I tried 3 different sticks of RAM in different sockets, same problem. You may need to plug them into one ide ribbon and put that on the promise IDE controller. What are the jumpers set to on the hard drive. Setup then took off and ran to completion without a hitch. Nov 8, at 7: Jun 22, Posts:

Help!, my new Asus A8V won’t recognize my 1 SATA drive – Ars Technica OpenForum

FatForester New Member May 17, Everytime i try to load the drivers from the floppy disk it sais “insert manufacturers hardware support disk” then press enter when ready. The only drives i’ve ever seen it list in bios is the 1 ide drive, which does me no good. Reading Further the Promise Raid Controller Configuration can be changed from Raid to i believe non raid, just read the motherboard manual.

Look in the Bios under Onboard Devices Configuration. I dunno much about this, as mine is a Siliconimage The lack of response from a hard drive can be symptomatic of many things.

ASUS A8V: SATA drive recognised as SCSI…

Nov 10, Posts: Saat have no problem booting x86 32 bit windows but whenever i try booting windows 64 my pc just keep restarting before it gets into windows. Sat Oct 30, As Windows is first setting up, at the first blue screen hit the [F6] key to load a third party mass storage driver. If every thing is set properly.


My IDE cdrom drivers are seen as scsi, my sata as ahci, but its fairly normal. Tue Nov 02, 3: My drive works fine when it’s not being detected as a SCSI drive. ElledanAug 5, Mon Oct 25, 8: Typically fdisk was used to add partitions, etc.

The first one is recognized by Windows Explorer. Some older boards had really strange issues with sata and ide, check Asus forums or Faqs? Can I do this without destroying the raid 0 and destroying the data on that array? The DiamondMax10 needs a firmware upgrade.

Please help i am going crazy.
