Trouble installing 2 WD Sata on Asus a7n8x-e deluxe

Is this something I need to update the bios to enable or is there a way to only update the SATA driver on the mobo? Click here to Register a free account now! But this problem threw me for a loop. I know there is a sata connection on this mb but I am not sure which sata type hd to get. Ask a question and give support.

You are posting a reply to: I called Asus and they were very curt and unhelpful. Still, it will not work using the SATA slots that are on the mobo itself. I had 2 WDD raptors running in a RAID 0 configuration until 1 was damaged and fails to power up I removed that one and now Im trying to use just 1 raptor drive for the computer.


Immediately after the installation is completed, install all aeus latest drivers for the motherboard from the pre-prepared CD or flashdrive.

Hi did you sort this out?

Track this discussion and email me when there are updates. Do you already have an account? Javascript Disabled Detected You currently have javascript disabled. It should be easily achievable. I have read other threads that have said what files I need, and I have the newest files on the floppy.

Here’s how I was able to install WinXP: Just follow the instructions, very easy to use. Then the next job, before doing anything else is to get Windows fully updated. And I have the first boot cdrom, then scsi, with all the rest disabled. Again, the problem I’m having is getting windows installed on the sata asks.

Any thoughts on that? Other benefits of registering an account are subscribing to topics and forums, creating a blog, and having no ads shown anywhere on the site. Copy the 8 files ONLY not the 2 folders to a formatted floppy disk. Not having done this before, I am not sure what it will see.
