i'm running on a win xp system, as we speak, i'm trying one last resort and thats disassembling everything and fixing them back again, then a format to reinstall win xp plus clearing the cmos.
i have not tried switching raid or ahci as i left the bios default for onboard sata type as "native IDE"
not too sure if i should play around with the onboard sata as i only have 1 hdd and 1 dvd drive.
Sorry but could you explain abit more on the MBR? Would that imply an issue on the mainboard or hdd?
My last resort would be to send the mainboard back to the manufacturers
