Question about ASUS P4P800S Motherboard

Added ide hd and can't boot from ata hd now!

Hey folks,
need a little help here...
got this system second hand and tried adding a hard drive to the primary ide slot and couldn't get it to boot. I went into the bios and it saw the ata and the ide hd drives but when you went to the boot sequence you couldn't choose the ata drive.

i also tried putting it on the secondary ide as a slave and had the same problem. tried that on ide1 as well.

does this mother board override the ata slot when you use the ide slot for a hard drive?

this should be a straight forward install but this is getting frustrating.

basic system
p4 3.0
1 gb ram
nvidia 128mb video
80 gb ata hard drive
dvd rom
cd burner
didn't check the bios version but assume original
windows xp pro 32bit
limited software

thanks for a light you might shine on my problem!

    hey voodoonofx,

    so will that tell the motherboard to boot the sata first?

    i did change to enhanced mode but i don't think i set the other...may have been my

    problem in that case.

    i will try that out and see what happens.

    thanks for your help and i'll let you know

    how it goes.

    thanks for your input.

    I don't think it's overriding the SATA on the board when you plug in an IDE drive. I've never seen a board do that. I would try resetting the bios to it's factory defaults, and just try plugging in teh IDE drive. That should get you to be able to boot from the IDE drive. Then add teh SATA drive once you know the IDE drive works.
    Comment back with the motherboard model number, and i'll see if I can help you more.

Hi Steffan, to answer your question! Yes, the bios does take away an IDE port when using both SATA & IDE hard disk drives. See the manual for ASUS P4P800S page 1-22 & page 1-23. In reality both drives are ATA. (Though I understood your question above). This board wants you to hook the two types of drives as shown on pg 1-23. Than go to page 2-14 to help you set the bios setting. Than see if you choose the serial ATA SATA drive in the boot configuration section.
See under, IDE Port Settings [Primary P-ATA+S-ATA]. (Set to this in bios).
Parallel = P-ATA = IDE drive.
Serial = S-ATA = SATA drive.
Need the manual? Click on this Asus link; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4P800S&SLanguage=en-us
You'll also need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/

If you still have trouble just let me know.
Good luck Steffan!

Ah, ok. According to the manual, on page 1-23...here's what you need to do.
added ide hd and can't boot from ata hd now! - afb8949.png
According to this page, you need to set onboard ide operate mode to "Enchanced Mode", and Enchanged mode support on to "Sata".

    By making these changes, it will allow you to have both SATA and IDE drives detected at the same time. After setting the settings, save and exit, then re-enter the bios. You're boot menu should now allow you to choose which drive to boot from.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?


You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

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.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!


May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.

Want to run both Raid 5 (4 drives) and a single SATA boot drive


Download the latest beta BIOS 1238. I had the same problem when adding a Samsung 1TB HDD to my RAID config. Updating to BIOS v1238 solved the Intel RAID Matrix "hanging" instantly.

You can't download it through the official Asus support page yet, but there's a topic in the Asus support forum with a link. You could also call Asus support and request the file, or just download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/186891601/P5B-Deluxe_1238.rar :)

