Install sata disk


From what I was able to find it looks like the board is set for IDE Interface connections for the hard drives. But you can make it accept SATA Drives by adapters that plug into the Power Supply cables that go into the hard drive.

I'll show some links below that will show you the adapters you will need.

The link below shows the Cable that would plug into one of the power supply cables and go into the SATA Drive to give it SATA Interface.

The link below shows you the cable you need that will supply the Power to the Sata Drive. It too plugs into one of the cables that come out of the Power Supply and goes into the Sata Drive.

How to install sata harddisk


With Serial ATA technology quickly replaince IDE/ATA as the new standard in hard disks, more and more computer users will need to know how to install SATA hard drives. The process of installing a SATA hard drive is similar to installing an IDE hard drive, except a bit simpler. Follow the directions in this article to learn how to install a new SATA hard drive.

1.Detemine whether or not your hard drive supports SATA. SATA technology was not introduced into the market until after 2002, so any consumer PC before that will not support a SATA hard drive. To find out whether or not a SATA hard drive can be installed into your motherboard, you can review the manual that came with your computer, or you can contact your computer's manufacturer. If you have already purchased a SATA hard drive, but have your motherboard does not support SATA technology, you will not be able to use your new hard disk.

2.Power down your computer and remove any peripherals or connections. Ground yourself either by wearing an anti-static wrist strap, or by touching a piece of unpainted metal. Remove your computer's case.

3.Locate your hard drive bay. Your hard drive bay should be located beneath your CD/DVD drive.

4.Locate the SATA data cables on your motherboard. Review the image to the left to get an idea of how your SATA slots may look (not all motherboards look the same). The small, red connections on the bottom-left of the motherboard are your SATA connections.


5.Take your SATA data cables (the red, smaller cable pictured left) and plug the one end into the motherboard. Insert the data cable into the lowest numbered slot (i.e. 0, 1).

6.Next, you will want to locate your computer's power cable. Some computers will already have a SATA-compatible power cable available, but others may not. If your computer does not have a SATA-compatible power cable, you will need to buy an adapter. As in the picture above, it will have one white end and one black end. Plug the white end of the adapter into the white end of the power cable in your computer. It should look identical to the one in the picture.

7.Connect the data and power cables to the back of your hard drive. The larger cable goes in the larger slot, whereas the smaller cable goes in the smaller slot. If they do not fit at first, simply turn them around and try again.

8.Slide your hard drive into the drive bay. You will want to make sure that the part of your hard drive with the connections on the back is facing outwards. Then, taking a screwdriver, line up the holes in the bay with the holes in your hard drive and screw the SATA hard disk into place.

9.Power on the computer. If you have installed two SATA drives, unlike with IDE, you should not have to designate them as master or slave (both will be independent drives). If your computer is not reading your new hard drive, power down the computer and check all connections, making sure they are secure.

WD1600bevs drive not seen by windows. Disk cloning software saw drive but thought it was a 2 TB drive.


Are you trying to install a new hard drive for new storage space or are you trying to move a hard drive with files on it that you intend to keep?

New drive with no files:
Right click my computer and select manage, choose "disk management" in the left pane, see if there is a drive listed with "unallocated space", if so, partition the drive, format it, and windows will assign it a drive letter.

Drive with files to keep:
Upon starting your computer, enter the BIOS or "setup" (usually by pressing f2, tab, escape, or some other key...but it should tell you what key to press), make sure the drive is detected in the system bios (make sure the SATA port that the drive is plugged into is turned ON) . Make sure the drive is plugged into power as well as data. Try a known good SATA cable.

I have a dell optiplex and the hard drive has been removed how do i get new hard driveto run tried to install windowsxp disk failed on restart would not find hard drive HELP


Did you replace the old hard drive with a new one?
Check the connections on the drive itself. When you plugged the new one in, there should have been two cables you plugged into it. 1 small one that goes to the motherboard (called the SATA cable), and one wider one which comes right out of the power supply. If either of these is not plugged into the hard drive, you would get a message that says "could not find drive".

Check your connections and try again. If they're ok, then write back with as much detail as you can provide.

Good luck!

