Question about Abit KV-80 Motherboard

1 Answer

HDD both IDE or SATA 1 are not recognized

I am having a problem with the HDD being recognized and a brand new KV-80
. HDD#1(brand new Western Digital) connected to IDE and was working fine. Installed WinXP Home w/SP3. Customer took it home and then called me to tell me that when they booted it up, they received the error disk not found. They brought it back and they were right and wrong. I got it to boot but then while playing a card game the system shut down. When I try to reboot it, I recieve disk not found. BIOS does not show a HDD

Things I've done.

Replaced PSU (no change)
Put the HDD#1 as a slave on another computer and it was recognized.
Connected a SATA HDD and it is not recognized.

Any and All help will be appreciated.

    The suggestion of replacing the HDD produced the same results. I have following the other suggestion and then the last resort of replacing the HDD with a new HDD. The results are the same. DISK BOOT FAILURE, IINSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. The BIOS is not recognizing the HDD either. I have re-set the CMOS, re-seated the Memory, re-seated the Battery.

    Any other ideas or is this a Motherboard Problem and I need to replace it?

Unplugg the disk from motherboard and reboot your computer
Shut off the computer, connect the drive again and start up again.

If the problem continue, set the drive on your bios manually.

If after that the problem continue replace the disk.

Dear i am using ms-7142 v-1 motherboard. now i,m using ide 80 gb hdd.now i want to connect 160 gb sata hdd.its not showing bios also.hdd is working fine.i reinstalled os.and installed sata raid driver


first thing I would try is seeing if the sata drive is recognised on another motherboard if at all possible ,in order to eliminate the motherboard as the issue.If it is recognised on a different motherboard it is more than likeley a bad cable or a bad board .

I got a new SATA 500gb HDD but the motherboard wont detect it.


Access to your Bios Setup & configure the Bios settings.

Features Setup Page : This page sets up some parameters for peripheral devices connected to the system.

CMOS SETUP UTILITY - Copyright (C) 1985-2003, American Megatrends, Inc.
Features Setup
OnBoard Floppy Controller : Enabled
Serial Port1 Address 3F8/IRQ4 : Enabled
OnBoard IR Port : Disabled
Parallel Port Address : 378
Parrllel Port Mode : ECP
ECP Mode DMA Chnnel : DMA3
Parallel Port IRQ : IRQ7
OnBoard PCI IDE Controller : Both
OnBoard SATA-IDE
: Enabled *(Make sure This is enabled)
Audio Device : Enabled
Modem Device : Auto
Ethernet Device : Enabled

If you have got a SATA III HDD, ie if it is a Western Digital Sata III you need to configure the jumpers to work with your older Sata interface port.(Only Sata 1 & 2 ports on your Mainboard Socket 478). As for Seagate Sata III HDD, the configuration is automatic.

If your 500GD HDD is not detected, try updating the BIOS!
A word of caution "Updating the Bios is not for the Novice" Do it at your own risk. Failure in updating the Bios may render your Mainboard useless.

Hope it helps.

Gigabyte 945 gzm s2 doesn`t recognize HDD Western Digital 320 GB


You might need to change your bios settings from ide to sata. Have you already checked the bios settings? If everything is in order you might have a bad board. What have you tried so far?

Sata hdd not detected


Yes, go into the bios and make sure that SATA is turned on. Sometimes with motherboards that have two ide controllers the SATA is turned off by default. Also another thing to check is whether the motherboard is SATA I or SATA II. If it is SATA I then change the jumper on the hard drive to peg back to SATA I. Your new hard drive is SATA II and the motherboard may not support it.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

K8V-MX motherboard+HDD size limit


yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

SATA II HDD instaling on ASUS P5LD2


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
