IDE boot on K8N Neo4 Platinum???

Q: IDE boot on K8N Neo4 Platinum???

Hi

I have been looking for a new mobo and I have found the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum. This looks to be quite a good board but when looking in the description I found that it did not state that it supported boot from the IDE drives.

http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.php?UID=637 - here it says 'supports boot from LAN, USB and SATA.'

Does this mean that I will have to use a new SATA boot disk instead of sticking with my old IDE???

Thanks

Phil

Preferred Solution: IDE boot on K8N Neo4 Platinum???

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone! I was looking at mobos' and i came across the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D and the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum mobos. The lanparty mobo seemed more attractive, where as it seems to be more of a "gamers" board. I have never built with these two brands, MSI and DFI, so i was woundering which mobo would be the best for gamers. The lanparty mobo has 2 PCI-express slots, not SLI, and it cost about 10 bucks more. I dont really need the extra pci-e slot, expecially if its not sli. I also have herd many talking about the lanparty board being difficult to install and it being very picky about the memory. As for the MSI board, most of everyone has said it to be a breeze to install. I would rather get the MSI board, which is less expensive, and it being very easly to build with, rather than getting the lanparty board, having it to be more expensive and difficult to install, but yet is basicly the same as the MSI board. Perhaps some help from people who have these boards would be helpfull. Any help will be welcomed. Thanks

I am after a nForce4 Ultra chipset board and have got it down to one of the two boards:
Asus A8N-E
or
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum

I very much like the MSI board, but have read VERY comflicting reviews from sites and customers. Some say it is a great all round board with heaps of features and so forth, others comment how it is unreliable/unstable/buggy (although this stuff usually gets fixed with a BIOS update, right?)

The Asus board would suit me fine and has all good reviews, so it is an easy choice.

The reason why I rather the MSI is that it has many more features than the Asus and would allow me to try out over clocking, have heaps more storage and various other things, where as the Asus is limited in OC ability and has a limited number of storage devices supported.

I can get the Asus for $145AUD or the MSI for $195AUD so price isn't a very important difference, but still $50...

I would whole heartedly jump for the MSI, but I am just very worried after reading some reviews (from newegg.com mainly). I have also been told that MSI is typically a cheaper brand not doing as higher quality parts as Asus for example.

Apart from this, the only comment which makes me a little aprehensive is
One of the problems we faced with the nForce3 chipset was selecting DDR400 speed from the BIOS with four memory modules- it just didn’t work. Unfortunately, that still remains an issue and we’re pretty sure that this is a chipset and not a motherboard related issue as we have also rec... Read more

My questio/problem is this:
My DVD/CD-ROM (LG some thing another) is installed on the IDE1 port as primary slave (jumpered) and the WD Raptor is jumpered Master and connected to the SATA1 port on the mobo. In my BIOS the Raptor is listed as THIRD Master and the DVD/CD ROM is listed as SECOND slave. Not sure why that is or if I need to correct that?
System runs nice, XP loads quick etc. Do I need to change that?

System specs.
above mobo and HDD, Athlon64 3500, 1GB OSZ platinum DDR (2X512MB), GeForce 6600GT (I know, need 7800 GT soon).

Any help, suggestions greatly apprieciated.
PS, I up graded the on-board LAN drivers and nVidiaGF4 drives via the MSI live update application. That was slick and made HUGE difference in system speed and stability. This system was just built by me on Saturday morning , i.e brand spanking new and already had to upgrade chipset drivers to get it to work like a real computer.

MSI K8N NEO Platinum- RAM problem- doesnt boot!!

Chaps;

I have just bought MSI K8N NEO Platinum... With a single RAM in slot 1; it seems to be working OK, however whenever I tried to install two RAMS in slots 1&2 -or- 1&3, it does not even boot post!

Now: RAMS are identical (2 256 MB kingston ddr400 RAMS) so it should not be a RAM incompatibility. Either of these RAMS- work fine. i.e. Machine runs successfully with a single RAM.

I tried updating BIOS- but there is not a significant change. i.e. with dual RAM configuration; before updating the BIOS the motherboard gave a beep-beep sound and did not boot at all. After updating BIOS, it did some sort of boot, but froze again... (did not boot post)

What do you think the problem might be?

Cheers

use memtest to test each stick thoroughly alone. could be a board problem or bad bios settings.

I bought all my hardware last year from newegg and successfully put together a functional PC.

A year later (yesterday) I bought a case and tried to swap everything from the old case into the new one.

However, the PC turns on, all fans are powered on, but it doesn't get past the "Platinum" screen (the screen before going into Windows). I can't access BIOS or go into POST mode either.

