If that's the case, is that means I need to put in the jumper on the right position for the SATA II drive so that the VIA chipset could detect it?BTW,
You have 2 drives, so that should work. They are not showing up in the bios. Download / Print this Topic Download this topic in different formats or view a printer friendly version. So I had to reinstall Windows also.
There is a MakeDisk.exe utility in that driver package, and that is what you run to make the floppy. This looks like kind of a unusual mobo. BIOS setting have an influence on what linux sees, loads, and can, and an update may be an improvement. Disable the ACPI function within BIOS and you should be good to go.

That screen only displays devices on the PRI_IDE1 and SEC_IDE1 ports. If only you installed OS onto it. If you could obtain more RAM, your linux experience might improve. clanx Nov 24 2007, 10:33 PM Show posts by this member only | Post #4 Getting Started Group: Junior Member Posts: 172 Joined: Oct 2006
when try other linux like mandriva adn knoppix it just cannot detect the sata HDD, it maybe couse with driver for the sata drive. this contact form To get around this, you need to add the "acpi=off" string to the "menu.lst" file once linux is installed. I have installed Mandriva 2009 on my ASUS P4V8X-X motherboard system with a 1TB SATA2 Hitachi hard drive. In case your not sure exactly where to add the string, here's a sample of what mine looks like: Code: title linux kernel (hd0,4)/boot/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux root=UUID=206fe079-dfa7-4291-b4a2-223df6ef3634 resume=UUID=d2465490-de3a-11dd-8b0b-01a86f4495df splash=silent acpi=off vga=788 initrd

I have download the freespire linux and xubuntu then try to boot the live cd but it just the same case. ** i have partition the hardisk using Partition Magic and The dialog should allow you to choose "VIA Serial ATA RAID Controller", and that is what you want.
If you'd like to contribute content, let us know. Meaning, your Windows will probably not boot without enabling ACPI.

DO NOT use Ezflash to update 1005 BIOS **** Please use afudos v2.07 (or later) or ASUS update v5.21 (or later) to update 1005 bios. WebWalker Nov 25 2007, 09:52 AM Show posts by this member only | Post #12 Computer Geek Group: Senior Member Posts: 12,132 Joined: May 2005 From: Puchong, Selangor
Once the "menu.lst" file is edited with that string, you can re-enable the ACPI function within BIOS, reboot, and forget about it. I will read the thread about updating the bios and try that, if that doesn't work i will try to test the disk in another computer just to see if it So please let us know how far you got -- what things succeeded before your computer hung. (Also -- do you know formatting a large HDD takes a while?). used76a Nov 25 2007, 03:38 AM Show posts by this member only | Post #9 Getting Started Group: Junior Member Posts: 56 Joined: May 2006
You would be surprised at the performance gains this will bring to your system. As for your problem, have you thought of updating the mother board BIOS, as well as looking at the BIOS settings? is this info for real? You might also try the above advice on ACPI with the use of a Knoppix 5.1.1 live-cd and the Knoppix cheatcodes to test that variable with and without ACPI in the
the jumper had eliminated the Hardware Failed to initialize message but it is still not visible in both Windows and BIOS either.Perhaps on the Windows itself, some drivers had to be I have also tryed to install windows xp & install the drivers by pressing F6.
