Background: A power outage fried my ASUS M3A32-MVP. It had three HDDs connected: Two Seagate 500 GB drives in a RAID 0, the SB600 RAID controller, primary Windows installation An 80 GB IDE drive which held a Fedora 10 installation. To replace the dead board, I bought a Gigabyte MA78GPM-DS2H (mATX, AMD 780G+SB700). I went for a cheap replacement, as I plan to get rid of this AMD hardware soon. Setting its SATA mode to "RAID", the board was able to recognize the RAID 0 logical drive. To recover data from the RAID 0 (I suck at backups), I reinstalled Fedora 10 on the IDE drive, used MDRAID and NTFS-3G to mount the RAID 0 volume. I was able to recover all my data. The problem is that when I reboot the machine, and try to boot with the Windows XP installation CD, the system just blanks out. The keyboard is responsive (I can ctrl+alt+del), but the screen shows nothing. The CD drive stops blinking, and the HDD LED on the case stays red. I tried setting the SATA controller to IDE mode and starting with the Windows CD, no luck. Have you had a similar experience? what did you do? I'm using the 780G IGP, with 128 MB Sideport + 128 MB Shared memory, if that makes a difference.
