ASUS A8V Deluxe and SATA Hard Drive | TechPowerUp Forums

Your name or email address: I am now completly z8v and not sure what to do next. I booted from the XP CD. Might want to try them.

So I had to buy a floppy drive: Thanks so much for this help, it had taken me 2 days of trying to get my A8V-UA board to recognise the SATA hard drive, the most frustrating thign was that neither the promise or fasttrak drivers that came with the ASUS mobo on the support cd worked! It would suck having to re-install everything.

Look this thread over. If I disconnect the cables attached to the new disk and reconnect the old disk the original problem is shown, which I am asuming means the cables are OK. Thanks guys for all the advise to help keep my sanity!
