Building A Computer And I Get A MBUltra 133 Is Not Installed

MBultra133 (PDC202276) Bios is not installed because there are no drives attached" At the detecting stage it hesitates for 6secs (reports the bios not installed message) and then proceeds to boot I did too. Make sure to get everything back into the same position as before. Also I never see the usual bios info on boot. have a peek here

I had previously set the onboard Promise chip to "ATA Enable" mode in the BIOS as opposed to the "RAID Enable" mode. The problem was a simple one in that he didn't run the Maxtor install disk.. I went to install it on this computer and cannot find a SATA port on the motherboard. There's more room behind the hard drives for those cables, which means you can close the case without stuffing them in.

I've tried flashing bios, and almost everything. If so, you've got to create a RAID array to be able to boot off it in the RAID configuration.

  2. you can read the new drive on this system?
  3. See if it will boot to the desktop like this.
  4. first is Award Modular Bios, which checks for the drives, and recognizes them, and then the MBUltra, which gives the error...
  5. I could swear I plugged it in.
  6. Incase you are not aware, ATA mode just adds two extra IDE ports, both of which can have a master/slave combination adding 4 extra devices in total.
  7. Make sure your DVD drive is the first drive on the list (or your USB drive if you're installing from a flash drive), and that the hard drive you'll be installing
  8. Kind regards, Bo Answers : Flshdrive?or hard drive?
  9. Don't be those people.
  10. HTH PS Next time I boot up I will try to remember to make notes!

You might also want to check your floppy drive connection. Protip: Push the graphics card into the slot until the lock (at the far end of the slot) snaps into place.

Find your ... This is the first computer I have built from new, so I suppose I am not doing badly. Anyways must run, my toasters on fire I overclocked that 2. Otherwise mine boots up and runs fine, till I get into 3Dgames where I have all kinds of problems, but thats another story.

So although I know virtually nothing about all this, upon reading this thread this is a "shot" at an answer.

When I hit the power switch, the GPU literally fried. The RAID does not seem to be turned on in the CMOS. Note that some BIOS utilities split this up into two menus—one for setting the boot order for your different media (CD-ROM, hard disks, USB disks) and another that lets you choose Many GPUs need more than one 6-pin or 8-pin connector, so be sure to fill all the holes.

Its worked for me... navigate here Installation fine and system appears stable. Esc or Enter to continue. If you are using the IDE function use the IDE drivers and follow the previous steps.

i.e. Start up your computer and it should automatically boot into the Windows installer. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. Check This Out I can feel many sleepness nights coming on.

are you using an 80 way cable? That goes to the positive (+) terminal on the stupidly tiny cable-keeper or the stupidly tiny pins on the motherboard. Because you have no devices fitted to the RAID (I'll assume IDE3 & IDE4) then there is no need for the system to install the RAID BIOS and take up valuable

I have found this interesting FAQs list that also impacts on my GA8-IEXP board about the need to use a particular "new" version of the controller utility. Then the computer goes to the Windows XP loading screen and then to white. Anyone have ANY ideas? http://everfreetech.com/building-a/building-a-computer-suggestions-are-welcome.html Because the bios is not installed does this account for the fact that I can see no usual bios info on boot.

In your case there is none as you have found.\015\012\015\012So the best option is always upgrading to a new motherboard in case you need to add more SATA drives.\015\012\015\0 ...
