sata drive will not boot when vga is ????

Specs: winxp, p4
Ok this is a strange one. I have a system with an old geforce 7 series agp. The card is dieing so I wanted to change it for another. I had a fx5xxx agp laying around and when I try to boot its like there is no sata drive. So I put the old one back and now it boots. Then I tried a 9 series this time a epci and I get the same damn thing? This is an asuse 04v8000 board. I read somewhere that too many boot managers could do that so I disabled the network and raid boot menus but that didnt help.

Can anyone explain this to me?

Are you sure it's not a P4V800D-X?

well I restored bios defaults and the geforce 7 series agp is still ok the fx5xxx series agg still does not allow the sata to boot up, but now the epci works.

I'm very confused by all of this... but I have a working solutions.