Hard Drive Installation


Hi emceedrive, I gather you are using ATA/PATA IDE hard disk drives? Each hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. Listed there are pin settings to set the IDE to Master or slave & Master with a slave. (We want to leave you're drive with windows on it alone). Not changing its jumper or not adding a jumper for now. We are not hooking up you're second drive just yet either.
Oh, please you're not an idiot either.
Unplug the power cable from the PC & open you're case.
Please open you're ASUS P4P800 SE manual to section 2.2.3 Motherboard layout. We want to connect the data cable to SEC_IDE1 first because once PRI_IDE1 is connected you will not be able to connect SEC_IDE1's data cable up to the DVD drive bay.
So grab a data cable for you DVD drive. It may have three connectors on it. Plug the connector that is the furthest from the other 2 connectors on the cable into the motherboard slot named SEC_IDE2. The data cable only goes in one way. Run the remainder of the cable up to the DVD player but do not connect it to the player yet. It is ok to fold the data cable which will help in routing it upwards to the DVD bay. Than connect the data cable to you're primary master IDE drive. (The one with windows already installed on it). The data cable should look just like the DVD data cable. Again you want to connect the furthest connector on the data cable into the MB slot named PRI_IDE1.
For now it’s best not to install the drive into the drive bay. Stand it up next to your case or lay it down flat with a sheet of paper under it. Connect the power cable to the drive. Plug in the PC's power cord & power up the PC & start pressing the delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads. You should see the Primary Hard disk drive listed at the main menu. Now go to the title Boot in the bios. Open boot order. The boot order of the devices should be as follows.
Boot device 1. (Floppy Disk Drive)
Boot device 2. (DVD Disk Drive) [None shown it’s not connected to the system].
Boot device 3. (Model number of your Primary IDE Master HDD).
Once this is set, save the bios & exit. The system should auto restart & windows should load. Let windows finish loading. Than shut down windows normally.
Unplug the PC's power cord. Since you had to remove a DVD drive you'll need to set the remaining DVD player's jumper on the drive to a Master & connect the data cable & power cord to it. (You may have to remove the DVD to see where the Master pins are located. It will be marked on the DVD player near the pins).
Now take you're new drive, do not insert it into the drive bay. Look at you're Master drive's white label. Set the jumper on the master drive first. It should be set as a Master drive with a slave.
Connect a jumper for this.
Go to you're new drive. Again look at its white label. Set this drive's jumper as a Slave drive. The Master drive should be connected to the end of the data cable. The new slave drive should be connected to the next in line connector.
Once all data cables & power cables are connected plug in the PC's power cord & boot the system, again pressing the delete key every two seconds until the boot main menu loads. Now you should see the Primary IDE Master drive & you're new Primary IDE Slave drive listed. You should also see the DVD as the Secondary IDE Master. Go to the title "Boot" again. Set the boot order as mentioned above. Save & exit the bios. Windows should load as it did before. Once windows has finished loading open windows Explorer & see if you're new slave drive is listed.
Shut down the system & unplug the power cord. Unplug the slave drive & mount it into its drive bay. Take a black marker & mark the side of the drive as slave. Disconnect the Master drive & connect it into its drive bay. Reconnect the data cables & power cables. Check all connectors before closing the case up. Re-connect the PC's power cord & boot the system. Everything should be fine. If you have a problem getting the data cable connected to the slave drive because its closer to the DVD drive as opposed to the Primary IDE Master drive you can make the slave drive a Secondary IDE Master (Change its jumper setting according to the drive’s label for Master with a slave) & connect the DVD player as a Secondary IDE Slave. (Change its jumper to slave). Change the Primary IDE Master drive’s jumper as a Master with no slave, single drive. That all.

Good luck emceedrive!
Take your time. Any troubles please post here.
You should be fine though.

Power up problems


To enter setup (Refering to the bios/cmos), press the Delete key very two seconds untill the bios main menu loads. You need to go to the menu heading - Boot.
If you added another hard drive to you're system the IDE (hard drive) it's jumper settings may not be correctly set. If there are now two IDE drives both the primary master & secondary drive's jumpers must be set correctly. You will ned to look at the white sticker on the drive for the correct jumper settings. Many primary IDE drives pin jumper is set as a single master drive with out a secondayr drive attached in the system. When you add a second drive the pin jumper one the master drive will most likely need to be changed to master with a slave. The second drive will also need it's jumper set as a slave drive. Once this has been adjusted you need to enter the bios & make sure you're primary master drive is set in the boot order. Most PC's boot order is as follows.
1st Boot device, floppy drive. (If one is connected to the system).
2nd boot device, CD-ROM drive.
3rd boot device, master IDE drive.
Please use the help of you're manual to guide you for these settings.
AOpen MX46L web site. http://download.aopen.com.tw/Default.aspx
You must set the three drop down menu's to get you're board's drivers & manual. In the first menu choose motherboard, in the second menu choose MX46L & in the last menu choose manual. For drivers, the third menu choose drivers.

Still heave more questions? Just ask.
