Re: not detecting ide???
Just FYI, I think the problems you're having are due to some information stored within the CMOS Setup that you need to erase. Once you erase that data, the CMOS should be able to detect the changes you've made (installing a new HDD, for example), and that should get everything working again.
Before you do that, you'll need to see a copy of the motherboard manual, to help guide you through the changes you need to make. You can download the manual for that FIC motherboard (in .PDF format) directly through this link:
Just right-click that link, and choose whatever "Save" option your browser offers; do NOT choose to "OPEN" the file. Save it to your Desktop, or someplace where you can find it easily.
When the download has finished (~2.4MB file size), open the .ZIP file. You'll see the manual in .PDF format; open the manual (you'll need a .PDF viewer, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, or the Foxit Reader, to open it), and scroll down to page 46, which will show you the "PnP/PCI Configurations" options panel. The FIRST option at the top of the page is "Reset Configuration Data"; set that to ENABLED. Then, press the F10 key, and exit the CMOS Setup, but remember to SAVE YOUR SETTINGS on exit... The system will then reboot; when it does, the internal tables within the CMOS will be erased, and the hardware changes you've made to the hardware should be detected during the POST.
SO, in order to do this correctly, boot the system, and open the CMOS Setup program again (press the DEL key during POST). Find the "PnP/PCI Configurations" panel, then follow the steps exactly as I've explained them, and you should be able to boot the system all the way into Windows. The "Reset Configuration Data" option will automatically be DISABLED again on reboot, which will store the new settings (for your newly added hardware) into the CMOS, and then the system shouldn't hang during bootup anymore, because the listing in the CMOS will match the information the system reads from the HDD during bootup.
Good luck; post any questions you have BEFORE you begin, so we can guide you through this... Otherwise, be sure to let us know how this turns out...
