Default [HELP] 500GB SATA II and ASUS A8V-VM mobo not working

Hi, I bought this hard disk
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/124228...specifications

to work on this motherboard

http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Product...roductID=14250

but the motherboard doesn't really detect. When i go into the bios and look up hard drives is pops up as

RAID:WDC WD5000AAK

i cannot boot from the device. I cannot install windows on it.

BUT when i tried it on another pc (ASUS P5S800-VM) which is an older board i believe, it works fine!

What can i do??

Thankyou

It sounds like it's looking for a RAID setup that isn't there. Try disabling any RAID options in the bios and see if that does anything.

Once in Bios with that mobo, go to on board configuaration, then to Raid Settings, then disable. Should work.

Ah, I see. When you install Windows XP, Press F6 when prompted. You will need to create a floppy disk containing the RAID drivers found on CD. It often pops up when the Autoplay goes. Do that on another computer, while the other loads files.

This is weird. It has SATA drivers, but it's only for Linux.

See for yourself. support.asus.com
