After installing a reformatted sata (WD3200SJ) from old twin identical PC the computer won't boot windows, it goes through the POST but freezes upon the windows splash screen.
I have checked all the bios settings of the Neo P965a nd double checked boot order of drives but there is no settings that will enable a normal start up.
When connect thrugh USB there is no problem but that is o course not what I want.
Despite there should be nothing more simpler then installing an additional sata I am puzzled.
Anyone with good suggestion?
It appears that not all ICH8 sata connection are idential at al!!!!
When I plugged the Sata with OS not in the next slot number after the Sata DVD-rewriter but in the adjacent bank I coul boot up and find the Sate in the BIOS indicated as Master.
Now I have the Sata with OS in the original sata slot 1 back again and the second Sata in the bank with higher slot number and in BIOS I will see it as the fourth master.
This peculiarity is fortunately nowhere to find in the P965 user guide.....
