SATA HDD's do not have master/slave/cs jumpers like IDE drives do because only 1 cable is connected to each drive, so you have to plug whichever HDD you want to be primary into the SATA0 port (or SATA1 if there is no SATA0) on the motherboard.

Also make sure you have your masterboot recrod installed on the drive you use to boot.

ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe NForce 2 Ultra 400 Motherboard (90M7A770GOUAYOZ) When I built my PC in '05 I installed 4 HDD's on the A7N8X-E Deluxe. Now my main drive is failing so I've cloned it to a new HDD, but...


hi Memory,

You can try 2 things:

1. If the HDD has jumpers make sure to set the one you want to boot from as the master.

2. Go into your BIOS and choose which device to boot from first.

Also just to be sure disable all other drives and boot with the single drive to ensure that it actually works. There are bootdisks that can help with booting issues one being called ultimate boot cd but i wouldn't touch settings unless you know what your doing.

Hope this helps,

Omeil

I have recently bought a samsung SATA spintpoint 1tb hdd. The hdd gets stuck at the post. It says the name and no of the drive but nothing else. I have to reboot. Controller issues with the Sil3112A?? ...


No, the controller is just fine - but make sure that the RAID setting is disabled.
If the hard disk can't go beyond POST then it is damaged. Test it this way: put it in anther functioning pc, then install in it this free program
http://www.hdtune.com/files/hdtune_255.exe
Run the program and test the hard disk.

this motherboard does not support your new Hard Drive. SATA is a connection type required for your hard drive. Your motherboard supports IDE connector. You probably can get a pci card that allows you to attach the hard drive.

Please make sure your HDD are in proper configuration. An IDE device have two cofigurations. Master and slave. Any motherboard will have two IDEs. Primary and Secondary. You can connect two drives to one IDE in Master and slave configuration. This is determined by setting a small pin called jumper setting. You should visit the following website to know more about setting jumper for a Hard disk. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/installation_assistance/jumper_setting_illustrations/ http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=ATA_Jumper_Settings&vgnextoid=cbc974850ce0e010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD This way you could solve your problem.
