Hi THENITMAN,

Please take a look at this page. It says that the largest hard drive you can fit is a 160GB. This is a common problem with older boards. The best way around this is to fit a controller card into one of the PCI slots. This can cause problems when installing windows XP. You can slipstream the the drivers onto a custom bootable windows XP install disk to get round this problem. The computer magazine created this excellent tutorial explaining everything.

I hope this has been helpful.

Please don't forget to rate my solution.

Good luck, Spare head 2

Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and press <DEL> to enter BIOS SETUP.
Ensure that the hard-drive is "enabled", and set to 'AHCI'.
Save the BIOS settings.
Reboot, and install Windows.

Trying to transfer data from an old harddrive i have (maxtor, diamondmax plus 9 80 GB ATA / 133 HDD) to My HP laptop


Install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case the plug this USB hard drive into the USB port in your laptop. The laptop will see it as an external storage device, open the various folders and copy the files to your laptop.
You can delete any unwanted files off this external USB hard disk and use it for backups and file transfer.

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


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

Try to upgrade your drivers for the mainboard
from here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=P4V88

Remember to select the windows you are running.

Upgrade the 4 in 1 driver first, and the SATA RAID Driver.

Hope this solves your problem.

Hardrive not detected


You may have a hardware fault.
Try re-seating the hard drive.
Then check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected.
If the hard disk is not detected then either the hard disk is faulty or the disk controller on the motherboard is faulty.
To further test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external hard drive nor can you open the various folders and files, then the hard drive is faulty.
Then you need to replace the faulty hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive, together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

Maxtor 500 gig internal diamondmax 21


external USB hard drives do not need to be jumpered, if your computer does not recognize the ext. drive probably it is because the enclosure is defective, when you connect the USB cable you should get the "ding-dong" connection sound.

If you think that your computer recognizes the hard drive then jumper it as "secondary" or "cable select" and install it INTERNALLY, then transfer your data, that will prove that there's a problem with the ext. enclosure.

One more thing, maybe the USB port you use is malfunctioning, try one that you know that works (assuming that you have other USB devices that work).

Not indicating hard drive


Usually a hard drive needs to be recognized by the bios (small programe chip on the motherboard) check to see if the hard drive is listed there (if not try a seek by settings to auto ) if the harddrive is recognized but not partitionned or formatted it depends on the operations system you want to install

it is also so that for installing the OS on to the harddrive you temporairilly have to change to boot settings and usually the OS dics has to be bootable .
