I recently acquired a new Maxtor SATA, and decided to use it as the master in the computer I am building. I had to set the jumper in the back of the SATA to get it to recognize, but it recognizes fine now.
My problem is this:
Every time I try to run the Maxblast 4 CD as a boot disk, it freezes up at the same point. Usually right after I click on the option to run Maxblast installation software. During this time my floppy drive sounds like it is working itself to death, but I am running the software from CD.
Also, I went ahead to try to install windows, and even with the appropriate driver, it froze at "Setup is starting windows" every time.
I have tried setting the SATA to IDE and RAID in BIOS, but neither affected performance. My specs are as follows:
ECS PT800CE-A Rev. 1.0 Mother board
P4 Prescott 3.2gHz
2x 512MB DDR PC 2700
Maxtor DiamondMax 200GB SATA
650 Watt PSU
GeForce FX 5500 PCI Video
If you need any more details, I will be more than happy to provide them.
Thanks in advance
