Question about MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570-030) Motherboard

1 Answer

I want a secondary hard disk. Please lead me through the steps...

I have a Gigabyte motherboard (G31M-S2L) with a primary hard disk containing Windows Vista(Build 6001) SP1. It has plenty of room - it is 680Gig - the processor is an E8500 and i have an Award Bios version 2.4.

One issue i am not sure of is how do I partition /format the secondary hard disk(500Gig Sata 2) given i am thinking of using my spare 2 Windows Xp Pro Setup disks on 2 spare partitions. Or would i use the Paragon Hard Disk Manager program?

What else do I need to have the computer boot to one of the partitions that would be available?

GA-G31M-ES2L supports 2TB Internal Hard Disk


Hello the manual can be downloaded here:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3485#manual

You probably just need to format the drive so you can use it.

The harddrive where windows is installed on must be connectet to sata 0 or 1. port
The drive you have mounted can you connect to the sata 2 port.

If the bios sees it its ok.

Here is some youtube video:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=how+to+format+a+drive&oq=format+a+drive&gs_l=youtube.1.0.0i5l6.2190.7786.0.11662.14.14.0.0.0.0.136.1465.8j6.14.0...0.0...1ac.1.jazllrVg7G8

This shows you how to format the drive.But it depends on your windows system

Good luck

My GA-G31M-S2L gigabyte motherboard still running 5-10 mins. then a sound appear through the mother board speaker and the display has gone


Are you using the integrated video on this board or do you have a dedicated video card?
Also, you could try disconnected the speakers on your system and check if the sound still persists to further isolate your issue.

Hi my friend: please help me for select HDD. 945GCM-S2L Max HDD Support? 945GCM-S2L <- this mainboard supported 2TR Byte?


This motherboard suports SATA (Serial ATA 3Gbps) meaning that it is compatible with any SATA hard drive. A 2TB (Tera Byte) hard drive is the highest capacity available on the market. This motherboard has 4 SATA connections so you can put up to 4 SATA hard drives into it.

My computer have an Intel Dual-Core Processor installed in a Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L motherboard. I re-installed Windows XP and when the computer reboots itself the video was gone and didn't come back in...


Do you use your intergrated video? have you been into the bios and checked that it has not been disabled?
Try boot into safe mode (F8) do you get any video?
If your still not getting anything, write back and we can try something else
