Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Found something about IDE/ATA configuration. it's saying that if it's in enhanced - S-ATA mode it put the S-ATA and P-ATA in native mode. Should it be in native mode or is that the problem? Like i said i've messed with these options before and it didn't do much
also pls cool south bridge with install fan if it getting hot.

Drivers will not affect whether the drive shows up in BIOS or not.
Your BIOS should have a setting under the 'Advanced' section for IDE and or SATA. Usually this needs to be set to 'Enhanced' mode or 'SATA plus PATA' Check your jumper settings-The drive should be set to 'Master' (if it even has jumpers).Check the power lead to make sure the drive spins up. Try different power lead and different SATA cable. If possible, try the drive in another machine to make sure it isn't 'Bad out of the Box'
If the drive does not show up in BIOS its a hardware issue or BIOS setting .
Once it shows up in BIOS - you'll be good to go.

A stab in the dark. Sound like the MB BIOS expects and is written to have the OS on the IDE slot. After that I would add one SATA drive at a time to see if it matters and to see if one of the drives are causing the problem.

SOURCE: cannot pick up sata hdd
VIA K8M800 is an AMD platform motherboard and should pick up the sata drive. Connect the drive to the motheboard, make sure that both leads are connected, go into the bios and set the bios to default settings, hit F10, save and exit, the machine will restart, go back into the bios and check to make sure its been picked up by the system.
post back if you need any more help
Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

SOURCE: SATA PORT NOT WORKING
The universally accepted HDD is the IDE, why are you trying to make it with a SATA? With a IDE you will avoid all the troubles. Yes! SATArequires a change in the BIOS. We can help you do the change, if you know how to do it. Playing with BIOS can cause the entire MB to burn out and destroy itself.

I will advice you to exchange the HDD with someone or with brand new one as it seems to be problem with drivers of the sata.
