Problems with an ASUS P5GD1 motherboard, hard disks, and installing Windows XP
Posted on 2004-10-21
I’m in a bit of a bind here. I’ve built a pc with an asus P5GD1 motherboard and have connected my 2 dvd-roms and 2 HDD’s to the motherboard. The bios recognizes all of the above, however when I boot up from my Win XP setup disk, it tells me it cannot detect any of my hard disks, despite the fact they are both detected by the bios. The dvd-roms and IDE, as are the hard disks.The hard disks are a Seagate barracuda 7200.7 200gb ST3200822A Ultra ATA/100, and a Western Digital 120gb WD1200 EIDE.
Please advise, as I've spent atleast 4 man-days trying to sort this out and am at my wits end
