New Build HD Troubles

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Recently got a P D 820, Asus P5LD2 Deluxe, eVGA 7800GT, 2x512 OCZ. Everything is fine, but the mobo won't detect my hard drives. I went into the BIOS and it doesn't detect anything in the way of HDs. I know it is connected in the right spot, so I unplugged all HDs but the one I want to put the OS onto. Computer starts to boot from the WIN XP cd and then all of a sudden I get a bsod. It says something about harddrives and such. Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Is it SATA discs? If it is, you might have to enable SATA Bootrom in bios.
Bsod often means defektiv or incompatible hardware. Is it a new disc?
Have you tried other discs? Did it work before? Have you made sure of jumpersettings?

Generally, if you want better help, you have to be more informativ of your system.
Like:
SATA? (1/2)? / IDE?
1/2controlers? (onboard)?
Is disc set as Master if IDE?
Is disk pluged into a master port/controler if SATA?
Updated your bios?

If theyre SATA get the LATEST windows XP install drivers off the manufacuters website. Remember to turn off BIOS shadowing and other settings that may get in the way. If the drive is SATAII try setting it to SATAI using the jumpers on the drive.

if they're IDE make sure you dont have two drives set as master\\slave on the same IDE channel. I usually set them both to cable select to make things easier.

I am using IDE. They are both set exactly how they were with my old system. I didn't even take them out of the case. That is why this is so weird. On the mobo...there are 3 IDE inputs...PRI_IDE, PRI_EIDE, and SEC_EIDE. I have tried both of the PRI inputs. When I am plugged into the PRI_EIDE...the mobo detects both of the HDs in its POST, but then in bios setup it does not. In PRI_IDE...nothing is detected at all.

Here is the exact error code:

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart you computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Sounds strange. Can you update your bios? If you haven't done that allready.

The errormessage is telling you, that you have either a defective or a wrongly configured disk. Or that there is some conflict with the disk and the controler.

Try the manual for the mobo. See if anything needs to be enabled, or even "jumped". I don't see the jumping as a real posibility, but tjek it anyway. I asume you have already set the mobo at defaults and tryed that?

You are right in using the EIDE-PRIMARY port for the OS disk. Well you can use others, but that would be the "by the book" way to do it.

Have you tried with another disk instead? (to ruel out the disk)

So I should be using the PRI_EIDE for my HDs??? I would have though I should use the PRI_IDE??? The bios is current. I have set everything to default once already...but I will do that again and see where it gets me...I will do anything at this point to get up and running.

Try doing thing step by step.

1 Only put one (the master) disk for the OS on the primary port. No other drives or CD roms etc.

See if that shows up in bios

2 If it does, try putting your CD/DVD rom on the secondary port as the Master there.

Let me know

You are trying to a fresh install I hope. I have had an issue just like yours when I was trying to repair a partition I had set up already because I did not want to delete the data on my disk on a new build.

Another thing you could try is only connecting critical components and giving that a whirl.

Have checked all your power cords to ensure that you are getting power to your HD? It should be spinning once your computer is started and if it is not then you may have an issue there.

That is a great system, a good base for lots of upgrades. That motherboard is really good, supports the 9xx series dual cores, up to 1066 FSB, very versitile.


Now the bad news.

You need a SATA HD


The ICH7 is not that friendly to old technology. My P5WD2 uses the same set-up. Luckily I recognized this when I built my sister's system using the P5LD2 and got her a SATA up front. This is a complaint I have about how these boards are listed. Even on the ASUS site it does not mention this problem unless you root around in the forums. There are listed as having 3 ATA for 6 devices......but that's technically not correct.

The 2 red buses, down on the bottom of the board are for storage only, they can not be connected to any boot device, and actually don't even recognize Optical drives (like a CD or DVD drive). They also don't even work unless you load drivers for them during the Windows install using F6 (you have to load the drivers from the CD onto a floppy and right at the start of the install it says 'Press F6 to install 3rd party drivers').

The blue bus, coming off the side, is for Optical drives and can be used to boot from. I have not tried attaching a PATA hard drive to that bus as I have 2 optical drives, so I had to buy a SATA HD, but in theory it should work, if you only have one CD/DVD drive.

Again, in theory, as I have not tried to load Windows on a PATA on one of these ICH7 boards.

The only thing I can think of is maybe change the setting for master/slave on your drives. I would think having HD as master for your configuration would be best, but maybe it has to be set as slave for the install only?

Of course, again, the best solution is get a SATA drive and use your old PATA as extra storage.
