    Oh man, i am getting crazy with this ...

    Yesterday it seems to be working all right again and now, when
    connected the SATA again and disconnected the harddrive with the ol
    system XP on it, i am now getting with the SATA the same troubles!
    :mad: :mad:

    [b:89426fbebd]DoubleClick on My Computer results in a keep o
    searchin' of Explorer with no success[/b:89426fbebd]
    So no volumes are visible. It's the same as with the IDE, as describe
    before. Defragmentation in Computer Management and doing Copy, Move o
    files can be done in a workaround and i also can open files stored o
    Desktop or one of the partitions, with MS Word, Excel or whatever, s
    this indicates, that the drives are connected properly! Restor
    Points didn't help either. Last night i got it working again with th
    IDE -drives,but now the same problems occure again with the SATA

    [b:89426fbebd]Ethernet driver message[/b:89426fbebd
    There also came a message for installing an ethernet driver (?). I ha
    resolved this by getting XP pointing to my CDROM with the ASUS CD i
    it. However, i still have a major problem now. At most all my files
    could move to the partitions of the SATA in which i had devided it, s
    the IDE-disk's are almost empty now and can be formatted if i want to

    [b:89426fbebd]I have entered the BIOS and tried some changings wit
    the Boot Order[/b:89426fbebd
    With the latest BIOS-update 1009 there is a possibility to set it t
    SATA/SCSI or SCSI/SATA. I left it like before on SATA/SCSI. Firs
    Boot Device can be set to different, like HDD-0, CDROM, FLOPPY and s
    on. Maybe you have a suggestion how it should work properly :(

    [b:89426fbebd]Why are these stupid things occure?[/b:89426fbebd
    It seems to be working perfect: Disconnect the old system hard driv
    and let the other hard drives in the sytem, then connect te SATA, s
    this oSATA and the other " old" two hard drives were visible whic
    gave me the possibility to use the " old" drives with only files an
    drivers on it, for installing XP-drivers on the SATA. This worke
    fine. However, because i couldn't get al the files in one time to th
    SATA, i had to do this (disconnecting-reconnecting) all over again.
    think here is something going wrong and XP is loosing control of it
    .. :crybaby:

    [b:89426fbebd]Question is now, how can i get this all workin
    I still hope one of you at this forum has a splendid idea for getin
    this solved. Because i have very little time it making me sick, onl
    of thinking to do the XP-install all over again :eek:
