What is the correct Integrated Peripherals setting for PATA/SATA with a IDE hard drive on Primary IDE channel as primary system drive, CD Burner on Secondary IDE channel and a SATA DVD Burner on a SATA...


Integrated Peripherals Menu

1) USB Controller -> Enabled
2) USB Device Legacy Support -> Keyboard + Mouse

3) Use the Down Arrow, and highlight ->
On-Chip IDE Configuration. Press the Enter key.

On-Chip ATA(s) Operate Mode - > Native
ATA Configuration -> P-ATA + S-ATA
S-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Channel Selection -> Both
CombinedModeOption -> P-ATA 1st Channel
S-ATA Ports Definition -> P0-3rd
Configure S-ATA as RAID -> NO

4) C.S.A Gigabit Ethernet -> Auto
5) Onboard 1394 Device -> Enabled
6) Onboard Promise IDE -> Disabled
7) AC97 Audio -> Enabled
8) Set Super I/O -> Leave Alone

However let's not cut hairs here.
MAIN thing you need to do F-I-R-S-T, is to write down the settings as they are, BEFORE making changes.

In case a mistake is made, you can go back into BIOS Setup - Integrated Peripherals, and change the settings back to the way they were originally.
This way you can at least use the IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive, with no SATA optical drive.

Then steam under your collar, find someone who knows more, than Ol' Joe.
(Better to have you ********** at me, than leave you with a non-working computer)

Don't forget to Save Changes, or it will be like you have done nothing at all.

My harddrive will not show up on any computer but the light turns on and it makes noise


Is it SATA or IDE? If IDE, there are jumpers on the drive to specify master and slave settings for the drive. If SATA, make sure to have SATA enabled in your BIOS settings

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.

I am using a single SATA II Drive in a new system, GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, AMD 790X & SB750 chipsets. I know I can let the SATA II be a "Native IDE" but isn't that loosing any benefit of the SATA II...


The "Native IDE" mode causes the motherboard to "report" to the Operating System that the installed SATA drive is an IDE drive, rather than reporting "no IDE drives installed", and then requiring the Operating System to load a SATA device-driver to interface with the SATA drive.

Using RAID to "mirror" your hard-drive is a very-cool way to provide a "real-time" and "up-to-date" backup.

Should one of your drives suddenly "die", the other will continue to work, and you can buy another hard-drive, re-establish the "mirroring", and continue to work productively -- no fiddling with offline/stale backups.

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

ASUS P5QC does not detect any devices... I have a HD and a DVD hooked up. The jumpers are set to normal but they are connected to the MB with one cable. Does it need to be a master slave setup?


Yes, since you are using two IDE drives on One flat ribbon cable, you need to set the harddrive as a Master drive, and the optical, (DVD), drive as a Slave drive.

When two IDE drives are installed on one cable, BIOS needs a way to find the drive that has the O/S, (Operating System), then the optical drive.

Would recommend you buy a SATA optical drive, as soon as you can afford it. SATA DVD burners aren't that expensive.
Your motherboard is set up for SATA, and SATA is WAY faster than IDE. (IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA)

Then of course a SATA harddrive, and a fresh genuine copy of Windows in the future.
SATA doesn't care where you plug in a drive, and doesn't care which drive connects to what SATA header. It will find that drive. You can connect any SATA drive, to ANY SATA header on the motherboard.

Having two IDE drives such as an IDE harddrive, and an IDE optical drive on the same cable, S-L-O-W-S your computer down! BIOS has to look to see which drive has the O/S first, then it will look for the optical drive.

Thought I would include two links that tell you, and show you how to set jumpers on the jumper pins, on an IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive,

Can I run Sata and IDe Drives together?


Yes. You have two IDE ATA/133 sockets and two SATA sockets. So you can run a maximum of 4 ATA devices and two SATA devices.
Choose your boot order in BIOS.

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!

I am unable to turn on ide single drive


You need to turn the raid back on and go into the raid utility. Once in the raid utility u should see a function to Break or Delete the raid group. Do this and then the drive should revert to a non-member disk and therefore a single drive. Once this is done u can turn the raid off again.
