I had a Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard which went for warranty. In the mean time I purchased a new one because I could not afford the wait. When the mother board came after the warranty I decided to replace my Asus P5W Deluxe with this one. My previous Windows Vista was picked up by the new motherboard I just had to get it validated by Microsoft. However my previous motherboard was configured for a Raid/AHCI configuration and this motherboard by default had SATA configured as IDE. I therefore changed the configuration of the SATA to Raid. But when ever I do that the motherboard after starting and after the initial screens stalls and then gives a blank screen. I in fact also wanted to install Windows Seven but on a Raid/AHCI configuration. I can only get the screen back after removing the motherboard cell and reverting the SATA to its default value of IDE.
What has gone wrong? Is this motherboard once again faulty or this motherboard only supports SATA as IDE or whatever
