Question about ASUS A7S8X-MX Motherboard
I heard you may have to do something with the jumpper pins on older motherboards, but I haven't found anything saying it needs to be done on this particular motherboard. My computer won't detect the hard drive, but I don't want to do anything unless I know it's necessary. Does anyone know if I need to do it?
Hi, No jumpers needed, you just have to enable it in your CMOS/BIOS settings. On start, press del to enter the Phoenix-Award CMOS/BIOS Setup utility: 1. In the Advanced window (Onboard Device Configuration), make sure the OnChip SATA is Enabled; 2. In the Main window arrow down to select First SATA Master, press Enter and select auto autodetect and values will be automatically filled; 3. Escape, Save and Exit. A few reminders: a. SATA will only work with Windows 2K SP4; XP SP1 above; 2003 Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
