qiaohan April 3, 2011 at 12:18:03 Specs: Windows XP, AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual 5400
Cannot boot from SATA drives. BIOS sees them but neither XP or Windows 7 disks will boot. I reflashed BIOS anyway and loaded fail safe settings but no success. I can boot to an old IDE drive no problem but My Computer cannot see the other drives or my SATA DVD drive. It can see my USB thumb drive. Southbridge problem? MB worked fine for 2 years and Isuddenly got bombarded with about a dozen messages - I don't remember what they were but they looked pretty fatal. I shut down and could not reboot. MB is a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-82HP. A chipset is hardwired to the MB so I just can't replace it can I? Time to toss the MB?
