Your Motherboard is SATA 1.0 - If you select a newer 2.0 drive you will have to place the 1.5gb jumper on the drive to be visible to the bios and operate at 1.5 instead of 3.0 gbs - http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=ms-7043&table=download
this is the link to the manual and drivers for your mobo
The other option is to purchase an updated SATA 2.0 controller card and then you can support all the new size HD's - here is the link to one such card for $29.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2254079&CatId=1455 - if you are not ready to update the mobo, then this is a great solutions

How can i install my 500 gb sata hard disk, in bios i din't found any sata settings...plz help


There are no SATA settings in BIOS for most systems. As long as your motherboard has SATA connectors, the BIOS should recognize that the drive is installed and then you use Windows to format it for use.
You should see the drive listed in the drive section of the BIOS after you have connected both cables for it (power and motherboard).

I tried to install SATA Hard Disc to MSI PT8 Neo-V Mother Board. But Even AMIBios Setup, it could not seen and when I try to install the windows, it tells no hard drive found.


cek our bios setup
1. is that addon card set to SATA or RAID?, SAT the set should be!
2. Broken? (maybe the cable not connect, power cable is bad or something else like, try to hear the sound working harddisk, teh sound because the HD's motor is working)
3. this time, the HD is very big enough, but the software not followed yet, so maybe your BIOS need to be upgrade, i dont know. try to flash it

at last, the HD only display detect when u boot the CPU. at BIOS is not display detect.
that my experience
sory if not helping

Sata hard instalation


Do you have an IDE hard drive fitted as well.
If so remove it as I have found out that unless setup properly IDE and SATA do not mix
