Insert the SATA and Power connector, enter the BIOS and ensure that SATA 2.0 controller is enabled.

Now boot into Windows and click control panel.
Double click Administrative tools and double click Computer Management.
Left on screen: Select Disk Management under the heading, storage.

Here is where the hard drive should be detected. If not present click action, followed by refresh.

Now select your new drive and format it using NTFS.

Take care!

Gigabyte GA-6OMM7E (GA-60MM7E) Motherboard have not display, please solution to me.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

GA-K8VM800M MOTHERBOARD The problem with the board is that, initially it got the message that disk boot failure, after checking bios settings, still it got same message. I have changed the IDE cables...

Try making your hard drive as the first boot in the bios and just connect your hard drive only on the motherboard ( remove cd/dvd drive, etc..). Make sure your hard drive is detected in the bios. Then restart your computer again.

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.
