I just built a new system with the following motherboard. I can't seem to get the bios to enable the drives. It sees them but shows them in brackets and it says that if they are in brackets that they are disabled. I can't boot from A or D either as they are all in brackets.
Any suggestions on settings? I can't seem to see anything to change that will cause the system to enable.

My system is running winxp pro, 2.6 celeron, 512 ram. I have a 60 gig hard drive, floppy drive and cd rom drive. I've tried configuring with just the floppy and hard drive and it doesn't work either. The drive settings are correct (master, slave etc.). In bios it shows the drives in propper boot sequence and yet when it shows drives it shows them in parenthesis. Then at the side column it says if they are shown in parenthesis that they are disabled. I select the drive in the drive area -- (it shows the drive and disabled as selections) .. so it should be enabled. Could this be a bad board?

I'm pulling my hair out .... Please help!!

I assume its a SATA drive and that you have installed the mobo drivers?

I can't install drivers from a drive it doesn't enable.. That's exactly my problem and why I am assuming that it's a bios problem. Would that make sense to you?

In the bios, advanced section, drive configuration, make sure that enhanced is enabled. Under the boot menu, make sure you have the correct drives selected as boot devices. Not just the priority, but which device. It is selectable for which hard drive, which cd or cd-rw etc.
