Question about Mercury P4VM800M7 Motherboard
Motherboard Mercury P4vm800m7 v1.0, Intel P4 2.66 Processor, Removed my IDE HDD and Connect new Seagate SATA 160GB Hard Disk. When booting a pc hdd not detected in post operation also in bios. i am not able to install my XP OS. Pls give your valuable sugession.
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.
