Hi coonster,
Actually you can do more. If you haven't updated windows please do so! Once windows SP2 has been fully updated & running correctly use windows disk management utility.
To load windows utility click the start button & type diskmgmt.msc in the run windows, click ok.
Windows may have added another drive letter to your drive because of the 137GB block. Use disk management to delete any added drive letter. Window disk management can add the additional space to your C: drive. If windows still gives you a hard time I suggest you download partition magic 8.0 or 8.1 from this site. (Its free). Install partition magic & use it to regain all your of the drives data space.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

My abit fatality aa8xe mobo will not recognize/find my WD 150gb Raptor when installing winxppro! I need the .inf files to slipstream into the install disks for that mobo. please help!


did you try to verify that the WD HDD is the culprit. try external HD enclosure, or much simpler try the WD on other PC transfer the inf to usb.

Motherboard is not recognizing my hard drive during boot process


It's probably the jumper settings on the hard drive. You can try cable select but I usually prefer just setting it as a master. Let me know if that works.

Abit th7raid motherboard-160GB HD cannot recognize-needs flashing-out of my depth!


Hi coonster,

Abit TH7 Raid driver.

Windows inability to see all of your hard disk drive is not a motherboard issue.
It’s a windows issue. ( I suggest you use the hard disk drive software from the manufacture’s web site). Most allow you to download software that allows you to create a bootable floppy disk. Boot to this disk & setup the drive in a dos like window.
Once completed you can now boot to the windows CD. Do not allow windows to format
the drive.
That is what the manufactures disk will do for you. Install windows & please update it fully. Windows should see all of the 160GB after updating.
If you feel you need to update the bios, feel free to do so.
Follow Abit’s instructions on how to update the bios from this link;
http://fae.abit.com.tw/eng/download/bios/index_old.htm#486

If you have never downloaded a bios file or drivers from this site it can be a bit confusing. You’ll need to high-light the entire link below, than right click once to open the pop-up window. Than left click copy. Open internet explorer. Right click once in the address window & left click past. Than press the enter key on your keyboard. The site has a timer on the left side of the page. You’ll have to wait for it to reach zero.
Than a yellow bar will open across the top of the page that says, (To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options...). Right click once on the yellow bar & left click download file. Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder " Drivers". Download the file named " infinst_enu.zip" into the driver folder. Us any uncompressing program & uncompress the file keeping the files within the driver folder. The action of uncompressing the *.zip file will create another folder named " Disk1".

http://www.nodevice.com/driver/download.html

To download the Abit TH7 Raid bios is done like the instructions above. For this bios file you’ll need to do the same with the link below;
Abit TH7 Raid bios file name " th736.exe ".

http://www.updrivers.com/getbios/Motherboard/Abit/TH7-Raid-BIOS/6187.html

Please retype verification code: "enter code listed on site".
Press enter.
Again create a folder on your desktop & name it Abit bios.

You will not find any drivers, bios or manuals directly from Abit. They no longer support this motherboard.

Good luck!