I have a 320GB external usb and it is coming on but not being recignized by the computers. Blue light comes on and goes off, it maks noise as if it is running. BUT my computers detect new hardware but says...


The problem is with the controller board inside the SimpleTech drive. The solution is to remove the 2.5" form factor SATA drive from the case and install it into a new case. I have had 2 SimpleTech drives (both Pininfarina style) fail on me and in both cases it was the controller board and NOT the hard drive inside.

To remove the drive you have to remove the label on the bottom that says "Do not remove or you will void your warranty. Under that label you will see two phillips head screws. Remove them and the case can then be pulled apart. The controller board is screwed onto the bottom of the hard drive. Remove the screws and slide the board carefully off of the SATA connection and power ports and now you have a bare drive.

Go and by a 2.5" SATA form factor hard drive external case from some PC store or from eBay. I got mine on eBay for $10.00 including shipping. Install the drive in the new case plug it in and away you go. Make sure that you buy one that DOES NOT NEED AN EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY.

It is almost NEVER the hard drive itself that fails it is almost always the controller board. Make sure that you open the case and check that your hard drive is really a SATA drive before ordering the case. If it happens to be PATA (IDE) then make sure you order an external case for that type of drive. They are NOT the same and you HAVE to get the external case that mates with your hard drive.

Good Luck,

John

Hi, your Windows XP install CD doesn't have SATA drivers for the hard drive included, so it's not able to address your hard drive. You can't disable SATA in the BIOS to make it work since your hard drive is still SATA. You'll need to get a 3.5" floppy disk and drive if your laptop doesn't have one. They make external 3.5" USB floppy drives that will work.

1. download the SATA drivers for your laptop (iastor.sys and inf)
2. copy the drivers to your floppy disk (about 6-7 files)
3. plug the floppy drive into your laptop
4. boot to the Windows XP CD
5. as soon as the installation starts, it asks you to "Press F6 to specify RAID or controller drivers" - Press F6 now
6. When setup asks for it, point it to the floppy drive
7. Installation will continue and find your SATA hard drive

Ta-da! Rock on with your bad self.

Its because of two main factors. You must include the sata drivers in the install when starting by pressing F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen.

And you must go into the motherboard bios on boot and change the sata mode to IDE.

Additionally there may be a jumper on the hard drive that will allow you to select sata I or sata 2. If you cannot get it to work, you may be forced to set that jumper to Sata I mode..

Hard Drive


Hi I use Maxtor HD's and IBM Deskstars also, one of my pc's has 4 500 gb SATA drives [not in raid mode] and have had some problems also.
If you are using 2 drives then one should be set as master and one as slave. Same thing goes for cd/dvd roms, master and slave, and use 80 wire ribon cables. If you are using just one drive and the settings in your bios, and master or slave and what drive boots up the machine.
if using only 1 drive set it to master [in SATA it does not matter you can leave them all as masters, and only if the cd.dvd's are SATA also, if not they have to be set up as master & slave, set the bios to boot from cd drive 1st 2nd is your HD and last is if you still use them a floppy. On boot with the OS CD in the drive boot the pc and it will start the instalation of windows, delete any partitions, format the drive [NTFS] NOT FAT OR FAT32, and you should be able to do a fresh instal. As with 2nd hand drives as they were used on another pc they have hidden files left on the drive [unless the person that gave it to you has prepared the drive to do a proper instal if not windows gives you the option to delete, create and format the drive, to be ready to continue to instal windows.

Computer will not load windows


The message 'Diskette drive 0 seek failure.' is saying that there is any error trying to read 'drive 0'. As you can see from the list, drive 0 is 'ST3250820AS . 3 . ANG'. That is your hard drive that stores all of your information. Your other drive that's coming up is 'drive 1' or 'SATA 1' and that is your DVD/CD-RW. So basically your hard drive can't be read and therefore the PC can't be started. If there is data that you need on the PC I would advise contacting either a local PC shop to try and get your data recovered and put onto a new hard drive if they find that the drive is faulty. If you don't have any data on there that is essential, try reinstalling the operating system by starting up the PC with your recovery disk or operating system disk and following the directions. Make sure you read the instructions properly to insure that you install properly.
