Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB.
There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port.
The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual.
All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu.
At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

Good luck rafiqbrush!
Thank you for using fixya.

    You stated you have window installed on both drives. Not good.

    Windows will restart because it does not know which windows it should load. I'm not going to list what the windows boot.ini should show for your XP SP2.

    While windows is installed on both drives.

    Of course each drive boots by them its self!

    Install one drive. Than format it with the windows CD.

    Shut down the system. Move the formatted drive to SATA port 3 & connect your drive with windows on it to port 1. Now try booting the system. Windows "will" run. Even though you may have the bios setup correctly windows still sees two separate working boot files & it will just restart. Windows see's a dual boot system & both windows are using the same name. (Will not work)! Only one drive can not have windows installed on it.



    You posted,

    (While both the HDD run well if i connecte separately).

    That means you have windows XP installed on both drives.



    Now if you can't understand all this than say so!

    Three ppl have answered you & everyone missed the mark because no one read all 3 of your post.

I want to install xp sp2 on Sata HDD The motherboard is P5RD1-VM but there is error set up did not find any hard drive plz tell me settings of bios to sata compataibale


It's likely a problem with your connection cable from the HDD to the motherboard. The bios shouldn't have to be set up for the HDD to be recognized through a sata port.

I have problem in asus A8V-vm motherboard in that hard disk is not detected in BIOS but Win-XP is working properly and when I tries to install new windows XP it shows an error that hard disk cannot be...


Asus A8V-VM Motherboard coming with SATA RAID option, thats why you could not see the detected HDD in system BIOS. But you can see the the detected HDD in RAID BIOS. You can enter to RAID BIOS that will pop up after system BIOS. If you are using old version of WinXP it will not detect the RAID controller of you motherboard. Thats why you cannot able to install WinXP. While you booting from WinXP CD press F6 key when the WinXP installer prompted for third party driver. Copy the RAID driver provider in driver CD to a Floppy Disk (INF file) and insert it, hit enter to continue the installation. If you are using WinXP Service pack 2 or higher you do not need this step it will automatically detect the HDD.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

AHCI


choose RAID mode.. that should enable AHCI. (as per wikipedia) on your motherboard so that means.. that if you're installing the os on this hdd you may want to use the raid driver for it which is likely what's in the ASUS cd you got so your os get to use the hdd as it's meant to be used.

you may also want to make sure you're using the right sata connector on your motherboard: check page 33

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-VM


the problem could laso lay in your cables.. it's know the average may be affected by faulty SATA cable or faulty SATA power cable (powersupply issue)

you may also want to run a backup of your data and then run a defrag and a checkdisk on the drive, and it's probably also worth it to rung Seatools (download from this page: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/ ) to check the health of your hd.

Also try to update the SATA controller drivers or the motherboard chipset
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P5B-VM

lastly, post the results of your tests here on fixya or better yet: in here: http://forums.seagate.com for further follow up.

try each recommendation one at a time and then test the speed of your hd to see if there's improvement.. make sure you back up before you do anything drastic.

good luck (it took me 2 hours to pos

Not read actually


It is not about the motherboard. It is about windows. When setting up windows (New install), windows may not see all of your drive. That's OK. Once windows has finished installing & all your drivers have been installed, please update windows.

Once Windows SP1 & SP2 have been installed Windows will see all of your hard drive.
Windows 98 can see a max of 64GB & windows 98SE, 137GB. Win XP can see a max of 2 exobytes.

(What is 1exobyte? = EB. In decimal terms, an exabyte is a billion gigabytes).

Enjoy!
