Sort of obvious (judging by the stuff you tried) but, Did you try going into the BIOS setup and making sure the hard disk is the first boot device? (if its lower than something else, say a windows hard disk, it'll load windows instead, etc.) If not something is wrong with your linux boot file, and the BIOS can't read/understand it, try reloading linux onto the hard disk.

Sir my problem is that my SATA hard disk not detected by system. Also when i detect the SATA/IDE hard disk system hang, and nothing happen. But that time keyboard not hang. My SATA ports work...


Each PATA device (disk-drive or CD/DVD) drive has some small jumpers.

For the two devices connected via the one ribbon-cable,
set the jumpers on one device to the MA(ster) setting,
and set the other device to the SL(ave) setting.

Or, set both devices on the one cable to the C(able)S(elect) setting.

When properly set, both devices will be quickly and properly detected.

Be sure that your BIOS SETUP has been configured to allow SATA devices,
i.e., not set to "disabled" mode.

PATA Harddisk connection


Hi Murtazasoni, if you have the manual for K8V-MX motherboard you shouldn't have any troubles. You can download it from this link, Win XP; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K8V-MX&SLanguage=en-us
The IDE data ribbon only connects to the PATA drive & motherboard in one direction. Please see the top of page 1-22 for instructions. Most data ribbons for IDE drives have three connectors. The connector farthest from the other two connectors (Two connectors very close to each other), is plugged directly to the motherboard as shown & explained on the top of page 1-22.
If you are only connecting 1 PATA drive to the data ribbon, connect it to the last connector on the ribbon, leaving the next connector for another PATA drive.
Setting the jumper on a PATA drive. Every hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. This sticker includes information about the drive. Things like the model number of the drive. There is also information regarding how the drive is to be set. Example: if the drive is to be the only drive in the system its jumper should be set to (Master drive only). If there is another PATA drive in the system connected to the same ribbon cable than change the jumper on the drive to, (Master with a Slave). The second PATA drive's jumper must be set to, (Slave). Connect the power cable to the PATA drive ['s]. Re-check all connectors (internally) before closing the case. Boot the system & press the Delete key on the keyboard every two seconds until the main bios menu opens. Open your manual to the top of page 2-7. Here you'll learn how to move about while in the bios. At the main menu you should see your PATA drive. Listed to the right of Primary IDE Master you should see the model number of the PATA drive listed. If not than the drive was not connected correctly. Shut down the system. Unplug the power cord from the system, open the case & re-check the data ribbon for correct orientation, solid insertion & solid insertion of power cable to drive. Connect the power cord to the system & boot to the bios again. Once the drive is listed go to the title Boot, section 2.6, page 2-27 & follow the instruction through to page 2-28.
Open your CD-ROM drive & load your windows CD, close the CD drawl.
Save bios changes & exit. The system will auto restart.
The system should start loading windows if you set the boot device correctly as shown in the manual.
If you find this too difficult to follow, suggest you ask a friend with more PC knowledge for assistance.

Good luck!
Mike

Reboot


Hi satiewe, no not you're CD. You'll need to enter the notebook's bios. How to get into the bios? Right after you press the power on button, start pressing the delete key every two seconds. The bios main menu should load. If pressing the delete key fail to load the bios menu, try again & press the F2 key every two seconds. The main menu will look like this:
1583ec1.jpg Look at the bottom of the menu & there are instructions on how to move about while in the bios. Go to the title, Advanced.
Listed to the right of; [PATA Primary Master : xxxxx] Where xxxxx is the model number of the hard drive, (Ex: ST80325B). Write this number/letter down. Than go to Boot .
Under boot is, Boot Device Priority. The normal order should be;
1st boot device, [floppy]
2nd boot device, [CD-ROM] - model name.
3rd boot device, [Hard disk drive]? The name of the drive was listed at the main menu as, Pata Primary Master (What you wrote down is what must show here). Than save the bios change & exit. The system will restart. If you placed the correct drive in the correct order you're system will start up.

Good Luck!
Mike
