How to install sata hdd for mother board asrock m266a


The drive installs physically like any any hard drive. The problem is that this motherboard does not support the SATA protocol. You would need to get an expansion PCI card SATA controller. Even then, since the motherboard BIOS is not set up for SATA, you would not be able to use the SATA drive(s) as the boot device. Also, you would need a Molex to SATA power adapter for your power supply since the SATA power connector is different. And you would need a SATA data cable if the expansion card does not come with one.

Upgrade hard drives on 670


There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.

I have a MSI-7309 motherboard and I was wondering if there was a pci card that I could get to give me more sata connections then just the 2 that I have filled up.


Hello there,
Yes there is it should look like the image below. They call this raid card or simply PCI SATA card it sells for $15 -20++.

pcsyke_113.jpg

There are a lot to choose from, consider your requirements some cards do have e-sata or IDE. it also comes with one 18 inch sata cable. Use up to 4 SATA I or SATA II Devices using this SATA I Speed Host Adapter, since PCI Bus is not Fast Enough for SATA II Speed if you wish to save money this card will provide you with access to all four SATA Ports at 1.5GB/s per port. Use New 1TB Western Digital Seagate or Hitachi Drives with your older PCI Based computer. supports up to 2TB of Hard Drives.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FIxYa.

Is it compatible to use a sata hard drive


Not without a host card like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816102065
You don't have any SATA ports on your motherboard. You can use a host card to add those ports in, if you have a free PCI slot.
Have fun and good luck.

My Computer did not access Western Digital Hard Disk, Model No. WD 1600 AABB Caviar SATA.


Good morning! Please make sure that the drive’s power and SATA cables are properly connected. If the Serial ATA host adapter card is installed in a 64-bit PCI slot on the system motherboard, move the card to a 32-bit slot.

Verify that only one power cable (either SATA or legacy) is connected to the drive. Check to see that the power connector and SATA interface cable are securely attached and that the
SATA host adapter card is properly seated in the PCI slot.

The Serial ATA interface connects each drive in a point-to-point configuration with the built-in SATA port on the motherboard or with the SATA host adapter card; therefore eliminating the master/slave relationship as required with EIDE. Each drive utilizes its own
cable for data transfer rates. Jumper settings for Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives are mainly used for enterprise storage environments.

Most third party controller cards and RAID adapters are recognized as a SCSI device under Device Manager. This is normal and will not affect your drive or system performance.

To verify if the Serial ATA drive is recognized by the system, Right-click on the My Computer icon, select Properties, left-click on the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager in the window. Double-click on Disk Drives. Your new Western Digital Serial ATA drive should be listed as a "SCSI Disk Device" or "Serial ATA Disk Device." If not, make sure that all cables are securely attached and that your system BIOS has been properly configured. regards

Harddrive is not detecting bios


get a hard drive kit that will connect it via usb or get a PCI card that will allow you to install the PCI card into a PCI slot and then attach the hard drive to the PCI card ( ensuring you select the correct PCI card ) ie if its a sata drive then get a sata PCI controller card and if its IDE then get an IDE PCI controller card.
Also check for motherboard updates for your computers motherboard and also check in the bios to ensure LBA is enabled and that its detecting the hard drive.

Epox motherboard and SATA disk


According to the hard drive manufacturer Maxtor, motherboard host controllers using the VIA and SIS chipsets VT8237, VT8237R, VT6420, VT6421L, SIS760, SIS964 found on the ECS 755-A2 manufactured in 2003, do not support SATA 3 Gbit/s drives. To address interoperability problems, the largest hard drive manufacturer, Seagate/Maxtor, has added a user-accessible jumper-switch known as the Force 150, to switch between 150 MB/s and 300 MB/s operation.[9] Users with a SATA 1.5 Gbit/s motherboard with one of the listed chipsets should either buy an ordinary SATA 1.5 Gbit/s hard disk, buy a SATA 3 Gbit/s hard disk with the user-accessible jumper, or buy a PCI or PCI-E card to add full SATA 3 Gbit/s capability and compatibility. Western Digital uses a jumper setting called "OPT1 Enabled" to force 150 MB/s data transfer speed. OPT1 is used by putting the jumper on pins 5 & 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

How to use/add sata on my mobo?


You need to add a controller card for SATA. These are not expensive. One you might consider is this:

Vantec UGT-ST200 Serial ATA PCI Host Card

It costs about $25, and is available many places, including Tiger Direct, Fry's Electronics, and others. Here is a link to one on the Fry's website. Shop around, you might even find it somewhere else cheaper:

http://shop4.frys.com/product/4236634?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Once you install the card in an empty PCI slot, you install a new SATA hard drive, and cable it to it. It should work fine with your existing PATA drive(s).

UPGRADE HARD DRIVE


Hi,
basically your system board has a PCI controller interfave and will only allow you a maximum of 100G hard drive. if you want to upgrade to SATA interface you need to purchase a SATA Adapter card that goes to one of the vacant PCI slot. this will then allow you to upgrade to 200G-300G hard drive. you also need to upgrade your power supply. SATA hard drives has different power connectors. if you are having problems finding these parts try to ask dell spare parts at 800-3573355 or 800-8228965.

hope this resolves your problem.

thanks.

Most of the new systems and motherboards support SATA connectors onboard. In your case there is none as you have found. So the best option is always upgrading to a new motherboard in case you need to add more SATA drives. You can also try to find SATA add-on cards, may a little costly types. These cards use PCI interface and very easy to install but hard to find one. I hpoe you could find one from a hardware store near you. If your motherboard has ordinary PCI slots then the SATA adpter will be less costly, otherwise (if it features a PCI-X slot) it will be costly. Following is a simple description on what the market has to offer: SATA II - 150 4Ports PCI-X with NCQ, Raid 0+1, Raid 0 and Raid 1 ! You can upgrade your desktop computer to have four Channels Serial ATA Generation 1 and Generation 2 transfer rate of 1.5 Gbps. The board provides a 64bit, 133 MHz PCI interface on the host side and four, fully compliant Serial ATA ports on the device side to access Serial ATA storage devices such as hard disk drive, ZIP drive, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM. Note: Fault tolerance: RAID 0 (Striping), RAID 1 (Mirroring), RAID 0+1 (mirrored-stripping) and RAID 1+S (Mirrored-Sparing) improve the data performance and provide the data redundancy and rebuilding.
