Hi rafiisak,
There is no need to turn off the SATA controller if your only going to run IDE's. To set your IDE drive to function as primary master you'll need to have the IDE drive listed in the Boot order sequance.

However if you wish to turn off the onboard serial ATA SATA controller anyway open your manual to
section: 2.4 Advanced menu page 2-17 & open Onboard Devices Configuration than open SouthBridge Configuration page 2-24. Serial ATA Controller, set to [Disable]

Have any more troubles post it here.

Good luck!
Mike

SOURCE: SATA ports not enabled.

Boot your pc and go into your BIOS. Select ATA/IDE configuration. Select advanced and then drive configuration. Yours should be set to Enhanced ( or Native ). Hit F10 to save and exit or use the top menu. See if this helps. If this did't work you might have a cable that needs a floppy power cable plugged into the hard drive along with others. If this fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If it didn't just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.

How to change sata to ata in bios


If you want to install Windows XP or configure a RAID array, you may need to change the SATA type in BIOS. here I will introduce some method of SATA settings in BIOS. SATA HDD(hard disk) has been more porpular because of the hight transferring speed and simple installation. If you want to Install a Windows XP in SATA hard disk. we offen need a floppy disk to save the additional driver of SATA/RAID. but the floppy isn't too easy to find. So we can do another method, modify the SATA type to compatible IDE or ATA mode, etc.
Notes: If your computer has installed some operating systems. Changing SATA types may corrupt your systems or need to be repaired again. But when can I change the SATA type?
1. You are prepairing install a new operating systems, for commonly Windows XP. If Windows 7/Vista will be installed. you need nothing changed in BIOS unless the setting has been modified.
2. Or you want to install a RAID.
I will introduce how to install Windows XP at SATA HDD(hard disk) in the coming chapters, here we need to know how to change the SATA type in BIOS. At first we need to access BIOS, Here is my desktop BIOS, we can find the BIOS is from AWARD software.
201003290718324672.jpgIn my BIOS, the harddisk settings are in the line of integrated peripherals, different BIOS or different OEM menufactures may have different promise. you can try the Advanced BIOS features setting or Integrated peripherals, or system configuration, etc.
Locale to Integrated Peripherals and press enter, you may find the SATA configuration.
201004010308121905.jpgthe above screenshot is the SATA configuration position. There are two items about SATA controller, Onchip SATA controller and Onchip SATA Type, Notes: There may be one or more configurations about SATA, we only need to change the SATA Type. you should not close the SATA controller if you don't know what's will be happened.
Navagete to the Onchip SATA Type and press ENTER, we can find these selections: Native IDE, AHCI, RAID. If you want to install Windows XP, you may need to change to Native IDE(some called ATA) mode, when you finished installation, you can refresh your SATA drivers in Windows XP and change the SATA type to AHCI mode in BIOS again.
If you want to configure a raid array. set to RAID similarity. When finished settings, you should press enter to accept it, and save to CMOS before restart your computer. In my BIOS, I need to exit to the BIOS main menu at first and save it.
when the new status has been saved, you can press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer, some OEM PCs may need to click the EXIT or Save to CMOS and Exit, the computer will be restart automatically.
Another example screenshot is my DELL notebook BIOS. DELL BIOS is not the same as the desktop BIOS, we can find the SATA operation behind the System Configuration. there are only three selections (Disabled, ATA, AHCI). If you want to install Windows XP, here need to be changed as ATA mode.

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

IS HD161HJ COMPATABLE WITH MS-6741


Be sure that SATA is enabled in your BIOS settings. Sometimes if the computer ships with an IDE drive, the company that builds them will disable SATA in the BIOS. Also, while you are in your BIOS, if you decide to use just the SATA drive, you need to disable your IDE and set the bios up to boot the computer from your new drive on the SATA connector.

Hi m_k_bishop,
You must connect the CD-RW drive to the Secondary IDE connector on your board.
It can not be connected to the Primary IDE port.
(All SATA drives are seen as master drives in the bios).
With that in mind there shouldn't be any data cable connected to the Primary IDE slot.
When you first load the Bios menu screen you should see your CD-RW listed & you should see your SATA drive listed. Go to the title, " BOOT " in your bios.
(If your system has a floppy disk drive connected your Boot menu should read as follows);

First boot device [Floppy Disk]
Second boot device [Your CD-RW drive]
Third boot device [Your SATA drive as shown from the main menu]
No need for a fourth device.

Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart.

(At boot up re-enter your bios).
Next change the [RAID Mode] to SATA or Enabled anything but RAID.
Once completed save & exit the bios. If everything is connected correctly & you made the changes above your system should see your SATA drive & windows should install.
(Load the windows CD into your CD-RW drive).
The Asus manual lacks the proper information needed for you to make the correct setting changes in the bios.

Good luck m_k_bishop!
Post back if still have trouble... You shouldn't!

No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3
