I have a secondhand Intel motherboard DQ965GF that I am trying to install it has a 3g CPU and 2 g RAM with a serial DVD drive and an 80g hard drive.
If I try to boot install Windows 7 I get “can not read from CD code 5”
When I try to boot install XP I get a copy of all the first lot of files then it says that there is no hard drive and wants to press F3…
I can boot other CD’s such as Hiren’s boot disk or UBCD, but can not get past that. I installed XP on the drive on another machine hoping it would boot and repair but I just get the loop of restarting half way through booting. [too different]
When I boot I get as a post:-
“Intel ® matrix storage manager option ROM V126.96.36.1992 1CH8R WRAID5
Copyright © 2003-2006 Intel Corp. All rights reserved.
For about 2 minutes, then :-
Serial ATA AHC1 BIOS version UPSD SRC 09-13-2006
Copyright © 2003 – 2006 Intel Corporation.
This version supports only hard drive and CDROM drives.
Then a list of ports with Port 02….Hard disk ST380811AS
C drive controlled by the RAID BIOS
I can get into the BIOS and have tried playing and setting default etc but nothing seems to help.
I have run out of ideas and need some help please.
