Change BIOS to IDE


Not sure what you are trying to do. BIOS controls IDE hardware, which handles the hard drive.

Remove the IDE hard drive, and connect the SATA drive to SATA0 (zero) port. Install the OS on SATA drive. You may have to check BIOS. F2 on boot should get you there.

you will need a Windows boot disk / Windows install disk / WinXP disk to reboot the PC and install / or repair your OS

rescue disk will not boot your PC
to enable that you need to enter the BIOS, press F1, F2 or Del to enter BIOS , then you need to look for the BOOT seq in BIOS, change that to CD DVD drive as the 1st boot device, Save and Exit and insert the boot CD and restart
this should give you the solution

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24


Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

There are many configuration settings, although i personally would hunt down an SCSI hard disk, many will fit from many other models just like IDE ones
