« on: 13-January-04, 15:38:23 »

I am having a few issues with BIOS on my KT8.  

First of all I cant get the SATA drive to work on my just sits there and lags the computer to the pace of a 286.  

Secondly:  During states "Bios not detected"..which is impossilbe because I can go into my bios. explain that one.

Third:  I want to optimise my system for gaming.  Any suggestions on what I should tweak to make the system a God system instead of the worm system that I have now.

here is what i have

AMD 3200+
1 gig memory
200GB 8mb cach 7200 ( I have the SATA drive but not plugged in because of above)
ATI 9800xt

Please for the love of noobs help me

bios not installed is said by the promise controller for some reason. just use the via sata controller and disable the promise controller to speed up your boot time.

  • 1 you have to usually go in raid bios control plus f and create an array as well as load raid drivers on the c drive for promise raid to work

    2 relates to 1 as the promise raid detects no drive it loads no raid bios

    3 i will leave to some one has used the board

    Are u using VIA, if not do, faster than the promise, disable that in BIOS.

    Did u set up the VIA raid controllers during your system install? Get another identical disk and set up as Raid 0.

  • I have been using the Promise Controller with a single SATA Drive.  I have the Via SATA and raid disabled in BIOS.  Check out this thread where I tried to expain all about how I set my system upon SATA.  It appears that a lot of people have problems with the Promise controller, but it's worked fine for me so far.

    Which IDE# is it connected to ? I had so much trouble with IDE#1 I dont use it anymore. Try IDE#3 (Orange connector). The mobo manual is not clear on this.
