It is very likely that your motherboard is not capable of handling large HDDs. Too bad, friend. Use a smaller one, or may be two of them.

This board is a fairly new board withe serial ATA so I would imagine it should be able to handle a 160 GB hard drive. Check your connections to the hard drive and make sure they are fully seated. Also make sure the power connector going to the drive is fully inserted and working. If you have another serial ATA cable swap it out maybe the one installed is defective. Make sure the serial ATA function is activated in the BIOS and that it is listed on the boot menu. If the hard drive is brand new you may have to create a partition on the hard drive in DOS in order for it to be recognized by the BIOS. You may have to make a boot disc on another computer and run the DOS program to create a partition on the drive and then format the drive.

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

Any sata hdd can't dected by the mother board but any sata dvd dected by the mother board. what kind of procedure i followed now?


Your motherboard CAN detect a SATA device.
Your motherboard DOES detect your SATA optical device.
Your motherboard does NOT detect your SATA disk-drive.

This suggests that your disk-drive is "dead".
Exercise the WARRANTY on it, to get it repaired/replaced.
Or, if the warranty has EXPIRED, purchase a new SATA disk-drive.

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.
