Jag ska själv köpa ett liknande system som dig.. AMD XP 2400+, Asus A7N8X Deluxe/GD, ATI Radeon 9500 Pro.
Men jag har byggt ihop datorer med Asus A7N8X Deluxe, med Western Digital hårdiskar tidigare utan att ha några problem alls..
Det finns en FAQ på www.nforcershq.com och i den står det så här:
"Q. My system posts and boots extremely slow, hard drive detection seems to take a long time, and/or windows doesn’t boot all the time.
A. Again not entirely A7N8X related but does apply. Generally speaking 1 of 3 things could be happening. If you have any Western Digital hard drives connected to your system you should set their jumpers at either the standalone setting (for single drives on a channel or drives using the SATA controller), or cable select setting (for drives that are not the only device on the IDE channel). This is an issue with Western Digital drives. Setting their jumpers at conventional master/slave settings causes problems and should not be used. There is usually a jumper setting diagram on the label on the topside of the drive. If by chance your drive doesn’t have this diagram then you can get the correct jumper positions from Western Digital. "
