Question about Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L Motherboard

1 Answer

During initial configuration and build of the system, when the system tries to boot it recognizes the IDE hard drive but places it on channel 4. That's as far as it gets, it will not boot into the operating system. I only have the IDE hard drive connected to the motherboard, the graphics card, and 4G of ram. I am, however, able to get into the BIOS and change the settings if I want to.

Try changing the settings on the BIOS, like drive configuration and boot sequence/priority. also check the jumper on the OS HDD and make sure that it is on Master.

You hard drive is missing from the system. Just does not recognize it.
Remove the hard drive and reseat (reconnect). Check BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Might be F2 key. Verify BIOS recognizes the drive. It must be listed! There is no going forward if it's not. Check boot order and make internal hard drive first. Save and restart.

Bootmgr is mising/cant install win 7 on seagate HDD configuration problem


There are a number of possible causes for BOOTMGR errors, including the most common "BOOTMGR is missing" error message.

The most common reasons for BOOTMGR errors include corrupt and misconfigured files, hard drive and operating system upgrade issues, corrupt hard drive sectors an outdated BIOS and damaged or loose IDE cables

Anothe reason you might see BOOTMGR errors is if your PC is trying to boott from a hard drive or flash drive that is not properly configured to be booted from. In other words, it's trying to boot from a non-bootable source. This also would apply to media on an optical drive or floppy drive that you're trying to boot from.


make sure there are no disks in cd floppy usb drives

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty

computers need data and power to travel through every working device and to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also make sure you have set it boot from you hard drive in BIOS

hope this helps

ASUS K8S-MX Motherboard, but when I connect IDE


How were the partitions created on the SATA? Are they RAID configured from the other system? Does the new motherboard have the same support for your HD as the other system? Check the setup in the BIOS screen on both systems to make them identical as much as you can. According to Tom's Hardware: "In the SATA port configuration place you have up to four "mode" choices: IDE (or PATA) Emulation, native SATA, AHCI, or RAID." Check this section.

Motherboard is not recognizing my hard drive during boot process


It's probably the jumper settings on the hard drive. You can try cable select but I usually prefer just setting it as a master. Let me know if that works.

My pc will not load up with windows xp eventually got into the bios page & found the hard drive didnt show up as been identified


Read this whole post you might want to try the last paragraph first.

Take your hard drive out of your computer. In another system configure that hard drive as a master using the jumpers on the back of the drive the configuration should be on the drive itself although it is sometimes obscured.

Set your drive as a slave, again with the jumpers. Install your hard drive and boot the system up.

If the other system does not boot up or if it boots up and cannot detect your hard drive or your hard drive appears empty it is bad. You have to replace it.

If you are successful in seeing with folders, remove the cmos battery from your system for 30 seconds then reinstall and boot it up. This will place your bios to factory defaults and it may detect it.
