The BIOS does not detect or recognize the ATA / SATA hard drive Tips and tricks for troubleshooting a Serial ATA or ATA/IDE internal drive that is not detected in the BIOS.
There are six main reasons why a system BIOS will not detect the presence of an internal hard drive. Here is a list of them. They are not in any particular order, but you can follow these steps one by one to troubleshoot this problem:
  1. Drive not enabled in the BIOS
  2. Serial ATA drivers are not properly installed
  3. Faulty or unplugged data cable
  4. Drive is not spinning up
  5. Incorrect jumper settings on the drive
  6. Faulty hard drive
Note: Sections 3, 4, 5, and 6 pertain to PC or Mac systems. Sections 1 and 2 pertain only to PC systems.
For more detailed step-by-step troubleshooting on this topic, please see the Seagate Serial ATA troubleshooter "Drive Not Detected" section.
After verifying that your ATA or SATA port is set to Auto-Detect or is enabled, if you find that your disk drive is not being detected (auto-detected) by the system BIOS, try the following steps to try and isolate/troubleshoot the problem.
  1. this link can be useful.

    System setup is where the date and time are stored and where startup preferences like NumLock or Passwords are defined. In addition, many hardware settings are defined in System Setup.
    In particular, hard disk drives are often controlled here. At the simplest level, hard drives are numbered in Setup as Drive 0, Drive 1, etc or sometimes as Primary Master, Primary Slave. Which ever way these are named, they have a basic ON / OFF setting (sometimes AUTOMATIC or something similar). If your drive is not detected it may be because it is turned OFF in System Setup.
    In most cases, the boot drive is Drive 0 or Primary Master. When you add a second drive to the system, it may be need to be enabled by turning it ON in System Setup.

    Sample screen shot showing a Dell System Setup section for disk drives:
    48-12s.jpg
  2. 48-1s.jpg
  3. To be able to hit the F6 button, you must restart the Setup process, and watch the bottom of the screen after pressing Enter on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. There will be some moments of files being loaded, and then you should see a message appear that says "Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver". This message will only stay on the screen for a couple of seconds, so press F6 as soon as you see it appear.

    (Click to expand)
    48-2s.jpg
  4. After this is done, you will see other messages appear, and it will act as though nothing is happening, but eventually a screen will appear that will allow you to install the drivers for the add-in SATA controller. The screen will look like the sample below:

    (Click to expand)
    48-3s.jpg
  5. After you press S, the driver install process will continue and the floppy diskettes will be needed. Further instructions will be furnished after the driver install process has ended.

    (Click to expand)
    48-4s.jpg
  6. Insert the floppy diskette containing the drivers for the add-in Serial ATA controller.
  7. Once the drivers are loaded, proceed with the normal Windows XP/2000 installation.

A few further notes on the driver diskette:
For the hard drive to be detected in a new installation, the drivers for the add-in SATA controller/motherboard must be loaded at the beginning of installation.
The drivers for the controller/motherboard can probably be found either on the CD that came with it or on the manufacturer's website. These drivers do not come from Seagate; they come from the motherboard manufacturer. Simply load the required drivers on the diskette and have it ready.

  • The BIOS will not detect a hard disk if the data cable is damaged or the connection is incorrect.
    Serial ATA cables, in particular, can sometimes fall out of their connection. Be sure to check your SATA cables are tightly connected to the SATA port connection.
  • The easiest way to test a cable is to replace it with another cable. If the problem persists, then the cable was not the cause of the problem.
  • For ATA drives, Seagate recommends using UDMA cabling with a maximum length of 18 inches. UDMA cables have color coded connections which require proper orientation when connecting.
    • Blue connector - always connects to the motherboard.
    • Grey (middle) connector - is used for slave devices on the cable.
    • Black connector - is used for master device connection.

