you should not update the bios...the issue is the hard disk is on sata ...and you need a raid driver installed to detect the hdd...so ...either get into BIOS and under advanced features..look the place where the drives are detected..and select the hdd and look for a feature called AHCI ..and disable it ..and leave sata like ide..and save with f10 and restart ...after that the hdd will be seen .. another way is to make a floppy disk with the raid driver on it (the one from the mothermoard drivers disk ) ..and when it ask you to press f6 for 3rd party software ...press it ..and insert the floppy ...it will pick up the raid driver and will go like a charm .. if you do not have a floppy ..install a second cd drive ..and use a cd ..and after pressing f6 for 3rd party ..browse and point to the raid driver on the mobo driver cd ..
Your model K8MM-V motherboard does not have a SATA controller only IDE disk controllers and therefore it cannot detect a SATA hard drive.
To install a SATA hard drive on this motherboard you need to purchase a PCI SATA disk controller and install it on the PCI expansion slot and then attach the SATA hard disk to this SATA controller.
You can download the driver, (VIA 8237 SATA/RAID driver) from PC Chips but I doupt it will help.
If your bios did no see the 250GB drive than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be fixed. http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=305&DetailName=Driver&MenuID=1&LanID=0
Running the SATA/RAID driver will most likely not help the bios see your drive.
Buying a PCI serial SATA controller card may allow your SATA drive run but it will run at the PCI bus speed. A decent controll card may cost as much as a new board that will run your current devices.
Gracias por la ayuda
No estoy configurando los dos discos duros apartes ni haciendo raid a los dos juntos.
El D.D. de 80 gb IDE ya esta parcicionado y formateado (40 c/u, FAT32), tiene windows xp sp3. Uso teclado PS2.
En el D.D. 250 gb serial ata quiero particionarlo en cuatro partes e instalar windows vista, las otras tres particiones para datos.
Voy a hacer esto: Desconecto el D.D. 80 gb IDE y dejo solo instalado el D.D. serial ata de 250 gb para partionarlo y formatearlo con windows vista; primero sin desactivar la función de raid en la bios y luego desactivandola; que opina.
first check your bios & see what raid chips are enabled,usually there's 2. Your main raid is on the first 4 sata connectors, the other chipset probably controlls the remaining sata ports. So if there's an option to disable one raid chip,disable one,just not the one that you're using. I don't know what your bios screen looks like,so this is just a general view based on my experences with various boards,mainly asus.
