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...

  • TechGuyLive Sep 28, 2008

    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

1 of 2 possible problems. You have a bad USB cord or the controller card wentt out in the external drive. If cord works w/another peice of hardware, then it's controller card. To test if HD is bad, remove it from the case and connect it to your pc via SATA cable to mother board and use power from pc power supply. If you can access the HD here, just purchase a new external closure.Don't spend a lot of money, they're relitively inexpensive. If you don't have the necessary cabling, you might need to visit a local reair shop or friend that has the ability and cabling. Most all pc repair shops will check the HD out to see if its works and also carry the external HD cases.

Why wont my Western Digital WD Passport 250GB Portable Drive 250 GB Hard Drive work?


Several possibilities:

* bad USB port in your computer (try another USB port)
* messed-up copy of Windows (try connecting to a different computer)
* damaged USB cable between computer and the Passport (replace it)
* bad disk-drive inside the enclosure (replace it)
* bad USB-to-disk-drive adapter (buy a new "empty" enclosure)

Check the warranty on it, to see if W.D. will replace it, at minimal cost to you. If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- buy a new Passport through their web-site, and you qualify for a discount on your purchase.

250gb sata hard disk to 845 glad mother board


Hello all. I have the same issue. My MB is 845G [P4 2.4 Ghz] and SATA harddisk I need to install is Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s interface, I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this motherboard should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the supports SATA I [these are cheaper].
