Hi there. I think your board is an early SATA board as it has IDE connectors too. I am not able to access the website you have listed but have had a fair bit of experience with SATA drives on such boards. It might well be that there is an option in your bios to switch between native SATA support and IDEmode. If you can find such a facility in bios then try changing it. You should try the drive on another machine to ensure that it is not defective, if the drive is a new one then try it on a very recent machine.
The issue might that the hard drive is not compatible with your board, some SATA3 drives will not work on older boards. The is true of some SATA2drives. It might just be an incompatibility issue.
If you are trying to install Windows XP then - The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive
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 :)
If you will be loading xp on the new drive,You will just need to press F6 during the setup when ask if you want to install 3rd party driver,and follow the instruction and put the SATA driver disk in when ask.(Even during xp setup It will say SCSI device until all the drivers for it are loaded)
The Board have three sound port one for rear one for front and one for mic plug in the mic pin into the mic port red colored. Then go to the realtek control panel located in the taskbar like a red speaker open it and go to the I/O options and the mic options turn on front mic.
near the interface port of the hard drive you have to put a jumper that limit the connection speed from 3.0giga per second to 1.5giga per second, I think that would solve the problem because the hard drive speed goes to 3 giga per second and the motherboard p4vm8 serial ata port can support up to 1.5giga per second.
