Hi Grumpy
It sounds like your mainboard is not set up to allow for a SATA boot drive.
Have a look in your bios and ensure the boot order is set to the SATA drive first
Then, make sure the SATA drive is formatted and has an operating system installed.
Alternatively, boot the system from a boot disk ( your XP or Vista disk will allow this) and check to see if the board can see the drive and can read the drive if it is already formatted.
If not, format it and install the O/S onto it and make sure you answer YES to the question " do you wish to boot from this drive?"
Both my systems use SATA drives and I only had a boot fault because the "pre-formatted drive" I bought was not formatted and formatting under windows during O/S installation solved this issue..

You need to install the SATA drivers that belog to your specific motherboard.
When you are installing Windows thru your Windows CD, there is a moment at teh beginning of the process that you will be asked to press F6 if you want to install 3rd party drivers.
That is your call.
Once the SATA drivers are installed, you will be able to continue with your Windows installation.

Don't forget to rate this answer if it helps.

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Sata drive not recognized at boot up


I HAVE UPLOADED THE MANUAL HERE, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WAIT THEN GET INTO YOUR BIOS BY DOING A HARD BOOT AND HITTING THE DELETE BUTTON ON START-UP.IF THE MOTHERBOARD SUPPORTS SATA , TO WHICH I FOUND NO CONFIRMATION , YOU CAN CHANGE IT BY GOING INTO THE ADVANCED SETUP PAGE AND CHANGE THE FIRST BOOT DEVICE TO SATA RATHER THAN IDE. YOU WILL ALSO WANT TO CHECK THE PCI SETTINGS AS WELL FOR YOUR CONTRLOLLER CARD ....GOOD LUCK

Boot failure asus a7v 133 motherboard installed a pci sata raid


Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.

Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.

First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
If you do not have a floppy disk drive than make the first boot device your DVD writer.
Save the bios & exit the bios. You should not receive "boot disk error message anymore".

Run into a problem, post here.
Good luck whistler1410!

Hi m_k_bishop,
You must connect the CD-RW drive to the Secondary IDE connector on your board.
It can not be connected to the Primary IDE port.
(All SATA drives are seen as master drives in the bios).
With that in mind there shouldn't be any data cable connected to the Primary IDE slot.
When you first load the Bios menu screen you should see your CD-RW listed & you should see your SATA drive listed. Go to the title, " BOOT " in your bios.
(If your system has a floppy disk drive connected your Boot menu should read as follows);

First boot device [Floppy Disk]
Second boot device [Your CD-RW drive]
Third boot device [Your SATA drive as shown from the main menu]
No need for a fourth device.

Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart.

(At boot up re-enter your bios).
Next change the [RAID Mode] to SATA or Enabled anything but RAID.
Once completed save & exit the bios. If everything is connected correctly & you made the changes above your system should see your SATA drive & windows should install.
(Load the windows CD into your CD-RW drive).
The Asus manual lacks the proper information needed for you to make the correct setting changes in the bios.

Good luck m_k_bishop!

The bios is not installed


Go to BIOS, under Advanced > PCI Configuration. Disable Onboard ATA device if you're not using RAID. Also, make sure under Boot Menu that Other boot device do not show SCSI/Onboard ATA.

Hope that helps.

Sata Harddisk Not detected in Post operation


Hi vijjis,
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.
