Go into BIOS and set the SATA controller to native mode. Then your XP disk will find it.

Check your AHCI (or ACHI, can't remember) settings in your BIOS. Turn them off, use "standard pata mode" even though you're using a SATA drive, and try again.

Hi my ASUS K8S-MX motherboard is not detecting SATA hard drive and Sata DVD Writer. Though my IDE hard drive and DVD Writer is working fine. Please help me with this .


Two thing here that can be the issue.

1. Bad Sata controller onboard
2. Sata controller is disabled in the bios.

The Fix

1. Purchase a independent sata controller there like $25 bucks.

2. Try going into the bios under advanced and make sure its not disabled.

I sure hope this finds your Very Helpful vote! Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderul New Year!

Asus K8VMX board didnot detect SATA hard disk


Sounds like you just need to install your SATA drivers. Look around for your cd/floppy disc of drivers if you have any. When you boot from the CD, It will ask you if you have any other drivers you would like to install, thats when you install them and it should read your SATA hard drive just fine. If you dont have your driver CD anymore search ASUS's website or just google (or similar search engine) your motherboard and look for drivers. Beware of some phony sites though. Good luck :)

Asus p4s8x-mx support CD


If you want a copy of the CDs contact Asus by clicking here and ask if they can sell you a replacement cd for your model.

Instead of getting a replacement CD you can download and run the drivers from Asus download page here:

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
