Question about Gigabyte GA-965QM-DS2 (rev. 2.0) Motherboard

1 Answer

PATA boot problem

I try to setup a backup storage server with a GA-965QM-DS2 and 6 SATA drives (maximum of SATA). But for the OS itself, I want to install it on 7th disk which will be a PATA.

My problem is just after the POST (after the Intel ME screen), the server hangs and I cannot continue the installation of the OS.

I already try several PATA disks with same result. But if I plug a CD/DVD drive, it works as it does.

I also flashed the BIOS to the latest firmware (F4).

Help will be appreciated.

Regards,
Bénoni Delfosse

Did you set the boot options to boot from the PATA drive? Did you set the port mode to legacy IDE? Did you try to let the BIOS determine the type of drive?

Sata cable & pata cable have a any jumper setting


Hi,
The hard drive / optical drive have jumper settings, not the motherboard. PATA has jumper settings, but SATA do not require any. The diagram of the setting is drawn on the hard disk itself below the serial number etc. For SATA, look on the motherboard for the SATA ports. Each port will be named as like SATA 0, SATA 1 etc. If you want the hardd disk to boot first, plug it in SATA 0. and the next device in SATA 1. However, you can also set the first and other boot device from the BIOS itself, in case of SATA.

Sir , I have an Intel D102GGc2 Motherboard .I have connected two hard drives one Sata one Pata . And want to boot from Sata hard drive first . So my problem is that as soon as I connect both the drive...


One needs to be a master and one needs to be pegged as a slave. You can have seperate OS..Win 7 on ons and XP on the other then at post screen you can select which OS you want.

Have installed two new SATA HDD's, but don't show up in CMOS


Just a tip: Your OS shouldn't be on RAID. RAID is for storage.

If it is a software RAID you will need to load drivers

Even if they are disabled in boot configuration, it will show them as being attacked. You should have two areas in your BIOS/CMOS for configuring & enabling, along with setting order of boot.

Server 2008 is not detecting your drives, because it does not have drives for what ever hard drive controller you are using. You will need to determine which controller your drives are attached to and load the appropriate driver during setup. I believe this system has built in SCSI and SATA controller and often shipped with add - in storage cards. Our came with a promise sata raid controller.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

Can't Enter Setup/Can't Access BIOS


Could be that your PATA drive is pooched. Have you tried accessing the bios with the sata drive in, how about with both drives connected, how about with none.

Try a ps2 keyboard as well, as it may work on the legacy bios option.

Only fans are starting - nothing else


Hi,
Have you checked the CMOS/BIOS Battery? How about reseting the BIOS jumpers?

Test the system using Motherboard with processor and 1 RAM, just connect power and screen only, switch it on. It it fails try another memory... Whether the memory, board of processor is the problem.

Fixya me when done....

Post me back if it doesn't work...

Sata hdd not detected.


Check the bios to see if it made the pata drive primary. If it did the system will try to boot off of your backup drive and you could think that it is not seeing your sata drive. If that is the problem you must go into the drive configuration and make the sata primary.
