You must creacte a Floppy disk with SATA drivers so windows can recognize your SATA controller.
To creacte this disk you can boot whit your motherboard CD, or you can download dirver on gigabyte website and then copy it to a floppy.

If you are installing WinXP, you must press F6 when it asks if you have a third party scsi our raid controller.

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.

I have a GA-81PE775-G motherboard, will a WD5002AALX (sata-3) be compatable with this


Hi, I have reviewed the Gigabyte Motherboard that you have mentioned. It has SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) supporting 150 MB per second. Which means that the Hard Drive of Western Digital (SATA 3) which you want to connect is compatible with the SATA port of your Motherboard.

However, the SATA 3 of your Hard Drive supports 3 Gb per second. Hence it will be working in 150 MB per second when you connect to your Motherboard.

Can i use a sata hard drive with my ga 7vklm mobo


The Gigabyte GA-7VKMP motherboard does not support serial ATA SATA drives. Open the link provided; http://tw2005.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Products/Products_GA-7VKMP.htm
2 x ATA 66/100/133 bus master IDE ports
1 x FDD, 2 x HDD and 1 x CD audio input
IrDA(1x5) and COM2 on board
GBT standard front panel
2 x USB2.0 connectors (support 4 ports by cable)

You can connect the adapter below to an opened IDE port and connect a SATA 1.5 drive to your system.
http://www.satagear.com/SATA-MM-A1_SATA_Adapter.html
This should allow you're SATA drive to transfer data faster than the 133MHz standard IDE speed.

Cheers'
Mike

What kind of hardesk can installed to it sata or ide


This motherboard can use a SATA or IDE hard drive since it has connector for both SATA and IDE, but I suggest you use SATA hard drive for faster data transfer.
You can check this link for the complete specs for this motherboard.

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 wont boot with hard drive installed, hard drive beeps and computer shuts down. when I unplug the hard drive the computer boots with DVD drive. Hard drive is good, but used a 2nd one...


sound like you either have a dead SATA socket on the board, use another one, or at worst try a PATA hard drive, second thought is possibly go into the bios and make sure you have no previous hardware raid arrays left behind, sounds odd.. but i have seen it cause similar problems before.

I am using a single SATA II Drive in a new system, GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, AMD 790X & SB750 chipsets. I know I can let the SATA II be a "Native IDE" but isn't that loosing any benefit of the SATA II...


The "Native IDE" mode causes the motherboard to "report" to the Operating System that the installed SATA drive is an IDE drive, rather than reporting "no IDE drives installed", and then requiring the Operating System to load a SATA device-driver to interface with the SATA drive.

Using RAID to "mirror" your hard-drive is a very-cool way to provide a "real-time" and "up-to-date" backup.

Should one of your drives suddenly "die", the other will continue to work, and you can buy another hard-drive, re-establish the "mirroring", and continue to work productively -- no fiddling with offline/stale backups.

Re on MB GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2H AMD740G R Motherboard


You have two SATA connectors but only need one SATA hard Drive. It has two because Gigabyte has a optional RAID setup. Some have 6, it depends on the nodel.

Alright, i looked it up online.

First, It has Dual Channel DDR which means you have to have two sticks of memory the same amount of memory on each stick, or just one. Whichever, you cant mix up different speeds or different size memory stix.

You need to have a SATA Hard Drive not IDE as this model appears to be SATA only. The IDE is meant for the CD Drive.

Is that your Board? Or close? the link is to the website.

Did you get this new? how old is it? This board is meant for setting up a raid system so if its not what you intended, get a smaller or less expensive board. Take it back and say it didnt fit your case just didnt meet your specs that you thought.

Ga-k8ns pro motherboard/ pc self build


Hey me too. Just bought a sata drive. I have the same mobo (AK86-L), and now the same problem. Updated the bios and SATA is enabled. Updated the driver. Tried both sata 1 and sata 2 connections on the mobo. It will not recognize the drive although it picks up that something is connected to the mobo. Its a WD Caviar 500 GB drive. Anyone have any thoughts?
