  1. Hi!

    My brother just called me trying to start up is new hardware and I
    couldn't figure it out.

    He have connected a HD to sata3 port, in bios he can see the drive
    listed and he sets ita s pri boot.
    When he restarts mobo reports no disks found.
    He have tried different HDs with same result.
    Any advice??

    If he is trying to install an operating system to a new drive
    on a new system, he needs to make the CD/DVD drive the default
    boot device and have the OS installation disc in it before

  3. I recently installed a p8p67le in my computer. I had a pig of a time trying to
    get that thing to boot off the old ide drive I had my OS on, in fact I had to
    remove all sata devices to get it to recognize the ide hdd as a possibility for
    booting off (and show it as such in the bios screen). After reattaching the
    sata drives it will now boot of the ide drive --- BUT:

    half the time the turkey does not even post when I try to turn it on from cold.
    This happened a few times during system build, but I thought at the time it was
    due to my fiddling with the hardware and the problems with the drives I tried
    to attach (hell, I even ended up replacing a perfectly good ide optical drive
    because I thought maybe it was interfering with the post/boot process due to
    some bios feebleness) but the problem has cropped up again after the computer
    has been operating for a few weeks now. Takes 3-10 attempts of hitting the
    power on button before it will finally post. Most of the time the lights come
    on, drives spin up, nothing happens, lights go off again. Takes a wee time out,
    then the same again without me even touching it. Eventually it gives up. So
    I've been running it 24/7 so long as we don't have a power outage or I'm going
    away for a couple of days.

    Anyone else had problems of this nature? I am seriously starting to think about
    trying to get a refund and going to a different brand mobo. I bought a new
    antec psu to go with it, I doubt that that is at fault, and the on-board
    battery should be good really?
