Question about ASUS PCH-DL Motherboard

Open Question

My Asus PCH-DL motherboard, has a total of 300GB hard drive space

I tried to get the Sata Driver to identify it as 300gb disk space, i can not find the driver, so i ended up only 80GB harddisk space.

Can you find the correct SATA driver for this motherboard?

I have been downloading for hours. and the F6 in Windows 2003 Server can not read the files on the SATA drivers i downloaded from the net

SOURCE: First time connecting SATA hard drive to this motherboard - do I need special drivers?

You shouldn't need any drivers- as long as the drive shows up in BIOS and looks correct- windows will load the drivers you need to make it work. Then when it's running - load the chipset.inf driver and the LAN driver from the motherboard CD. This will get you on the internet so you can go to the ASUS site and download all the new drivers (Including the newest chipset and LAN drivers)

SOURCE: Sata hard disk drive on asus p4v8x-x motherboard

Okay. If your board has SATA connection slots it most definitely is SATA compatible. Check on your motherboard how many SATA slots you have, make sure that your HDD is connected to on the Mboard with any other drive in a numerical order (on the Mboard right next to the SATA slot it should read SATA 1 or SATA 2 ........). If that does not work plug is you HDD drive loosely so that when you switch on your computer you can listen to the HDD. should it emit a humming sound, meaning its powering up the problem could lie with your SATA slot or SATA Data Cable, try a different DATA cable if this does not work try blowing air into the SATA slot on the Mboard, If no luck then maybe the slot is burnt out or malfuntioning. Should you not hear a humming sound coming from your HDD then its either faulty or the there is no power going to it. try to alternate between the cable of your power supply. Try these and Please let me know how you go.

A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD

If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

The new HDD uses a SATA data interface as well as a SATA power interface. You will need a SATA cable as well as a power supply that supports the SATA power connectors. Since this is an older machine you will probably need to buy a SATA cable and a Molex to SATA power connector. This should cover any cabling issues that you are having.

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.

? Hard Drive Support Question...

On the net there are systems usig the EliteGroup (ECS) PT800CE-A with a 300GB HDD (here). If you are running windows xp with SP1 or greater, your technical limitation is 2.2TB (2200GB) due to the addressing limitatons in the 32 bit Opeating system. If you are using Windows XP 64Bit Edition, you have a maximum theoretical size of 144PB (144000TB) though this may not be achievable.

The BIOS may not be able to address quite this much space, and the IDE or SATA controller may have its own Addressing Limitation. The newer your hardware is, the less likely you are to have issues with large sized drivers.
