It seems like it is not recognizing the hard drive, the error is coming from the cdrom/dvdrom. make sure that the hard drive is jumpered to slave,and the cd/dvdrom is put on the other ribbon cable set at master drive

I am using K8S MX Motherboard with OS-Windows XP. but my hard disk is not working. i want to purchase a new 160gb IDE hard drive. please tell me if it supports 160gb hard drive or not

The specs for this motherboard say it has a Utra-DMA 133, and 2 SATA 3Gbs ports.
You can connect any IDE HD, and any SATA 3 or lower HD. These standards are backwards compatible. When it comes to size, there is a 2TB MBR limit.
I would skip IDE and go directly with a SATA 3 drive.

ASUS M2N MX SE Motherboard

Check the BIOS settings at boot up to see if you can select the primary hard drive there. Several motherboards have this option and it's buried in the boot settings. Let us know how it works out and good luck...

Second harddrive

Make sure its jumper is set as slave, if you have a 40wire ribbon cable, and cable select if you are using a 80 wire ribbon cable, if it is on the same ribbon cable.
If it is on the second ide cable, by itself keep it as master.

Front Side USN dows not work in ASUS M2N MX SE

The front side port may be a "low power" USB port, it may be possible to "power" this if there is the capacity to connect a power cable to the front panel USB adapter, or there may be an aux power socket to plug into on the motherboard.
