Page 62 will show you to set up your sata harddrive. It looks like you set it to auto, and let the BIOS find it

Mobo doesn't recognize hdd


Your board shows serial ATA compatibility, I'm pretty sure the Seagate 1.5TB HDD is a serial ATA II device. These are not backwards compatible. Sorry. Hope this helps.

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED


Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

Untill i Put a Jumper on the HDD  limiting the SATA HDD to 1.5gig of OS instead of 3gig. Look at the Label of your HDD

BIOS PROBLEM


I don't think you have a problem with the BIOS version but more likely with the settings.
Please enter in the BIOS and be sure that under: main menu, ide configuration, Parallel ATA IDE controller is set up as Primary. Then you go under advance menu, Serial ATA IDE controller and be sure you don't have RAID.

Copy of the manual can be find here http://dlsvr.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock754/k8v_vm_ultra/e2476_k8v-vm_ultra.pdf

Let's start with this checks and then let me know.

Wd800jd sata hard drive not recognized in bios on boot up


Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
