If your motherboard does not support SATA, then you will need a SATA controller like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816132001
This will require an empty PCI slot.

Look for a sata connector on your main board that looks like this:

If your main board does not have one of these connector then you do not support SATA. If it does make sure you connect the drive in SATA0 or SATA1 what ever is the lowest. Also SATA does not require any jumper configuration.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Msi p4m800pro ide issues


No Boot (system does post) - Hard drives not detected • Check jumper settings on all IDE devices • Verify that IDE controller is configured correctly in the BIOS • Check to make sure that the drive is connected to the correct controller • Make sure drives are configured correctly for RAID • Verify Onchip IDE configuration for ICH5 SATA operation is set correctly • Test drives with different IDE/SATA cables

Windows Setup cant find hard disk ?????????????


Does the BIOS on your system see the drive and show it's model information? Is this the only drive on the system? If the answer is yes for both, then you can download free utilities from the web to wipe the drive clean. This will result in the loss of all existing data on your drive. You can search for "Wipe Disk" and will get several hits for free software. Once you have cleaned the drive, try instlling XP. If the BIOS does not see your drive, the XP can't see it. You may want to try other SATA ports on your motherboard, or try changing the IDE configuration in the BIOS. Let me know if this works.
