Question about ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard
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?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
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.

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.

Do you have an IEDE hard drive installed if so remove it and try your SATA drive
I have a SATA drive and it will not recognise my IEDE drive
