Please check the drives are "Jumpered" correctly, with the First Drive set as "Master" & second drive set as "Slave". Here is a link to help.... http://www.tcs.org/refurb/repairs/07_new_hd.htm

What is the correct Integrated Peripherals setting for PATA/SATA with a IDE hard drive on Primary IDE channel as primary system drive, CD Burner on Secondary IDE channel and a SATA DVD Burner on a SATA...


Integrated Peripherals Menu

1) USB Controller -> Enabled
2) USB Device Legacy Support -> Keyboard + Mouse

3) Use the Down Arrow, and highlight ->
On-Chip IDE Configuration. Press the Enter key.

On-Chip ATA(s) Operate Mode - > Native
ATA Configuration -> P-ATA + S-ATA
S-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Channel Selection -> Both
CombinedModeOption -> P-ATA 1st Channel
S-ATA Ports Definition -> P0-3rd
Configure S-ATA as RAID -> NO

4) C.S.A Gigabit Ethernet -> Auto
5) Onboard 1394 Device -> Enabled
6) Onboard Promise IDE -> Disabled
7) AC97 Audio -> Enabled
8) Set Super I/O -> Leave Alone

However let's not cut hairs here.
MAIN thing you need to do F-I-R-S-T, is to write down the settings as they are, BEFORE making changes.

In case a mistake is made, you can go back into BIOS Setup - Integrated Peripherals, and change the settings back to the way they were originally.
This way you can at least use the IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive, with no SATA optical drive.

Then steam under your collar, find someone who knows more, than Ol' Joe.
(Better to have you ********** at me, than leave you with a non-working computer)

Don't forget to Save Changes, or it will be like you have done nothing at all.

Unfortunately not without purchasing a serial ata controller card as this motherboard only supports the IDE drives.

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.

Secondary IDE channel


the motherboard you have can only support 4 SATA Drives. if you want to use your IDE drives, you have 3 options: 1) buy a SATA to IDE Converter which is around $20-$25. (if you selected this, you can fix the drives into the internal of the pc). 2) buy USB to IDE converter $10-$15. (if you want to fix the drive inside the pc, remove one PCI slot casing cover at the back of the computer casing and use the USB slot at the back of PC). Hope this helps. Good Day!

What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


Mark,
You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.

HDD Installation


Hi gravni,
The bios (MUST see the drive). If the bios does not see the drive neither will windows!
The down below port (as you mentioned) is for IDE devices. IDE1 by name. Use your ATA IDE port for the slower IDE drives or cd-rom drives. (This board does not have a second IDE port).
If the WD drive is a SATA drive connect it to the SATA 2 port. See your manual. Go to page 1-4.
As show in this pic below.


2711d19.jpg Is the WD 500Gb drive SATA or IDE?
It's suggested when adding a new drive into a working system, the user should setup the drive by using the manufactures guide. Click on this link & download WD's pdf file:
http://www.wdc.com/en/library/sata/2079-001042.pdf
You mentioned the drive is hot. This only means it is running.
Include in this post the model number of your WD drive? So I can check the specs.

SATA configuration for MSI P965 Neo --- JMicron hell!


Hi,
Once you have loaded your main board drivers,configuration should be pretty much automatic.Personnally,I have my dvd drive on the standard IDE ribbon cable header,and 2 SATA HDD.One on each SATA header.After loading The mainboard Drivers,Windows did the rest.I haven't found any need to mess around with any BIOS settings at all.
I currently am using a Biostar P4M900 board,but I have dealt with MSI before,and they are pretty much the same deal.

Installing a 2 port ATA-133 IDE adapter card to a desktop w/a hard drive & DVD


I don't think you can boot off of the ATA-133 so you will have to boot off of the IDE on the mobo and have the DVD drive jumpered cable select on the 2nd IDE. Boot that way to make sure the system boots. Shut down. Then instll the ATA-133 adapter with NO DRIVES on it and boot. The system should ask you for drivers for the new hardware. Intall the drivers. Shut down. Attach the new drives to the ATA-133. Reboot. You still might have to go into admin in windows and assign drive letters to the new drives. Anyway, if you are trying to boot off of a drive on the ATA-133 adapter, I don't think you can do it. I have mostly used Asus boards with Award Bios and there was no way to point the boot process to an add-on ATA Controller.
