Hi, you'll need one of these: http://www.csncables.com/Cables-to-Go-1018X-GY1352.html (Data cable).
& one of these:
http://www.mwave.com/mwave/Skusearch_v2.asp?scriteria=BA00307 (Power cable IDE 4-pin to SATA drive). Unless your current power supply has a SATA power connector.
Open your manual to the top of page 1-24. SATA data cables connect one way only. It does not take much to break the ( L ) shape end of either the data cable or the SATA power cable.
(All SATA drives are seen a master drives). When in your bios choose the correct drive under Boot > Boot order.
Need more info, just ask.

Good luck!
Mike

I have K8V-MX motherboard. I am planning to buy a 1TB SATA HDD Will this support ? Thanks! Madhusudan


Your model KV8-MX motherboard does not have a SATA controller.
To install a 1Tb SATA hard drive you need to install a PCI SATA controller and then connect the SATA hard drive to this controller board.

You could also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to "limit to 1.5gb/s".

K8V-MX motherboard+HDD size limit


yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard with 250GB SATA HDD and 250GB IDE HDD Problem


Hi LP,
I’ am very familiar with ASUS motherboards. I am thinking you have posted two questions or more referring to the,
ASUS K8V-MX board. When you sign into you're FixYa account you than need to click on you're profile. Within you're profiles are the questions you have posted. Click that question to add or see the expert's answer. If you need another question (about the same item) re-post within that same question. You can even copy the link to an older post & past that link into you're next question. (Than I can read you're last question & my responce).
LP you have me all mixed up. I'll answer the question you have posted above. In the future please provide you're old post so I understand better.

There is nothing wrong with IDE 250GB drive or the SATA drive.
The problem you are haveing is setting the correct settings.

The ASUS K8V-MX can support two serial ATA SATA drives. The SATA drive's can only run at 1.0 version. 1.5GB transfer speed & not SATA II, the 3.0GB speed.

How to setup the SATA drive?
Please disconnect any other drives (IDE) & a second SATA drive that may be connected to the system. Except the CDROM drive.
Using you're manual the SATA drive should be connected to SATA1 port. Page 1-24 in you're manual.
Put you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & boot the PC. You will see, Press any key to boot from CD... (press any key on your keyboard). Windows will start to install. Durring installation of windows the system will restart. You will again see, Press any key to boot from CD... (DO Nothing)!
Just allow windows to conintue on its own. Windows will continue to install it's self. This will happed once again, & again do nothing. Windows will finish installing it's self.
After windows has finished, load the ASUS CD into you're CD-ROM drive & install it's driver software. Restart the PC.
You must register windows. Do so.
Than update windows through windows update service. (This will take some time to complete). (Do not install service pack 3).
If you have an IDE drive 250GB in size & you installed windows on it. You must erase the drive or it will conflict with you're new installation on the SATA drive. To do this, look on the IDE drive & you will find a large white sticker. Printed on there is instructions of how to set the drive pin. Set the drive up as a slave drive. (This is only temporary).
Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Connect the 250 IDE drive's power cable & data cable. Plug in the power cord to the PC & turn on the PC. Windows will load. Right click once on the start button & slide up to & left click on Explorer.
Find the 250 IDE drive, it should be drive letter D or E. Right click the proper drive letter & format the drive.
( Do Not format, Local_Drive C:\ ). Once the format is complete, power down the PC by clicking on the start button & click turn off the computer. Once off, unplug the power cord. Change the pin on the 250GB IDE drive to Master with a slave. Take the 40GB drive & change it's pin so the 40GB drive is a slave.
Connect the 250GB drive to the end of the IDE data cable & connect the 40GB drive to the next connector of the same IDE data cable. Re-check all power cables & data cables for good connections before closing the case. Plug the power cord in & power up the PC. Everything should run just fine.
Setting the pin for you're IDE drive's can be very confusing. Click on the link below. This will give you an idea of how to set you're pin for a master drive, master with a slave drive. If you post the name ST****** of you're two drives I can post the correct pin locations from Seagate's web site.
