I have bought a 500 GB SATA HDD and the drive is notrecognised in bios at all.This seems to be the same problem that you have already faced. The motherboard that I have is "K8V-MX".Whatcould be the possible problem and how can I fix it?
Same problem with the ASUS K8V-MX motherboard with a "Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 3.5" 500GB
Hard Drive ST3500418AS" not being recognised. Had to force the disk to use 1.5 GB/s mode,
but connecting the jumpers as shown here:
Once I did that the system would recognise the disk on the BIOS screen,
and the operating system (Linux in my case) could see the disk.
Hi, I have the same problem, my Hdd 500 GB WD is not reconognize by bios. So, I thought, it's time to upgrade the bios,and I did this. I have this problem still, even with new bios. Additionaly, I must sey than I have "K8VX". Meyby the last v of bios from end of 2005 is not submitet to operate with 0,5 TB Hdd. Anyones knows that?
I did have the same problem. But it was because I was using a hard drive that was set up for another motherboard and BIOS. When I booted up again from my XP disc and installed a new version of Windows XP, everything was fine. I did have a slight problem finding the correct BIOS setting for my 2x S-ATA DVD drives and my old 2x P-ATA hard drives. But by resetting the my combination of drives in BIOS "Storage Configuration" to "ATA/IDE Configuration ----Enhanced"; and the"" Enhanced Mode Support On -------[S-ATA], I managed to get my computer to work OK..
I don't really understand why, but who cares, it works.

XP will not install until you go into the BIOS and find the menu page (probably by moving across the top level of tabs)
where the SATA hard drives are configured. On that page you will see the
ports and at least one, maybe all, will be Enabled. Close to that will
be the port mode, usually setable individually for each port. Choices
may include IDE (or PATA) Emulation, SATA, AHCI. Set your port
to IDE emulation. Now look at the bottom for the
key to Save and Exit - often the F10 key, press that key and select OK, the computer will restart and you should now be able to install Windows XP without any problems.
To get into the BIOS you have to press the Del or Esc key when you first turn the computer on.
Double check the jumper configuration, You might also want to check the cables and ports incase that's the problem because a properly jumpered SATA drive shouldn't have any compatibility issues. Also check if *********** board supports the SATA ? Let me know if this works..thanks. Mike
Dear Fried its possible.. Go the Boot Menu at your BIOS ( For go the BIOS Press DEL at startup your system) there you may se Hard Disk Priority Option. There you can change Hard disk Priority... you may need setup your sata as first one..
Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?
you need to go in bios and set sata to legacy for no F6 driver. if its on native it need a driver from floppy on xp cd boot . if its not detected in windowws as a slave. u need to run diskmgmt.msc and fin the unalocated drive and create part then format it ntfs
Check the SATA/RAID controller setting.
It could have been set to [Disabled]
Refer to your user?s manual for a detailed description on how to enable the onboard SATA/RAID controller by adjusting the jumper or BIOS settings.
