Just installed new Motherboard (MSI PT8 Neo-V) and Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 120Gb HDD.
Installed XP Pro, which takes 6-8 mins to boot up, and runs very slow.
During boot up I get the following error message :-

Scan Devices, please wait...
press <tab> key into user window
Serial_Ch0 master: no device
Serial_Ch1 master: no device

It then pauses, and boots up slowly.
I have HDD on its own in IDE1 and IDE2 I have CD-Rom as Master and DVD-RW as Second. CD-Rom not showing though.

Motherboard has 2 Serial ATA connecters which are not being used.

I am totally baffled - any help greatly appreciated!

P4 3.0 GHz 800mhz
512Mb DDR
Maxtor 120Gb HDD
Radeon 7800 graphics
Audigy ZS Platinum Pro Sound Card
MSI PT8 Neo-V (MS-7043 v1.0) Motherboard
Windows XP Professional

Methinks you need to install/reinstall the motherboard drivers.
CH0/1 errors are referring to channel 0 and 1 which are the primary IDE devices .

Dave, How do I go about that.
I haven't installed any motherboard drivers yet!

Assuming you can actually access the CD, you should have had a CD supplied with the MB. Put that in and (if it doesn't autorun) check the autorun.inf and run the setup that is specified in there. It should ask you if it can install loads of stuff. Do it all.
