You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!

SHUT DOWN COMPUTER AND CLEAR CMOS BY RESETTING JUMPER ON MOTHERBOARD AND THEN RETURN JUMPER TO NORMAL POSITION OR USE RESET BUTTON. UNPLUG ALL HDD SATA CONNECTORS FROM HDD. BOOT COMPUTER TO BIOS. MAKE SURE ENABLE ALL SATA IS ENABLED, PRESS F10 AND EXIT.YOU WANT TO SHUT DOWN AGAIN. NOW REATTACH SATA HDD AND CONNECTORS AND BOOT TO BIOS AGAIN. NOW HIT F10 AND LET COMPUTER RESTART AND LOAD INTO THE OS. LOGON AND CHECK DEVICE MANAGER..SHOULD BE THERE. IF NOT CHECK MOTHER BOARD WEB SITE FOR BIOS UPDATE. IF BIOS UPDATE DOESN'T DO THE TRICK, SHUT DOWN AND DISCONNECT THE IDE DRIVE, UNLESS IT CONTAINS YOUR OS. TRY BOOTING TO BIOS AND CHANGE ORDER OF 1ST BOOT OPTIONS, HIT F10 AND EXIT AND ALLOW COMPUTER TO BOOT TO OS, THEN LOGON, GO TO DEVICE MANAGER AND REMOVE IDE AND RESTART, ONLY IF THIS HDD DOES NOT CONTAIN OS. YOU SHOULD BE FINE AFTER THIS, OR INSTALL YOUR OS ON THE SATA HDD.
cek our bios setup
1. is that addon card set to SATA or RAID?, SAT the set should be!
2. Broken? (maybe the cable not connect, power cable is bad or something else like, try to hear the sound working harddisk, teh sound because the HD's motor is working)
3. this time, the HD is very big enough, but the software not followed yet, so maybe your BIOS need to be upgrade, i dont know. try to flash it
at last, the HD only display detect when u boot the CPU. at BIOS is not display detect.
that my experience
sory if not helping
Does your internal speaker beeps or stops telling you there is no hd detection? Try to put another hd. If you are using Windows reinstall it. Does the red light blinks CHECK out the power chord to hd and all power connections from psu
You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.
Keep in mind that all serial ATA SATA hard disk drives are seen in the main bios menu as a Primary Master drive. When you load the bios you should see the SATA 320GB drive in the main menu, Standard CMOS Features. If you do not than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired. Only a motherboard replacement will fix this issue. You can go to MSI's web site below & allow MSI to check you're system for the latest bios upgrade. Follow their online instructions & update you're bios file but this will not fix you're onboard SATA controller.
