SOURCE: NI8 SATA DVD Drive compatability

You must have added the SATA drive after setting up the IDE. If both drives are using the same os this will not function. Ony one drive can have the os on it. All SATA's are seen as a master.
To correct this problem, disconnect the IDE drive. Hook up the SATA drive. Again if the SATA has the os on it everything will run. Change the jumper on the IDE and set it as a slave. Hook the IDE up. Enter the bios & do not list the IDE in the boot to section. Problem solved. While in windows, format the IDE drive.
You do not want windows thinking you want a dual boot system.
So you understand, in the bios -boot settings this is how things should be listed.
Boot device 1 Sony Optiarc DVD drive
Boot device 2 WD raptor SATA, In-stall your os to this drive

SOURCE: what is the maximum size of hdd to used with abit kv7

Good day sir/maam, yes you can use a 1 TB HDD, get the SATA version depending on the bios but im not sure it be compatible with SATA1 on your motherboard, any new hard disk canor cant be read by any old motherboard, you may have problems with SATA versions, there are 3 versions, but the problem is the response of the hard disk. The rule of thumb, fast motherboards, for large hard disk, because it can access large amount of data very fast usually they are SATA3. So slow motherboards with large hard disk is kinda slow, you be bored. I suggest you stick on the recommended hard disk. If you want extra storage, get 3 hard disk and daisy chained them as master/slave.

Abit kv7 hangs at memory speed


Go into the bios and use the "set bios to default" option
There is another that is used for more speed orientated setting but at this point fo not use it.

Also check the memory settings them selves and set them for auto where possible

If you mean that it hangs when counting the memory then try the ESC key as it is booting to get past the memory check and then use DEL to get into bios

775Dual-880 Pro cannot detect SATA HDD 320gb


if you bought this board brand new, take it back and tell them the sata controllers in the bois are not sufficent and get one that is. If you got it second hand then you will need to update or flash the bios to the latest version. see if that works and the drive is recognised. if it is recognised via flash/update you may still run into problems if you try to install XP
good luck and regards

New Hard drive xp install


If your hard drive is SATA and your windows disk does not have SATA drivers on it it will not find the hard drive this is your problem
http://driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/
Go to the above site and download "driverpack mass storage" and slipstream into your windows CD.
I have done this with one windows install disk that could not find disk then it worked perfectly

Loading xp home edition


I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.
