How to detect sata hard drive P4M800-M7 Motherboard the sata hard drive can't detect

Hi fleetpio,

1. How to detect sata HD?- I am assuming that you have fixed the hardware part. During POST (Power On Self Test) press delete key inyour keyboard.


2. After pressing delete, a menu like the image above will appear. use arrow key to navigate, enter to select, +/- to modify values, Esc to exit current menu and F10 to save settings. proceed to Features Setup and press enter.


3. Another menu will appear like the image shown above, on the Onboard SATA-IDE from IDE change it to SATA-IDE.

4. Press F10, Saves the current configuration and exit setup.

5. To verify if the SATA hard drive has been detected, look on your POST if the HD appears. If the full screen logo appears repeat Step1 proceed to Standard CMOS Setup, check if youre HD appears.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My computer says there is no disk or please insert disk

disk, are you referring to a cd/dvd disc or are you reffering to a harddrive disk??? If you are reffering to a harddrive disk, then your hard drive is either damaged/ or inproper loose connection or if it s usb/network disk, make sure it is plugged or configuration is changed in the bios menu. If this is a harddrive disk, and after POST or startup, it is giving you this error message, then before we pressume it being damged, check in your bios menu to see if the bios reconized the hard drive disk, if not, your hard drive is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Failure to recognize sata drive

I recently encountered a similar problem, which was down to a failed component on the drive PCB. Does the SATA drive work on other systems. A good troubleshooting device to purchase is a SATA/USB adapter which allows you to power an external SATA device and connect it direct to a USB port.

I am using a single SATA II Drive in a new system, GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, AMD 790X & SB750 chipsets. I know I can let the SATA II be a "Native IDE" but isn't that loosing any benefit of the SATA II...

The "Native IDE" mode causes the motherboard to "report" to the Operating System that the installed SATA drive is an IDE drive, rather than reporting "no IDE drives installed", and then requiring the Operating System to load a SATA device-driver to interface with the SATA drive.

Using RAID to "mirror" your hard-drive is a very-cool way to provide a "real-time" and "up-to-date" backup.

Should one of your drives suddenly "die", the other will continue to work, and you can buy another hard-drive, re-establish the "mirroring", and continue to work productively -- no fiddling with offline/stale backups.

I am tring to install win XP with sata drive and

Make sure it is listed in your system CMOS before starting the XP install. Make sure cables are correct, and the drives are not turned off in CMOS. Some setup will allow you to set the drive types to AUTO, so you can also try that.

Need to boot from SATA drive

If you only have one SATA drive, you do not need to have the RAID setting turned on in CMOS. RAID is only for 2 or more SATA or SCSI drives. Shut that off and try again.

I can't use HDD sata on mainboard ASUS P5RD1-VM

Things need to be turned on in your bios patrohi. This is why windows didn't boot to the SATA. You need to use your manual & make sure the, Serial ATA Controller is [Enabled]
Within the Advanved menue under SouthBridge Configuration.
At the Main menue the SATA drive should be listed.
Boot settings need to change as well. At Boot Settings Configurations. Make sure your SATA drive is listed.
Boot order should list like, Floppy 1st, CDROM 2nd, SATA 3rd. The SATA will not list as a SATA but the model number of the SATA drive. Once all these settings are set save & exit. Your drive should show up for work & the windows CD should load.
