BlackOmega, try it without Service Pack 3 and see how that goes. To be honest SP3 is not a "must have". You can still download all the regular security updates through Microsoft's website. Service Pack 2 on the other hand is a different story

Good luck

M$ never released a SP3 for XP Pro X64 bit. I think thlnk3r may be right on the money when saying that SP3 is not a must have service pack for XP. If any thing it was prolly M$ way of testing for the next OS platform

XP x86 and XP (Pro) x64 are very different when it comes to service packs. The SPs definitely don't contain the same updates.
The x86 SP2 came in 2004, which was before Microsoft had even released the XP Professional x64 edition.
The x64 SP2 on the other hand, is from 2007 which, of course, makes it a lot more up to date than the x86 SP2 which is almost 5yrs old.

Ok so heres an update to my folding woes. After re-installing the OS (again) I only updated to SP2. It worked fine for a while but started locking up after wards. So I decided to use the Sil chipset, but for some reason it has disappeared. This is my CFX3200 board btw. Anyway, when I had the RAID utility enabled on the Sil chipset it would pick up the drive. Hell I even did a low level format on it. But in the BIOS none of the Sil SATA ports show up. It only shows ports1-4 which is the ULi chipset.

So I guess I either need a new board or different GPUs' that'll fit on my other Ultra-D (top heatsink gets in the way on these GSOs').

BlackOmega, this motherboard is being a pain isn't it? SATA ports disappearing from the BIOS is not a good sign. Did you reset the BIOS to see if they reappear? I know a low voltage CMOS battery can cause these types of issues. I for one can speak from experience

Have you tried avoiding the raid setup and just running a single drive?

Good luck

On the CFX3200, hard drives mounted on the SiI-controlled SATA ports never show unless you run some kind of RAID array on them (by pressing F6 during WinXP installation). You also have to enable the SiI ports to RAID before installing WinXP on these ports.

(I forget which settings in the BIOS pre-enable the SiI ports, but there is a setting there, for sure. Look under the RAID settings.)

From what I've read, the reason why the SiI SATA ports aren't "active" right out of the box is that DFI stuffed so much information into the CMOS EPROM chip there's simply no room left for the necessary code for them in the EPROM chip.

BlackOmega, another option you can explore (one I'm ready to, if all else fails) is to get an inexpensive SATA controller card. The ULi controller is just too goofy on too many of these CFX3200s; unless you're willing to run a RAID array off of the SiI controller, you're begging for problems with the ULi controller.

I'll be preparing to revisit my own CFX3200 very soon, with a RAID0 array with plain ol' Raptors off of the SiI controller. We'll see how well that works...

That it is thinker. I reset the BIOS, no change. Well the RAID was enabled from my other drives so i know it was actually picking the drive up. But once I shut the RAID controller down in the BIOS it just keeps telling me there is no drive :swearing:

Yeah theres a setting for enabling the Sil RAID controller in the genie bios settings submenu, then its PCI config (or something along those lines, 3rd one down on the list).
And it seemed the ULi controller worked ok for a while then it just started locking up. At first it happened after several hours then it consistently was happening almost immediately after getting in to windows.

While I was sitting on the "throne" I had a thought, if I can find a cheap IDE drive that would suit my purposes just fine. Hell even a 20GB one would do. The only thing that would be on it is the OS, Adobe and F@H/F@Hmon.

I'm about to go pick up my cat from the groomers and I think I'll stop by this computer store that has used stuff. Maybe I can score. That would be great as I have 4 cores that could be folding not doing a dang thing.

BlackOmega, sounds like to me that raid controller is just borked. Wasn't that the original problem with these motherboards? Such a pain.

I think a IDE drive would suit you just fine for this setup. If it's going to be sitting in the corner of your room Folding then it really doesn't need to have a beefy drive. Raid 1 would have been nice. You could also just clone the drive after everything is setup.

Good luck

Im not sure if this is the exact issue with these boards, but the ULi is quirky to put it mildly. But it controls a lot more too, like the pcie cards, usb, etc.etc Basically everything runs through it.

And well I've found an 80GB IDE ultra 100 HDD for $35, so I just went ahead and got it. Installing service pack 2 as we "speak".
They had a raid controller there for the same price. But now I've got enough parts to make yet another rig.
Now if I could only find another NB cooler that would fit under a GPU And 2 more good folding GPUs' that I could power off of a 500w PSU, I'd be golden. Then I'd be contributing ~20k PPD.

PS: Im also trying something new. Im not installing any ULI drivers, lets see what happens