I've tried putting in my Windows XP disc, but without going into BIOS, I can't choose to boot from the CD ROM drive.

If i take out the Hard drive cable, it gets passed the screen, but then it says something like "failed to load system disk" or something.

EDIT:
---
I've gotten into CMOS now (by removing the CD-ROM and HD cables from the mobo), and was able to set the boot priority to CD-ROM 1st. I saved & exited, then powered off the machine, and rehooked a brand new HD (jumpers set correctly to single/master), and rehooked the CD-ROM drive with my Windows XP disc. I've run into the same problem of it just sitting on the "Platinum" splash screen again.

I've also tried:
- Using a new cable for the HD to go into the mobo
- Using a new cable for the CD-ROM to go into the mobo
- Unhooking all my PCI cards from the slots
- Removing all RAM sticks but one (they were 4/4 before, and i never even touched them while i was switching cases, I just left them in the mobo).

OK, firstly take out your RAM and try with only one of the two(if applicable). Sometimes different modules can cause problems. Try resetting CMOS as well.

And the second thought I have is to try a different GFX card. If that doesnt work try taking it out, blowing and giving it a really big blow and push when putting it back in.

Hope this helps

Hello ....
I am building anew PC. I have two SATA drives and an MSI K8N NEO4 Platinum mobo. Windows XP Home edition SP2 will NOT finish installing. It hangs as it is trying to "save settings". The drives are Seagate ...
a 250Gig and an 80 gig. Both, are I believe, SATA II. I have them plugged into the high speed SATA ports on the mobo and the onboard controller shows enabled in the BIOS. But XP will not detect the drives either as regular SATA drives or even in a RAID configuration. At F6, I have tried loading the manufacturer's disks, but they do not appear to read. I don't think those drivers should even be needed, but the floppies spin but do not read.
The floppy drive is brand new so I guess the floppies could be bad but I also made my own floppies and they do not read either. I am at a loss.
The BIOS is V1.B which is the latest oner available.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks much .... Easydog
 

A:SATA and MSI K8N NEO4 Mobo

Ah yes, the good ol' nForce4 chipset

What do you mean when you say "the high speed SATA ports"? You will want to use the purple SATA ports for the system install, since they more closely work like an IDE channel. Also, is the 80GB drive is for the system install? If so and you aren't planning on RAID striping them, I would just try to install with the system drive plugged into the #1 purple sata connector (oddly, the 2nd one from the battery).

As for the floppy drive issues, I have had a high failure rate on floppies as of late, so I just keep trying a different one until one works. My complaint with the nForce4 chipset is that all the components it controls aren't recognized by Windows until it is completely installed and you run the main nVidia installer that installs all of the individual drivers. Then, your RAID & LAN and the rest start working. Also, at that point, you should be able to get the Silicon Image RAID stuff working correctly.

Hi

After designing a quiet system i have recently noticed that the northbridge fan on my MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard is getting increasing noisy.

I would like to swap it for a silent/quiet solution, i was thinking maybe the Zalman NB47J.

However due to its location this becomes very difficult as it is located right next to the PCI express graphics card, with only limited clearance.

What do you suggest? as i was considering trying to modify the zalman cooler or possible remove the exisiting fan and replace it with another, possibly larger fan mounted else where.

To replace it you will need to completely dismantle your pc as the screws or clips that hold it in place are usually only accessible from the back of the mobo.

Hi gurus! I thought I would humbly ask for some advice from the experts since I am having a bit of a time trying to get my mobo/card combo to work correctly. The system is a bit dated, I built it back in '05 and it has run pretty well since then. When I first got it up and running, everything, including the SLI, was working just fine.

Fast forward to a week ago when I get a wild hair up my *** and decide that the computer feels slow and it needs an OS reload anyway. I stick all my junk on my 500gb slave sata drive, disconnect it for safety's sake, and commence deleting partitions and formatting my primary drive. I reload windows, and everything is going smoothly until I realize that in order to get SLI working I need to flash the bios. Okay, no biggie. I go to MSI's website and they're flaunting the new 'live update' function as the most awesome thing since sliced bread. I notice it doesn't need a floppy disk in order to do its thing, and I don't have any lying around since I moved, so I'm like HELL YEAH. And I try to run it. BAD IDEA! My computer promptly takes a huge dump and bluescreens, then tells me 'keyboard error or no KB present'. Having run into this problem before, I reset the CMOS (and test all my connections on the mobo just in case) and restart.

I had to manually remove all the components of the MSI live update service in safe mode, as the uninstallation tool was corrupted and because everytime it tried... Read more

Hi Everyone

My husband was lent a DVD and he used it on one of my computers. Unfortunately this DVD is obviously a dodgy one and it has added something to my computer and altered settings on it. Now when I turn the computer on a screen comes up with graphics and PLATINUM written across it. Does anyone have any idea what this might be or how to remove it?

