Kept trying Asus for your board details but their site was down,and also need to know socket type, but you may need to upgrade your bios to support large drives. You can find the motherboard support site here:- http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

    Im just about to buy a SATA II 500GB hard disk for this MB, i need to know if this would be compatible with the MB??! Thanks


    SATA 2 (SATA 300) is not backwards compatible with a SATA (SATA 150) controller. In order to use a SATA 2 drive on a SATA (SATA 1?) controller, the hard drive must have a jumper position to restrict it to using SATA (SATA 150), and a jumper must be installed. Some drives have the jumper position available (e.g. some recent Samsung), some don't (e.g. some recent Maxtor).
    This information can also probably be easily found on your hard drive manufacturer's web site.
    If your drive does not have the jumper position available, you must return it and get a SATA 2 one that does, or a SATA drive.

    Sony Vaio PCV-RS720G not recognizing new Seagate Hard Drive. When I first installed the drive with XP OS running, the pc recognized and formated the drive. Since then the original drive that I was going to...


    This should be a quick fix. How old is the machine you are trying to update? Do you know if the jumpers on the drive are in order? Is it a SATA or ATA drive? Did a CD or Disk come with your drive? Check jumpers on your old drive and make sure the jumpers on the new drive are similar ( master, slave, cs ). Usually leaving on Master is best. Is anything else on this line, like a CD or DVD? I think you'll get it from here.

    Failing install of PCI SATA Drive


    You need to load the SATA Controller driver for the XP install to access the HDD.

    The driver will need to be downloaded and extracted to a floppy diskette, then loaded during the XP install.

    If your system doesn't have a floppy drive, you'll either need a USB floppy drive or create a slipstreamed XP CD with the driver added to the CD.

    Adding a IDE hard drive


    It appears that your system has one ide controller for the optical drives, and one sata controller for the hard disk(s).

    I recommend installing another SATA drive, the controller in your system is SATA150, so don't spend any extra for a SATA II (300) interface, though if you find a good deal on one, there's no harm in using it, they're backwards compatible to SATA I.  I've been seeing 500gig SATA drives on sale for around 100$.