  • to determine whether it is providing sufficient electrical power to operate the drives and devices you have in your computer.
  • If the drive is still not spinning, connect it in another computer if possible.
  • Connect the drive in a SATA-USB enclosure or something similar if possible.
  • If the drive does not spin up after all of these steps, please visit the Warranty page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    ATA: It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used.
  • SeaTools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive. If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

    How to set the JB Jumper Setting on a wd25eurs Harddrive


    if its a sata hard drive there are no jumper settings the larger driver should take the job as primary


    if you have an ide hard drive

    you can find the jumper location next to the power on a hard drive and the settings for plastic jumper location is usually printed on the top of a hard drive

    IDE-0 means Pri master
    IDE-1 means Pri slave
    IDE-2 means Sec master
    IDE-3 means Sec slave


    single or master :::::

    master with slave ::'::

    slave :::':

    black line between dots is plastic jumper

    note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive between the EIDE and electrical lead/s

    for the sata

    What You Need

    • A Phillips screwdriver and four 6-32 UNC drive mounting screws.
    • A Serial ATA interface cable (sold separately). Maximum length is 39 inches (1 meter).
    • A Serial ATA-compatible power cable or adapter (sold separately).
    • A version of Windows with FAT32 or NTFS file system.
    • A system with a motherboard that has a Serial ATA connector on it, or a Serial ATA host adapter and available PCI slot in which to install the adapter.

    Refer to your computer system documentation to see if your system supports Serial ATA on the motherboard and to locate the Serial ATA connector.


    If your system does not have a Serial ATA connector on the motherboard, you must purchase a Serial ATA host adapter that is compatible with your computer and operating system and install it with the appropriate device driver according to the host adapter manufacturers installation instructions.


    Note: See our list of companies that sell Serial ATA components including host adapters, cables, and power adapters.
    Handling Precautions

    • Disk drives are fragile. Do not drop or jar the drive. Handle the drive only by the edges or frame. Keep the drive in the protective anti-static container until you are ready to install it to minimize handling damage.
    • Drive electronics are extremely sensitive to static electricity. While installing the drive, wear a wrist strap and cable connected to ground.
    • Turn off the power to the host system during installation.
    • Do not disassemble the drive. Doing so voids the warranty.
    • Do not apply pressure or attach labels to the circuit board or to the top of the drive.
    Attaching Cables and Mounting the Drive

    1. Attach one end of the drive interface cable to the Serial ATA interface connector on your computers motherboard or Serial ATA host adapter (see your computer manual for connector locations). Host adapter configuration is shown below.
    Note: Serial ATA connectors are keyed to ensure correct orientation.


    2. Attach the interface and power cables to the drive.

    3. Secure the drive using four 6-32 UNC mounting screws in either the side-mounting or bottom-mounting holes. Insert the screws no more than 0.20 inches (5.08 mm) into the bottom-mounting holes and no more than 0.14 inches (3.55 mm) into the side-mounting holes.
    Note: Do not overtighten the screws or use metric screws. This may damage
    the drive.

    Configuring the BIOS

    Close your computer case and restart your computer. Your computer may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.

    1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 or F2 during the startup process.

    2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect your new drive.

    3. Save the settings and exit the setup program. When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive. If your system still doesnt recognize your new drive, see the troubleshooting section on the back of this sheet.
    Note: Serial ATA is a new interface type.

    Some older systems may see the drive and classify it as a SCSI device if you are using a Serial ATA host adapter. This is normal even though this is not a SCSI disc drive. Many systems BIOS will not identify a Serial ATA drive connected to a PCI SATA host adapter.

    This is because a PCI SATA Host Adapter has its own BIOS which is used to identify hard drives connected to it which is separate from the BIOS of the computer.

    To determine whether or not the SATA Host Adapter is detecting the Serial ATA hard drive, please consult the documentation provided by the Serial ATA Host Adapters manufacturer. This does not affect drive performance or capacity.

    How to install sata harddisk


    With Serial ATA technology quickly replaince IDE/ATA as the new standard in hard disks, more and more computer users will need to know how to install SATA hard drives. The process of installing a SATA hard drive is similar to installing an IDE hard drive, except a bit simpler. Follow the directions in this article to learn how to install a new SATA hard drive.

    1.Detemine whether or not your hard drive supports SATA. SATA technology was not introduced into the market until after 2002, so any consumer PC before that will not support a SATA hard drive. To find out whether or not a SATA hard drive can be installed into your motherboard, you can review the manual that came with your computer, or you can contact your computer's manufacturer. If you have already purchased a SATA hard drive, but have your motherboard does not support SATA technology, you will not be able to use your new hard disk.

    2.Power down your computer and remove any peripherals or connections. Ground yourself either by wearing an anti-static wrist strap, or by touching a piece of unpainted metal. Remove your computer's case.

    3.Locate your hard drive bay. Your hard drive bay should be located beneath your CD/DVD drive.

    4.Locate the SATA data cables on your motherboard. Review the image to the left to get an idea of how your SATA slots may look (not all motherboards look the same). The small, red connections on the bottom-left of the motherboard are your SATA connections.


