WinXP only booting with XP CD in drive! Maxtor SATA drive - Abit KV7

After installing XP my system now will only boot with the XP CD in the drive and CD-ROM set as first boot device. If I selected Hard-Drive as the boot option, it just says "NO BOOT DRIVE DETECTED" or similar.

If the XP CD is in however, it says "Press any key to boot from CD..." which if you ignore then proceeds to boot from the SATA drive!

I have a DVD ROM and a CD-Wrtier both set as primary on the IDE-0 and IDE-1, respectively, and a Maxtor 7200 RPM 80 Gig SATA drive.

I installed the SATA driver (F6 during installation and used the provided floppy from Abit).

I think I've tried all combinations of boot options in BIOS.

I can't be the only one in the world with this problem!

Anyone seen and resolved this?

I have also posted this on the motherboards forum, but think it might be better in this one!

Both your DVD Rom and CD Writer are set as Primary? Does this mean you have your Hard Drive set as a slave?

If so, I suggest you put the Hard Drive on the IDE-0 set as Master, and put the DVD Rom and CD Writer on IDE-1 set as Master and Slave respectively.

It's a SATA drive, so it is on a seperate controller.

Also, the only BIOS on the website is the release version that came with the board.

The thing that is confusing me is that it's A-bits flagship Athlon board, with Microsoft's flagship OS and a well known drive manufacturer. I can't believe I am the only one who has seen this problem!

Need to set your bios to boot from the sata in the in Bios. It's either going to say "sata" or "SCSI".

Hiya,

I'll give it a try, but I'm sure I tried all of the settings.

Cheers,

As said above, set the the boot sequence to SCSI. On my SOYO there is <b>another</b> place just below boot sequence that wants to know which sata to go to first (sata1, sata2,) I use sata3 for a single drive, and sata3, sata4 for my raid.

Right, there isn't a SCSI option. I basically have "Hard Drive", "Floppy", "USB - SCSI", "USB - Floppy" and "CD-ROM". The only one that works is "CD-ROM" when the XP CD is in the drive as before.

Very strange. My old KT7 board had a "ATA100-RAID" option to boot from.

Even though the only BIOS on the A-bit website is the relsase one, it seems to be a slightly higher version than the one I have, I am going to try flashing it so see if that sorts it.

If that doesn't work, I'm stuck!

Cheers,

i thought on abits site it had release 1,1 for the bios
Make sure it is not set to raid and that it is enabled in bios
make sure that the partition is active

Try usb scsi. Once it see's there is no usb it will go to scsi, I think. Just guessing. I can't hurt to try, I mean, it doesn't work now.

Sorted it!

Thanks guys.

It was the BIOS. Despite BIOS version 1.1 on ABit's site being the "release" version with no bug fixes listed, my board had BIOS version 1.0.

Cheers,
