SATA HD = SEEN IN BIOS
SATA OPTICAL DRIVE = SEEN IN BIOS
SATA CONFIGS IN BIOS, EITHER DISABLED OR USE SATA II for the controllers, which this is an on board sata controllers
I have a friend computer that I was going to wipe clean since his system was freezing and could not boot into so he wanted to have it wiped, no problem right?? WRONG
I can boot with the XP (NO SP) Disk and format the drive and such, restart, no problem...
when I get to the GUI Setup.....at 39, 38, 37,36, 35 freezes, does nothing...no indication that there were any problems...
So I did that a few times and still nothing.... only thing that is connected is the mouse/keybd
So I tried the Windows 7 Ultimate, this time it will not even give me a "boot to cd press any key" nothing....
I'm stuck on this one....I'm currently have XP SP3 on disk so I'm going to try this one...
I googled this same issue and saw that of course XP (no sp) will not have drivers for the sata drive....and that it has an issue with the usbhub.sys i think file that freezes..so they said try sp2...well I'm just going to use the sp3 and see what happens but why I can't use the win 7 ultimate dvd? Whatever OS installs will be fine with me...
p.s. There is no option to change the SATA to say ide, or anything else, it's either enabled sata 1 = default or disabled only..
