I wasn't shure where to post tihs but here it goes.
I built a HTPC
2GB DDR2 800
The problem i'm having is i have trouble installing vista it hangs & wont finish installing.Also when i had vista on it & tried to play a BD disk is says put in disk when it's already in the drive or when i play a dvd it hangs altogether.
The system works fine with a IDE DVD drive.I also tried a pioneer DVD Sata drive & a LG BD Burner all have the same issue.
I had a old Sata to usb adaptor from a old external hdd i conected the drives to that & i could use them in vista fine.
I updated Mobo's Firmware but no luck i have 2 of these Mobos they both have the same problem.
maybe someone has an idea.
Ps i tried AHCI mode
