[qanda]This thread is about the Plextor PX-760A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi all.
My system :
Asus Maximus Formula II
4 GB RAM
SATA WD 320 GB RAID 1 C:
SATA WD 64 GB D: ( 50GB) & E: (590 GB)
NVIDIA 9600 GT
LG SATA Blu Ray GGC -H20L
LIAN LI Case
OCZ 700 w PS

I installed Windows XP on the D: first, then Windows Vista Enterprise on the C:.
Everything works fine. All drivers, etc.

When I attempt to add my Plextor PX-760A, which is the onlt IDE device with my system, upon boot, Windows XP is an option, and when selected, the monitor screen remains black & does not boot. I can boot into Vista, but only after a long wait. If I disconnect the PX-760A, the system flies, & no problems booting into XP or Vista.
Any suggestions to install the PX-760A?
Thanks in advance.

That board has a Marvell SATA/IDE controller that is pretty new; maybe there is an option in the BIOS to set it to legacy IDE mode?
