New problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well I'm convinced that every last step Im gonna need help with cause they always have problems...

Here is the error message that comes up during installation of windows.

"A problem has been found and windows has been shut down to prevent any damage to your computer."

Now I bet this is because of the hard drive, It said to press F6 to setup SATA hard drives which I did, I waited for a while then it brought up a screen that said press S to specify which I did, then it said no floppy drive was found, which makes sense since I disabled it on my BIOS cause I dont have one. There are no other options at all so I just let it continue, and thats whne the error message comes up.

My HD did not come with a CD of any kind at all so I dont know how its suppose to be setup, and the motherboard CD didnt do anything. So how do I set this thing up?

You usually don't need to do the 'F6' thing when you only have a single SATA drive. Only when you have a few of them in RAID do you need to do this

You should have been fine. Make sure that the SATA controller in BIOS is set to IDE emulation or something like that.

In Short-- for those of you Mobo biulders who never really use RAID, and figure that you don't need it-- In this Case, You DO.
  • In the BIOS you have go to MAIN Go down to IDE CONFIGURATION
  • Inside you will see CONFIGURE SATA As --> [STANDARD IDE]
Counter-Intuitively, this is what was messing you up. Change this Option to [RAID]

All the other options below this selection flip to something totally different. Leave the New default settings as they are. And NOTE: This setting has NO effect on the P-ATA IDE drive if you are using one as a boot drive. This time however, when you boot, as in my case, to Windows 2000, the SATA drives will NOT show up in My Computer or under Computer Managment--> Drive Management.
You will also note that at boot-up Windows will be prompting you that it has discovered a RAID controller.

If you are using an IDE DVD/CDrom, pop in the ASUS Mobo disc and Windows may find the RAID drivers. If Not then you navigate down to:

Root:\\Drivers\\Chipset\\ICH\\Intel\\Drivers\\win3 2Install the drivers-- and reboot for Good measure.
  • IF you were REALLY lucky and your DVD/CDrom is a SATA version-- you need to pop the ASUS Mobo disc into another Machine and create a floppy from:
Root:\\Drivers\\Chipset\\ICH\\Intel\\Driver\\maked isk\\f6flpyXX.exe

Because you found that when you flipped the BIOS Configuration over to RAID, your DVD/CDrom disappeared. Windows won't see it or the other SATA drives until you feed it the RAID install files.

Again-- Install and Reboot.

When Windows comes back up-- you will see your SATA drives in the Management Pane with the Appropriate number of GB's associated with them--Thanks to the RAID/SCSI Controller install.

Continue with your Installation and Setup as you normally would.

WARNING-- IF you Left the IDE CONFIGURATION in DEFAULT Non-RAID settings, Windows is seeing your large 300-plus GB SATA drives-- but it's cutting them off at the 131-137 GB limit and sees nothing else past that point. And it seems like it will function as normal-- just with artificially stunted space. This is NOT OKAY. Any formatted partition on that drive is fundamentally incorrect and not to be trusted, and Lord Murphy will insure that you will regret it at the worst possible moment.
This has helped my freind out in the past with installing SATA on his older ASUS board...

Well I know its detected in the BIOS and everything is on auto, I did not see anything about IDE emulation though.

this is probably for older boards indeed, and likely for pre-SP2 Windows XP only. If you have Windows XP with SP2 (slipstreamed CD), then the hdd size limit does not matter.

I've done single SATA drive on quite a few board, from the socket 478 P4P800 SE onward. Never had a problem, and always had them on 'Configure Sata as standard IDE' or similar. Never RAID when using a single drive. Odd that Asus wuold advice this. Good if it works though

I tried every last setting possible for the IDE configuration and nothing works, when I set advanced mode to P-ATA and restart it comes up on my BIOS as the secondary IDE master, but if its S-ATA then it comes up as the fourth one. But either way its not detected, windows finds a problem and stops.

I noticed the HD was connected to the SATA 2 on my mobo so I switched it to SATA 1 and now the computer wont even start up. The heatsink and everything is on and running...nothing coming up on the monitor and the heatsink isnt even slowing down.......
