Question about EliteGroup K8M800-M2 Motherboard
Have a VIA K8M800 motherboard and i want to install a 500gb sata hdd. i have tested the cable and nothing is wrong with that. have changed the bios battery and nothing. when i go into bios i can only get the system to start with the drive set to raid. but other than that bios does not pick the drive up and doesnt even say that i have empty sata ports. neither BIOS or WinXP pick the HDD up. very iritating as i am doing this for a friend and hes replacement machine is some what... dated so i need to get this working ASAP
VIA K8M800 is an AMD platform motherboard and should pick up the sata drive. Connect the drive to the motheboard, make sure that both leads are connected, go into the bios and set the bios to default settings, hit F10, save and exit, the machine will restart, go back into the bios and check to make sure its been picked up by the system.
post back if you need any more help
