This whole event has inspired me to start looking at building a new beast from the motherboard up Went back into the bios and repopulated with the same format. Obviously, the poor coding of the later bioses on the A8V is most probably the cause as many threads have highlighted.

Along with this problem, I also have the issue with my OS reading said drives, as I gave up on having both raid options, and set them up for raid0 performance and tried to install OS, I installed drivers as said from floppy, but XP still says cannot install it says it cannot find harddrive. Is there a special method I have to go about it? Oct 1, 8.

I just thought I would clear up some confusion before I began the OS install process. If so, you have to reformat it to get it to work properly. Aside from the need for speed. Thank you so much for your time!
