Here's the location of where the hard drive should be connected too.

You want to change to AHCI mode before installing the OS.

the HD is in the SATAIII port (marvell controller), and i set the bios to read sata as ahci - i thought i had to do this before installing the OS

i only have 1 stick in the board (2gb in slot A1)

Not sure if we are talking about the same ports, SATAIII is not the same as the bottom two, check my post above to be sure its the same location. There are only two ports.

yeah, we are talking about the same ports.. the grey ones.. i may be confused on the terminology.. i thought SATAIII was SATA 6gb/s maybe not, either way the hard drive is in the right ports, when i first started the optical drive was also in a 6gb/s port, i have since moved it to one of the blue sata ports (#4)

Diskpart Clean commands don't look for errors, only write zeros.

Please read back over thread to catch up with all of the troubleshooting steps that have piled up, as the work has to be done to get to the fix. A memtest86 for 5-6 passes or overnight should have already been done.

You need to run both chkdsk and the maker's diag/repair CD scan.

Yes you should be able to write the ISO to flash stick using XP. I also use UltraISO trial version, load ISO, select Write Image on Bootable tab, use Format button first, Write.

In almost every unresolved install case, we see steps skipped or explained away. You've simply got to do the work to get to the fix.
True, but I thought writiing zeros across the whole drive would remove any potential bad sectors or errors?

I dont' think so. Someone else may know for sure. Formatting is supposed to quarantine bad sectors, but the combination of chkdsk and maker's CD scan are the sure way I know of to diagnose and even repair the HD, should be done on any problem install, and best are done anytime there's a reinstall to head off problems later.

Likewise the memtest86 CD scan for 5-6 passes or overnight for stress test should be done after you clear up the mobo ports issues with the expert help you're getting on that.

Looks like a plan. That Marvell controller might need the BIOS update for your OD to function correctly, could explain the read issues you're having with DVD. Problem is you need an OS to do the BIOS update safely.

A way to workaround that is to try install with USB flash stick which uses a different controller. I use Ultra ISO trial version to simply load in ISO, select Write ISO on Bootable tab, use Format button, then Write. It's easier than the tutorial version and works every time. Best to boot it from one-time BIOS Boot Menu key, prob under HD's.

Get your ports issues resolved first, even if you need to post it up in Hardware forum. Eldinv can help you sort it further, Doc should be around. Those are the experts I was referring to. It is not my specialty.
