Hi Guys, Im in need of some desperate help here. The scenario: I have just built a PC with the following components: Epia M10000 embedded platform motherboard 1Tb Samsumg Hard Drive(SATA) 2 Channel SATA controller in the single PCI slot on the DVD Burner drive connecting to IDE port. 256MB RAM Installed the motherboard and all the components in there correct places. plugged the SATA data cable from the motherboard to the port on the controller. All the installation is correct. There is no OS on the system as its a new build. I booted up the system first time yesterday after I installed it all It goes past the logo screen for the motherboard, it then prompts me to choose boot option, so i choose the 4th option which is "boot according to BIOS settings". The BIOS is set to boot from CD ROM first. It then goes to the BIOS screen for the controller displaying: Initio Sata Controller BIOS version 1*** Channel 0: Samsung HDD 953 GB Channel 1: Not found PnP Bios Installed. It get to here and thats it it does nothing after. Im trying to install Windows XP on here It doesn't even boot from the CD ROM drive, I can here the CD spin in the drive but however it gets to the above screen and does nothing from there. Can anyone help me in what to do next. Im assuming that I need to install the drivers for the controller card however I cannot do that as I have tried booting from controller card CD that came with it it then still goes back to the above screen and does nothing. PLease help!!! Many Thanks.
