My mobo is not recognized by the ASUS update utility. Also the Intel Chipset Identification utility does not recognize the chipset. I believe these problems are what is the cause of my SATA drive issue. One of my SATA drives will freeze my XP system. I was told that I should install the drivers from my mobo, becuase this is what is causing the freezing. So any clues as to why the ASUS and Intel utilities are responding as such? I have already reinstalled my XP twice to no satifaction. I have also cleared the CMOS. Not getting any attention from ASUS.
