MSI RC410 - cannot detect Sata HDD

I have Intel 3.00 GHz/4 M cache on MSI RC 410 (A17173MS) motherboard, 1GB RAM and 80GB western digital SATA HDD. I have Windows XP on it. It was working fine for last 1 year. However one day suddenly bios took a long time to boot, like a bios is hang. Then after 2 minutes it went ahead but it was not able to detect my SATA harddisk. The disk has 2 partitions C and D My data is present on these partitions . I pressed F2 to enter the bios and there it shows "Not Installed" for the SATA drives. It is supposed to show my harddisk there but it is not showing. I replaced both the cables (Data and Power) but no use. I tried to use other SATA ports on motherboard, but still no use.i have also tried to my Sata HDD on another PC and I found it working normally, My motherboard is able to detect my DVD writer & IDE HDD on the same IDE port. Toggling this jumper has no effect in detecting the harddisk. Now also if I keep my SATA harddisk connected to system, then bios takes 2 minutes to go ahead then stopped not to find any HDD to boot from, If I remove the cables of SATA disk then bios immediately goes ahead.also I have tried IDE HDD and mother board can detect it normally, problem is in Sata only, Can somebody please help here ?

Hello samanozy ,
Some older motherboards will not support a too wide HDD whatever the interface.
Another point is to know if you have set the boot priorities in the BIOS . Your machine is maybe attempting to boot from the Sata drive .
Best regards ,

Can i install xp-sp3 without Sata driver on motherboard 'DG31PR'


You have a board with 4 SATA ports on it and a SATA HDD. The hardware detection routines will see this and load the SATA drivers. Why would you even want to try to set it up without them?
