MSI motherboard - SATA Hard Drive

I need a manual for the MSI 8xtreme motherboard. I am trying to set up the boot harddrive to SATA but also want to use an old hard drive (Not SATA) for data only. Bios sets the data drive as Channel 1 and the SATA boot disk as Channel 3 (Channel 2 is the CD-ROM). How can I change Channel 1 and 3 over.

    The mother board is MSI 865 GM3 – LS.

    I have a boot hard disk connected to the SATA and a data hard disk connected to the IDE (PATA).

    With the On-Chip Serial ATA set to Auto the channels show as:



    IDE Channel 0 Master (the SATA disk)

    IDE Channel 0 Slave (None)

    IDE Channel 1 Master (the CDROM)

    IDE Channel 1 Slave (None)





    With On-Chip Serial ATA set to Legacy Mode the channels show as:



    IDE Channel 0 Master (the PATA disk)

    IDE Channel 0 Slave (None)

    IDE Channel 1 Master (the CDROM)

    IDE Channel 1 Slave (None)

    IDE Channel 2 Master (the SATA disk)

    IDE Channel 3 Slave (None)



    How can I get IDE Channel 0 to show the SATA disk (the boot disk)

    And the IDE Channel 2 to show the PATA disk (the data disk)?

My hard disk is 80GB (IDE) when i try to connect another hard disk 320GB (SATA) the mainboard doesnot detect 320GB SATA hard disk and my pc restart every moment note: MSI 848P NEO-V


Hello samanozy ,
Some older motherboards will not support a too wide HDD whatever the interface.
Another point is to know if you have set the boot priorities in the BIOS . Your machine is maybe attempting to boot from the Sata drive .
Best regards ,

You can get a manual here:

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/content.php?S_ID=450

Did you set the boot sequense in your bios ??

First your CD or DVD drive
Second you harddrive.

Harddrive must be in sata 0.
CD or DVD must be in sata 1.

Or look in the manual how the settings should be.

Good luck.

Sometimes my harddrive is not recognized at boot up so it defaults to trying to boot from the dvd drive where it says insert disk. but if open bios and then exit it shows up but I have to manually tell it...


one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer to fail
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Msi 848p neo v motherboard problems.


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.

A new sata LG dvd room,it work correctly,but i can't boot from it


First make sure that the DVD drive is the only drive listed to be booted from. Make it the first and only drive. Unfortunately most motherboards have an issue with booting from a SATA DVD drive. Secondly turn off Sata RAID if you have it. If this doesn't work then your motherboard isn't capable. It is too old and from what I can tell from the manual it is running SATA 986p, which is only 150mp/s thats not even Sata 1.5. Early Sata controllers couldn't do installations of OSs at all.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!