    5.Take your SATA data cables (the red, smaller cable pictured left) and plug the one end into the motherboard. Insert the data cable into the lowest numbered slot (i.e. 0, 1).

    6.Next, you will want to locate your computer's power cable. Some computers will already have a SATA-compatible power cable available, but others may not. If your computer does not have a SATA-compatible power cable, you will need to buy an adapter. As in the picture above, it will have one white end and one black end. Plug the white end of the adapter into the white end of the power cable in your computer. It should look identical to the one in the picture.

    7.Connect the data and power cables to the back of your hard drive. The larger cable goes in the larger slot, whereas the smaller cable goes in the smaller slot. If they do not fit at first, simply turn them around and try again.

    8.Slide your hard drive into the drive bay. You will want to make sure that the part of your hard drive with the connections on the back is facing outwards. Then, taking a screwdriver, line up the holes in the bay with the holes in your hard drive and screw the SATA hard disk into place.

    9.Power on the computer. If you have installed two SATA drives, unlike with IDE, you should not have to designate them as master or slave (both will be independent drives). If your computer is not reading your new hard drive, power down the computer and check all connections, making sure they are secure.

    Do u need extra wires to install second hard drive in hp pavillion a6110n and where do they go


    if its ide connection on your hard drive and motherboard yes you do it will be a long ribbon cable needed the hard drive will have what looks like 30 mins parallel to each other if its seral ata it will be small black on the back with a small L shapped on the right side for power those are called serial ata and you will need a sata power connecter from your power supply (you can buy a converter from the 4 pin white molex for cheap) and sata cable that will plug into your motherboard its fool proof as you cant plug it into the wrong thing.

    1.I have 2 Hard Disk instal but BIOS not detect any HDD 2.I want to instal XP but is say not detect Hard Disk. 3.Sorry for my englesh.


    HDD2 implies there must already be an HDD1 in the system, unless the number refers to either the ATA-133 or the SATA connections.

    If you are using the ATA-133 (parallel IDE) connection for your hard drives, make sure that either both drives have their jumpers set to "CS" or "Cable Select", or one drive is set to "Master" and the other to "Slave". For a single drive, set it to "Master" or switch to the other connector on the cable if you prefer "cable select". (The connector on one end farther away from the other two connectors must go to the motherboard to use "cable select".) Otherwise only one drive will be recognized.

    Check the power and data cables to make sure they are properly installed - on some drives it is possible to put the data cable on backwards, but it won't work. The colored wire on the edge of the ribbon cable should be next to the power connector. Also, sometimes the wires work loose from the contact forks inside the connectors. If you think this is the case, run your finger across the cable next to the connector with light pressure to make sure all of the wires are pushed down into the forks.

    If you are using the Serial ATA connections, make sure both the SATA cables and power connectors are properly seated.

    If you still cannot see the drive in the BIOS, it may be defective, or the motherboard may have a problem with the drive interface electronics (this is much less likely than a bad hard drive).

    Once you have both drives recognized, you should be able to partition and format them as needed before you install your operating system.

    My samsung 40 gb hdd not detectin inany computer after new installation


    Is your hard drive a SATA (Serial ATA, a thin cable) or IDE (a fat, usually gray cable)?

    If your hard drive is a SATA, be sure that the both the power and data cables are securely connected to the hard drive (and data to the motherboard). Then go into your BIOS and make sure your hard drive is seen by the motherboard. It should read a model number similar to that of the model indicated on the hard drive label.

    If your hard drive is an IDE, make sure you've selected the CS (cable select) mode on the hard drive using the correct jumper setting. It should be displayed on the label using a small diagram. If it isn't, you can use the Samsung HDD Jumper Settings page to check the settings. Also be sure the cables are secured, as IDE cables can be difficult to fully connect. If this is the case, try using just the hard drive on its own without any other IDE/SATA devices connected, and see if your motherboard detects it.

    Try different cables for either type to make sure it's not just the cables that are causing the issue.

    If all the above have been tried and your computer still cannot see the hard drive, you may have a faulty hard drive, motherboard or power supply. Try using your hard drive in a different computer, if it still fails to be recognized, you'll need to replace your drive. If it is recognized, your motherboard or power supply may be at fault. Try a different power supply. If that doesn't work your motherboard may be the issue.

    Best of luck.

    ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


    Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.
