    Thanks for the Information but now I have a new problem…I hooked up the CD-RW unit back the way it was (CD-RW PRI Master Socket) and moved the DVD from the Secondary Socket to the Primary Socket and made it a slave (I changed the DVD from a Master to a Slave being I added it to the Primary Socket) and now I have the CD-RW sharing the socket). I took two ATA hard drives and hooked them to the Secondary socket. Everything (CD-RW, DVD, Quantum ATA Hard Drive and the Seagate Ultra ATA hard drive show up in the BIOS but NOT in My Computer (Using Windows XP Prof.. The Quantum hard drive showed up in the hardware stack in windows. The Seagate I could not get Windows XP to boot and got the following error message (slash V=2 to DDO command line and reboot) so I disconnected it and was able to boot Windows. I think the problem with the Seagate was I had Windows 98se operating system on it even though the Seagate showed up in BIOS. I had the hard drives sit up as slave for the Quantum and Line select for the Seagate. I’m new at this so what can I do? Quick Note: The Ultra ATA Seagate has Windows 98se operating system installed on it and I thought I could have a selection to run ether XP or 98se or access the data on the Seagate and tranfer it to the XP hard drive then wipe the 98se operationg off the Seagate and use the Seagate (being its 80G) as a extra storage unit. Can this be done?

As long as there is an empty IDE port you can. You will probably have to go into the bios settings after you hook the other drives up & set the boot menu to boot from the SATA drive 1st.

    OK the drive with windows 98 on it is partitioned as a DOS drive. It will have to be partitioned as NTFS for windows xp to show it in my computer. You can do this with a program named Partition Magic which can be downloaded.

The BIOS does not detect or recognize the ATA / SATA hard drive Tips and tricks for troubleshooting a Serial ATA or ATA/IDE internal drive that is not detected in the BIOS.
There are six main reasons why a system BIOS will not detect the presence of an internal hard drive. Here is a list of them. They are not in any particular order, but you can follow these steps one by one to troubleshoot this problem:
  1. Drive not enabled in the BIOS
  2. Serial ATA drivers are not properly installed
  3. Faulty or unplugged data cable
  4. Drive is not spinning up
  5. Incorrect jumper settings on the drive
  6. Faulty hard drive
Note: Sections 3, 4, 5, and 6 pertain to PC or Mac systems. Sections 1 and 2 pertain only to PC systems.
For more detailed step-by-step troubleshooting on this topic, please see the Seagate Serial ATA troubleshooter "Drive Not Detected" section.
After verifying that your ATA or SATA port is set to Auto-Detect or is enabled, if you find that your disk drive is not being detected (auto-detected) by the system BIOS, try the following steps to try and isolate/troubleshoot the problem.
  1. this link can be useful.

    System setup is where the date and time are stored and where startup preferences like NumLock or Passwords are defined. In addition, many hardware settings are defined in System Setup.
    In particular, hard disk drives are often controlled here. At the simplest level, hard drives are numbered in Setup as Drive 0, Drive 1, etc or sometimes as Primary Master, Primary Slave. Which ever way these are named, they have a basic ON / OFF setting (sometimes AUTOMATIC or something similar). If your drive is not detected it may be because it is turned OFF in System Setup.
    In most cases, the boot drive is Drive 0 or Primary Master. When you add a second drive to the system, it may be need to be enabled by turning it ON in System Setup.

    Sample screen shot showing a Dell System Setup section for disk drives:
  2. 48-1s.jpg
  3. To be able to hit the F6 button, you must restart the Setup process, and watch the bottom of the screen after pressing Enter on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. There will be some moments of files being loaded, and then you should see a message appear that says "Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver". This message will only stay on the screen for a couple of seconds, so press F6 as soon as you see it appear.

  4. After this is done, you will see other messages appear, and it will act as though nothing is happening, but eventually a screen will appear that will allow you to install the drivers for the add-in SATA controller. The screen will look like the sample below:

    (Click to expand)
  5. After you press S, the driver install process will continue and the floppy diskettes will be needed. Further instructions will be furnished after the driver install process has ended.

    (Click to expand)
  6. Insert the floppy diskette containing the drivers for the add-in Serial ATA controller.
  7. Once the drivers are loaded, proceed with the normal Windows XP/2000 installation.

A few further notes on the driver diskette:
For the hard drive to be detected in a new installation, the drivers for the add-in SATA controller/motherboard must be loaded at the beginning of installation.
The drivers for the controller/motherboard can probably be found either on the CD that came with it or on the manufacturer's website. These drivers do not come from Seagate; they come from the motherboard manufacturer. Simply load the required drivers on the diskette and have it ready.

    Here are some images of Serial ATA cables. Click to expand.


  • The BIOS will not detect a hard disk if the data cable is damaged or the connection is incorrect.
    Serial ATA cables, in particular, can sometimes fall out of their connection. Be sure to check your SATA cables are tightly connected to the SATA port connection.
  • The easiest way to test a cable is to replace it with another cable. If the problem persists, then the cable was not the cause of the problem.
  • For ATA drives, Seagate recommends using UDMA cabling with a maximum length of 18 inches. UDMA cables have color coded connections which require proper orientation when connecting.
    • Blue connector - always connects to the motherboard.
    • Grey (middle) connector - is used for slave devices on the cable.
    • Black connector - is used for master device connection.

  • to determine whether it is providing sufficient electrical power to operate the drives and devices you have in your computer.
  • If the drive is still not spinning, connect it in another computer if possible.
  • Connect the drive in a SATA-USB enclosure or something similar if possible.
  • If the drive does not spin up after all of these steps, please visit the Warranty page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    ATA: It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used.
  • SeaTools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive. If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    ASUS K8V-MX mother board can support seagate 500gb

    Yes, it has Serial ATA support (as well as Parallel ATA) so go ahead and use it.
    Whether you will need a Molex 4-pin power cable or a converter (to SATA power specification) is dependent on the age of the drive (whether it has a molex connector or a sata clip) and what you have available at your power supply.

    I have K8V-MX motherboard. I am planning to buy a 1TB SATA HDD Will this support ? Thanks! Madhusudan

    Your model KV8-MX motherboard does not have a SATA controller.
    To install a 1Tb SATA hard drive you need to install a PCI SATA controller and then connect the SATA hard drive to this controller board.

    Change of hard disk from 160 gb ide to 250 gb sata

    Hello there.

    I checked the specifications on your motherboard from here .

    As you can see it does indeed support SATA Hard Drives, as per the page:

    SATA Four-Channel Serial ATA supports 4 SATA II devices

    Each SATA hard drive uses up 1 of the channels, so you can use a total of 4 SATA drives at once.

    Hope this helps.
