if I connect the SATA 1 & IDE ATA hard disk /DVDROM,
the system able to detect my ATA hard disk during loading the JMicron BIOS, then process with loading Windows. However during loading Windows, the screen will turn to blue screen & restart immediately.
if I connect the SATA (not the slot 1) & IDE ATA hard disk /DVDROM,
the system unable to detect my IDE any hardware duing the 1st BIOS and the BIOS for the JMicron, but able to login to Windows. Once inside Windows, the system will auto detect my hardware & found has a IDE controller is using by JMircon RAID, request to install drive. (I can't do this, because no DVDROM!)
some days ago I bought the MSI 965 Neo and I have the same problem, that my IDE HardDisk cannot be detected by the Bios. I tried many settings but didn't succeed.
During booting I always get a bluescreen and the system restarts. No matter which boot options are selected (Debug, VGA, with confirmation, ...)
I couldn't find a suitable update on the MSI homepage, but maybe I searched the wrong pages.
thanx for the fast reply, but I don't really understand what you mean. Since my system doesn't boot I cannot use the disc.
How can I update the drivers (if this should be necessary) of my new board without an operating system?
Is there a special jumper- or Bios-setting to get this damn detection working?
Today I switched back to my old HW, to have access to the forum and see if there is a solution for my problem.
My Bios Version is 1.5 which is the latest official version from MSI.
There is only a DVD-Writer and a WD600AB (60GB) EIDE harddisk connected and both are working properly (otherwise this could not be written ). I can connect also a Floppy to my system if this might help to load drivers and updates.
meanwhile I know that the Bios of the MSI 965 Neo is not able to detect IDE devices, but the Raid controller does (if set to IDE mode)
I reinstalled XP and updated all drivers an now everything is working
I came across your post on how to get the IDE HDD to work on the msi965 neo-f mobo. However, I am not very sure of how you do it. There is a post from you saying that the RAID controller can detect the hdd? How can I go about doing it?
I really appreciate any help from anyone
the raid controller detects the IDE-HDD by itself so you don't have to do anything. The point is, that you won't see any entry in the BIOS, but you can see the message from the raid controller during the boot sequence (at least it was the case with my system). So don't bother about BIOS entries. The only problem is that you cannot connect more than 2 IDE devices with the controller (only one DVD-drive and one HDD or similar constellations)
I have one of these (POS) motherboards. I have 1 300GB SATA HDD, 1 80GB IDE DVD, 1 IDE HDD.
I wanted to have the IDE drive as my OS drive, and the SATA HDD as my DATA drive. After having some trouble doing so, I came here. I think I can do it now (will have to wait until tommorrow at work to try), but after reading about everyones troubles with IDE and this board, I have a few questions.
1) Is this possible?
2) Is this a bad idea, for performance and stability? I know SATA is faster than IDE, but I will be doing more I/O on my data drive, than the OS drive.
Hi every body
msi965 neo to work better with windows xp sp2 / vista
you should be enter to BIOS by delete
1- select Advanced BIOS Features
2-Full ScreenLogo Display
3-select Disabled not Enabled
then every thing work better
