Install sata drives on abit av8 motherboard (vista home)

I have decided to upgrade hard drive and dvd rom to sata. i have set bios but no drives are detected. tried a total reinstall using ide rom but still no hard drive. once vista is installed on ide drive sata dvdrom is working but when i boot with sata hard drive attatched aswell there is only ide hard drive. Q. can this board boot from a sata drive/ can it handle a 250gb drive/would i be better buying another board.

    no neither sata drives are present in bios and "sata raid rom is set to enabled" this is the only reference to sata in the bios

    yes it does scan and it reports dvdrom as non raid device but still doesn't see hdd, i have tried swapping all connections with rom and still same results, rom works perfectly fine until i connect hdd.

Right click on my computer, click on manage. Then on Disk Management. See if the drive shows up . If it does you can format it by right clicking and select format.

    In BIOS, do you see the SATA drive. Is this option turned on?

  • JDTec
    JDTec Sep 28, 2008

    Do you see the unit scan for the SATA drives on boot up? It should since the option is enabled in the Bios.



    Move the seial cable to a different connector, see if it's the connection.

    I know that SATA drives do not need jumpers for drive selection, but just for grins, check the CD-Rom and see if it has a jumper. It may be conflicting.



    Is the SATA HD partitioned?

    HD may be bad... after all you have done, that may be the reason.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

I have a abit 1c7g motherboard intel 3.2ghz processor twin western digital raptors sata raid 0 config ... 1 sony dru 710a on ide 1 (slave) trying to install plextor 880sa dvd burner having conflict with...


Suggest you connect the plextor to the SATA port 3 and set it's jumper to Master. All SATA drives are seen as Master drives. (Check the serial number on your WD SATA drive "Primary".
Enter the bios menu. Within page 3-7 section 3-3 Advanced bios features. Check, 1st, 2nd and third boot devices.
Floppy disk drive as, 1st boot device. 2nd boot device, "Primary WD SATA port 1". 3rd boot device, CD-ROM drive SATA port 2, Plextor 880sa drive". Save and exit the bios. If you no longer have you're manual you can download it from the link provided below;
http://ftp.abit.com.tw/pub/download/fae/ic7-g_eng_v101.pdf
Check page 3-13. See OnChip serial ATA Mode. As noted, the RAID option is available when the item "OnChip serial ATA" is set as [Enhanced Mode].

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;

Good luck!

I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.
