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: http://www.seagate.com/images/support/en/us/cuda_sata_block.gif
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.

You could also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to "limit to 1.5gb/s".

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.

Can't setup OS in SATA HDD in Intel d945gccr


Hi.

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.


Regards.

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.

Bios not detecting 320gb sata drive


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
