Windows 7 Pro PC, old Asus A8V Delux OEM mortherboard, PC had a lot of boot issues (slow boot up, errors).
Promise FastTrak 378 BIOS v1.00.0.37
I upgraded BIOS to latest version from Asus web site. (1018_002) The upgrade was successfull, with default option set to clear CMOS, so during uprade CMOS settings was cleared to default. Uprade was successfull, but in spite of that, during boot still shown the same old Promise FastTrak 378 BIOS v1.00.0.37 and boot process is slow, in particular, when scan drives:
==================================================== FastTrak 378 BIOs version 1.00.0.37 2003 Promise Technology, Inc Scanning IDE drives............................
then something like "No drive attached to FastTrak controller, the BIOS is not installed.." then windows logo appears, starting Windows. How to fix that issues?
