Question

i do part time freelance computer upgrades and repair, and im having a problem involving a pair of 120g samsung sata hard drives - the controller loads them and i can do a fresh install of windows xp, but when i try to reboot and start the OS, it sits at a blank screen after POST. Yes, i have the correct drivers that loaded from a disk during the install.

The onboard SATA for the MB is another story entirely, and one i eventually gave up on in favor of a pci controller card - in the hardware management tool, it said that there were not enough resources to run the onboard controller, and it never properly recognized the drives, saying their capacity was something around 257 gb and their serial numbers had hearts and other symbols replacing some numbers.

Koutech I/O Flex Dual SATA host controller
VIA PT800 MB
Celeron 1.8ghz
768mb RAM

Did you "disable" the onboard sata controller ?????

You may even try the Advanced IDE Config in the bios and change to "PATA" only seeing as the PCI sata controller has its own bios / not sure / check these and please post back
