SOURCE: Sata hard disk drive on asus p4v8x-x motherboard

I faced the same problem with this mobo...I needed a SATA HDD for data storage, while the system was on a PATA HDD. The drive was a WDC 1600 AAJS, a SATA2 compatible one and to make it work, I had to jumper it down to SATA 1. (5-6 pins as I remember) I also set my BIOS the way it was described above. (ACPI 2-disable, APIC-disable) Then at restart, BIOS recognized and listed it. Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 works with it seamlessly.
As I ran through several sites, I saw that old power supplies can also cause similar problem,. If you connect a SATA drive with 3.3V needs, since old PSUs can feed only with molex-SATA power converter cable and that does not provide 3.3V.

Sir, i have an msi n1996 (vt8237r & km400 8237) mother board. My sata 160 gb hdd is not getting recognized in bios. Pl. help. (it is reported somewhare on the net that i have to enter into the...


I enabled SATA support on my BioStar M7VIZ-SATA MOBO (it is km400 and 8237r, like yours) by first installing the VIA SATA RAID drivers. At this point, Windows recognized the device controller but not the 120GB drive. The problem was that the system doesn't support "newer" SATA drives, so I installed a jumper on the disk drive to set it to "150" mode... SATA version 1 compatibility. After that, Windows immediately recognized the drive and mounted the filesystem.

I think it was a Western Digital drive. Other manufacturers have a different name for the same jumper. Also, I read that one type (Samsung?) can only be set to the old SATA standard by getting the drive running in a SATA 2 environment, then using a utility program to adjust the drive's microcode setting.

Good Luck to you.

SATA HDD is not detceted properly


As far as I can remember, the VIA VT8237R southbridge used on this board has a bug, causing it not to recognize SATA II drives.
You may be able to configure your hard drive to use the slower SATA 150 mode (1.5 GBit/s or 150MB/s) by setting a jumper on the drive. Unfortunately, this is not supported by all models - check the jumper description on the drive.

If the drive doesn't offer this feature, you might consider adding a SATA controller like this one (you may be able to find better and cheaper controller cards at your local computer store).

New sata harddisk not detected


The mother boards from that time you had to install the RAID drivers to use SATA drives. The drive disc which came with the mother board should have the drive, but I would suggest going to ASUS's web site and download the latest drivers. Click the link below, Select which OS (Operating System) you are using, Next click the little + box next to "IDE" and the drivers needed will be listed.

Same problem, but not solved


Matias,
Please remove the jumper on the SATA drive. Boot to the bios & see if the SATA drive is listed. If it is you're good. If this is the first SATA you have tried in the Asus board & my suggestion also failed to show the SATA drive you are left with two options.
One the SATA drive is defective or the SATA motherboard controller is bad. You can call Asus tech M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EDT. At 1-812-282-2787, there is little wait time when calling Asus tech. Asus does not charge you for calling them.

Hdd


your board may support sata however it may support sata 1 not 2 and your hdd may be a sata 2 one..so all you have to do is to check the hdd jumper and set it on sata 1 and also check the bios for the right settings to be made...
good luck
