possible that your hard drive(s) are SATA??? If so they will show on a different part of the boot sequence.
I'm assembling a new Win XP Media Center PC and using the new Intel 915 chipset in a PCI Express motherboard.
The machine is fully assembled now and fires up successfully with a good POST. Everything seems to work well but the board won't recognize my two optical drives.
After the POST, it performs an IDE scan and reports that there are two optical drives but doesn't show the hard drive. But the hard drive is shown correctly in the BIOS and I've been able to load DOS data into it so I know it's working well. It just doesn't show up in the "IDE scan".
I can't figure out why the MB doesn't see the optical drives. And I can't figure out why the IDE scan sees the optical drives but can't see the hard drive.
Anyone with any thoughts? Asus support is so slow I may never get this thing working the way it is.