Hello all you new people!

So, here's the story. I was bad and overclocked my AMD Athlon 64x2 2.4 Ghz processor. It eventually went bad. Didn't have money to fix it for a while, and today I just purchased a 2.0 Ghz Athlon 64x2 for next to nothing.

Now, it posts in the mobo, and I can get into the bios, then it just...shuts off. I try turning it back on, fans come on, shuts off again almost immediately. Let it sit a while, then I can get into the bios for a minute or so before it shuts off again.

I finally figured out, that the MOBO is recognizing the processor at 3800+ (which is correct) but it shows a speed of 2.42 ghz instead of 2.0!!!

I have no idea what to do, but I'm not messing with it again until I get some answers

Hello guys! first time for me asking for computer solutions on a forum so please point out if i'm doing anything wrong.

Anyways i'm having some problems with my X-Fi Platinum card and can't for the life of me find out what's wrong.

The sound is working but it's reaaally low, Have to crank the speakers(Z-5500) halfway to have a normal volume but this results in alot of static sounds when no sound is playing which is really annoying.

And i have to use Stereo settings aswell cause if i use 5.1 i get the words most awful BOOM from the bass unit.

I have the latest drivers, windows 7 64bit and even tried downloading some windows 7 specific tools but nothing seems to work.

And also my microphone seems to have taken a beating about this since when i speak people tell me it sounds like i'm sitting on a airport runway with a Boeing 747 taking off right next to me.

Anyways if anyone would take some time out of their life and help me i would really appreciate it.

Thanks in Advance

A:X-Fi Platinum working really bad

Idolator, welcome to the forums.

One thing to check first,

Don't know how or why, but occasionally after installing the drivers, the individual speaker levels will be lower than the main volume.

Also are you connected to the speakers via digital or analogue?

For the mic have a poke around in the Windows settings. Make sure the mic boost is enabled, try different levels, and on the Advanced tab try a lower setting or two and see if that helps.

Go to control panel, and if you donwloaded all the software, there should be an Icon for "AudioHQ", click on this, then EAX Control Panel, and you should see Audio Effects at the top left, highlight "FX" and then just to the right highlight (no effects).

Hope this helps.

My windows automatic security updates was very adamant that I download some new antivirus software and when I clicked on their recommendations it came up with Antivirussoft platinum. After briefly looking over their site I went ahead and bought the software and downloaded it. However, the software program I downloaded seems fishy to me. For instance, I realized that it is full of typos and misspellings, which seemed awfully strange to me. I have only had it for a few days and have not had much time to inspect it further. I am wodnering if anyone knows about this program and whether or not I may have inadvertantly downloaded something useless or malicious.

Not much, I can still get new SB Live ! value for about $30 for the 5.1. So I would try to get about $30 if you can. Good luck !

This combination gives me the bsod and an error atikdmag.sys. I have the latest drivers. I have Vista 64 Home premium and 2 gb RAM
Any ideas?

A:MSI KN2 platinum sli and ati HD 4850

Welcome to the forums, pnrc5.

Where did you get those drivers? atikdmag.sys means that there is a problem with your driver.. Try googling that error and see what other people say about it. And, this is a question rather than something I know, but an nforce mobo with ATI GPU? Does that work together?:s ...

Hi Been using EZ for quite a while & no problems.........recently I've noticed when burning applications to disc it only appears to have burnt one (application eg windowwasher) even though a few shown during aplication ?

No problem with photo's, MP'3 as 'Data'

Just a little thing I guess, just wondered why ?
Perhaps 'am doing something different, but what was applied to photo's MP3 was usually applied to applications.

Appreciate any help

I just got the Dawn of War: platinum edition for Christmas. But when I put the DVD-ROM into the drive, it won't read the disk. I'm pretty sure that its not the DVD driver. And, the drive could read other cds/dvds , does anyone know whats wrong?

Anyone have comments on this software? I have used version 7 for a long time and love it, way better than Microsoft Windows explorer. Since I have vers 7 now, I can get it for only $ 29. That is a very reasonable price, but I don't want freezes or any other problems. I have VISTA home premium SP2.

Hey guys,

I have been noticing that my MSI P7N SLI PLATINUM take about 5-6 seconds to display the POST screen once you turned it on, plus it remains 3-4 seconds in the POST screen loading the hard drives. Plus once it loads Windows after several hours or even minutes, it freezes.
Is that normal to do, because my other computer is fast on the POST.

Thanks in advance
