You can enter into the BIOS settings by pressing Del key when the system is booting up.
Restore it to default settings. It might work... Not sure Just check it.

Want put additional hard drive in presario s6020wm is this possiable, also do the rpm speeds have to be the same I have a maxtor diamondmax plus 9 80g that spins at 7200, the one in the computer spins at...


It’s very possible to do and no it doesn't matter that each drive runs at different Rpm speeds.
The difference between a hard disk drive that runs at 5400Rpm and a 7200 Rpm is data transfer speed. The 7200 drive will run faster but the drives cache also plays a big part when transferring data. A drive that runs at 7200Rpm with a 16MB cache will run faster than a drive with 8MB cache. The 7200Rpm drive will run a little hotter than a 5400Rpm drive and use a little less power. Typically you’d want to use the 7200Rpm drive as the primary drive. (With windows installed on it).
The 5400Rpm drive should be used as a storage drive and be connected on the same data cable as a slave drive. How to safely remove data from the 5400 drive. Before you shut down the system, open windows explorer. Click on the C:\ than delete the Boot.ini, AUTOEXEC.BAT, and IO.SYS files. (By doing this the drive will no longer be bootable but all the data will stay intact). Shut down the system. Remove the 5400Rpm drive from the system. Install the 7200Rpm drive. (The new drive is an IDE drive. Set its jumper so it is a Master.) Guide to setting-up an IDE drive; http://freepctech.com/pc/001/installing_ide_devices.shtml
Set the jumper for the 7200 drive as a Master with a slave. (The 5400 drive will be added later).
Once the drive is configured and installed boot the system and enter the bios/CMOS menu. Press the delete key to enter the bios or watch you're screen you may need to press the F1, F2 key or F10 key to enter the bios menu. Instruction on how to move about while in the bios is shown at the bottom of the bios screen. You should see the model numbers of you’re 7200 DiamondMax drive within the main bios menu.
You will also need to set the boot menu / boot order.
Open the Boot menu. A typical boot menu would list as follows:
1st Boot device, Floppy disk drive
2nd Boot device, CD-ROM drive
3rd Boot device, Primary hard disk drive.
4th Boot device, not needed
Compaq does not provide bios settings within their user guide. Before you save and exit the bios, open the CD-ROM drive and load you're windows CD or the restore CD from Compaq. Save and exit the bios. When the system reboots it should start up the windows CD or the restore CD. Follow the on-screen instructions from the restore CD. Once windows is installed update windows. When finished it is now time to add the old 5400Rpm drive. Shut down the system. You will need to change the jumper on the on the 5400Rpm drive. Set the jumper to Slave and insert it into an open bay. Connect the data cable and power cable. Check that all cables are fully connected. Boot you're system. Windows should load. You're 5400Rpm drive will most likely be labeled as letter E. You can change the drive letter order by opening the run window. Click Start and in the run window type in: diskmgmt.msc than click ok. Open Help. Click, help topics. Click on disk management.

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;

Hi m_k_bishop,
You must connect the CD-RW drive to the Secondary IDE connector on your board.
It can not be connected to the Primary IDE port.
(All SATA drives are seen as master drives in the bios).
With that in mind there shouldn't be any data cable connected to the Primary IDE slot.
When you first load the Bios menu screen you should see your CD-RW listed & you should see your SATA drive listed. Go to the title, " BOOT " in your bios.
(If your system has a floppy disk drive connected your Boot menu should read as follows);

First boot device [Floppy Disk]
Second boot device [Your CD-RW drive]
Third boot device [Your SATA drive as shown from the main menu]
No need for a fourth device.

Save the bios & exit. The system will auto restart.

(At boot up re-enter your bios).
Next change the [RAID Mode] to SATA or Enabled anything but RAID.
Once completed save & exit the bios. If everything is connected correctly & you made the changes above your system should see your SATA drive & windows should install.
(Load the windows CD into your CD-RW drive).
The Asus manual lacks the proper information needed for you to make the correct setting changes in the bios.

Good luck m_k_bishop!
Post back if still have trouble... You shouldn't!

ABit-Th7 raid Drivers


This problem is very simple.... Using RAID in booting in cd/dvd cannot be done in this kind of processing. you have to change the setting of Hard Disk and CD/DVD to IDE in BIOS . To change the setting in the BIOS you need to press the Delete After you power on the computer.. In Main menu in the bios you will find the hard disk or cd/dvd settings to IDE, SATA, and RAID. change both hard disk and cd/dvd to IDE configuration. make sure the first boot in the Boot menu is the cd/dvd, where your windows cd installer is inserted. Save the settings by pressing F10 key in the keyboard.. I have the same problem as of you because i try it to change SATA, RAID but cannot boot to cd and cannot detect the hard disk when installing OS, but in IDE settings its okay.. and it works perfect.. after you installed the windows properly, you can change the Hard Disk or cd/dvd configuration to SATA or RAID. TY

HOPE I CAN HELP

No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3
