I have 2 of these boards and now I have a problems with both.Originally I bought 2 of these and one was set up with IDE and the other SATA at a computer shop. A friend built them for me.I reset the bios in one not thinking and the other one I want it set up SATA. For the life of me I can't get them to take a driver.
These are my steps. I put a Windows XP disk in and boot.When it gets to the message to hit F6 I hit it, I have an ABit floppy that has drivers AND I downloaded the drivers from Abit and put on another floppy ( appears to be a different set). None will work, always gives me a message that no storage device is attached.I can feel the HD spinning and it's a little warm. I try rebooting the pc on each driver to see if it will make a difference, I even move the SATA cable to the second hook up on mobo. I even have a Vista cd and Win7 and they both stop after I see a screen that they are loading. I have even tried different HD's. I really can't believe both have died though. I spent ( literally!) 4 hours on hold from Abit.....the 20 minute wait time message got old. Thanks for ANYONE that can help.
