities bootable software or creat a bootable CD from the manufactures site. Boot the system with their software & setup you're hard disk drive which will run in a DOS like window. (This should resovle the blue screen issue).
There are two different revision for the motherboard GA-M52l-S3
(Revisions, 2.0 uses the NVIDIA® GeForce 6100 / nForce 430 chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2818
& (Revision 1.0 which uses the NVIDIA® nForce 520LE Chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2634
Which is you're motherboard? Once you find the correct motherboard you can download the the needed software directly from the web site & create the correct floppy disk needed when pressing the F6 key during windows installation. If you still get an error message try another fresh floppy disk. (Corruption of files to a floppy usually mean the floppy drive is dirty or bad or the floppy disk is bad). It is also possible that the data cable to the floppy drive is loose or defective. Downloading directly from Gigabyte is suggested over using the CD.

Good luck nveronika!
Mike

Gigabyte ga41 combo motherboard doesn't detect my second hard disk


Hello you can download the manual here:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3505#manual

Adobe reader is needed, to read the content.

Try to enter the bios, and look for the drive, it must be seen in here.

Do you have all the drivers installed, for the mainboard ??

The drive must also be formated, so it can be used.

Good luck

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device)
Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel.
Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed).
