I have a ASUS A8R-MVP Mobo with 2 x gigs ram, 500gb SATA HD, and some other things. Pretty much I got mobo to load bios by switching out the Power Supply. Before I didn't even have BIOS. After I switched out the PS I loaded up windows XP and got to the log-in and they asked for activation.
I shut off the computer and a week later when I started it up it won't load the OS. It goes to a screen and says no bootable device found, although it lists the SATA HD (That's in SATA Slot #1) in the IDE 3RD MASTER slot. I have been fooling around with it for ever and I'm not sure whats up.
I have the orignal BIOS, and I tried to upgrade today but no luck. Cannot read .ROM File or something.
Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
My NEXT MOBO Won't be a ASUS that's for sure. This POS was giving to me so I can't go wrong I suppose.
