With new case I am using a WD Sata HD and IDE DVD and floppy. All devices are detected but i have not been able to get the floppy or dvd to boot yet.

Will report more later....
OK - update 2:33 am///

I pulled the lite-on DVD and slapped in another and it booted just fine. Not sure what is wrong with the new one.

I have noticed with this p5B Plus board, if I try to boot with a windows XP with SP2 already included, I get a blue screen of death. If I use an older XP Pro CD not yet updated for SP2, It will install XP just fine.

I am afraid I will hit the wall of blue screen death again when I update with SP2 - like happened last week with a different case, causing a complete reinstall.

Anyone else have experience with this? Thx.

Thanks.

Yeah he figured that out on page 2. As for the XP service packs, there are some issues to consider.
XP without sevice pack 1 cannot detect more then 137GB hard drives. t will detect your 320 as such. That means you will be left with a partition after installing SP2 and formatting the remaining HD space.
You also have to put the SATA drivers on a floppy to install a SATA hard drive prior to SP2. There has to be some underlying issue with your install.

It could also be an issue with the motherboard grounding out on the case (a misplaced standoff will cause this) or grounding out on the CPU cooler if you are using an aftermarket cooler with a backplate.

I have XP Pro (no service packs) that detected my 320's as such from install and used a SATA DVDRW to install XP.

You don't have to install drivers for SATA drives unless you're raiding them

Not true. If you have SP2 you dont need the drivers, but with XP (no service pack) you will have to install the SATA drivers. These drivers are seperate from the RAID drivers.

Serial ATA (SATA) drives are the latest in the hard drive fashion and, in theory, installing Windows on the drive should prove relatively simple. The problem is that Windows XP doesn’t contain the necessary drivers to allow windows to see the drive so that Windows can install it.

If you are installing Windows XP on a system where you only have Serial ATA Drives you might encounter a problem where Windows does not seem to detect your Hard Drive and reports "No mass storage device found" during an installation (this occurs in Windows NT and Windows 2000 as well). This is because there are no SATA HD drivers in Windows XP/2K/NT and you need to load 3rd party drivers (just like with many SCSI drives).

If you are loading Windows XP onto a computer with a serial ATA (SATA) hard drive, you will have to manually load the SATA drivers.

FOLLOW UP =

On install of Win Xp pre SP2, I have no problem with detection of Sata HD except that as indicated by a responder it only recognized 138 gig of 160 gig drive.

I had no choice, however, because the XP Pro with SP2 install would not take rathwer defaulting to a blue screen once it tried to load windows after loading all the drivers.

If I load SP2 on top of my successful XPPro install how do I avoid this same outcome, as it happened already once before in another case.

THanks.

I guarantee that I did in fact install XP Pro Retail with no service pack and all 3 drives showed up correctly and I usued a sata dvdrw to install.

Well, somehow I got SP2 installed. I found updated drivers for the intel p965 chipset and put on a data cd. So that is great....

now the Lite ON CD IDE is not recognized by windows where as it was before. IT is recognized by the board during initial boot process.

I have played with the JM settings (IDE vs AHCPI) or whatever the appreviations are , as well as the SATA Enhanced and IDE settings to no avail.

Anyone have a clue?

Thanks.

Ok, sorry.

I could never install without the SP and all my sources said it couldnt be done without the drivers on a floppy. But since you said you did, I guess it can be done.
