Question about Asrock 945GCM-S Motherboard
I installed an SSD as boot device for Windows 7/32 a month ago. For the last days it stops working after being in use for one hour and I have to turn off and on my pc to make work again. Someone told me to set the BIOS to AHCI mode for the SATA port but there is no such setting in the BIOS. Any suggestions? Regards Thomas

It is possible that you are trying to use a SATA II HDD in a system that supports SATA. SATA II devices are not backwards compatible usually,

near the interface port of the hard drive you have to put a jumper that limit the connection speed from 3.0giga per second to 1.5giga per second, I think that would solve the problem because the hard drive speed goes to 3 giga per second and the motherboard p4vm8 serial ata port can support up to 1.5giga per second.

Check your user documentation for the hard drive to see if it has a user-accessible jumper that will switch it to 1.5Gb mode. I know that Seagate/Maxtor drives have a jumper they refer to as Force 150 and Western Digital calls their jumper OPT1 Enabled. If this option exists with this hard disk, it should solve your problem.

SOURCE: SATA drive not detected
If you will be loading xp on the new drive,You will just need to press F6 during the setup when ask if you want to install 3rd party driver,and follow the instruction and put the SATA driver disk in when ask.(Even during xp setup It will say SCSI device until all the drivers for it are loaded)

I had the same problem. Same HDD on P4vm8.
1. Installed latest Bios. 1.30
2. Installed a jumper on pins 1&2 of the Barracuda's jumper block to limit the Drive's transfer rate to 1.5 GB/Sec.
