Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
go into the BIOS setup and find settings for SATA operation or something similar. the available options should be 1. Native SATA/IDE 2. AHCI supported 3. RAID windows xp was installed with SATA support but requires special drivers for AHCI or RAID, so you should set your computer's SATA operation to native or IDE in order to solve the problem. Additional tip: next time you manage to boot to windows, boot to safe mode (boot while pressing F8), so you can review if all the drivers are well installed in device manager.
Windows will not see them because you need to download the SATA drivers for the motherboard from the Asus site.
Download and install to a floppy or USB (advise the latter) Install windows,and you will get a "press f6 if you want to install a raid device ..." Press F6 and hopefully, windows will find the drivers, highlight the ones it wants.. the rest should be simple
To enable sata port press Delete Key when computer Starts. U will get BIOS menu. On there the Main settings window the second last option is to enable sata option. If u want to install widows OS (XP,2000, Server edition) **** Driver CD and go to RAID folder there u get a driver ( shown as Floppy drive Image). Incerte Floppy in drive and click that icon. And click Extract. Then incert the OS CD. On starting of instalition u will get a option press F6 to install Raid Disk. Press F6. On Bitween instalition u will get a option to install this Raid. ( With out this RAID u cant install XP or Other vartions of windows in ur sata hard drive)
Hi rafiqbrush, let me go over a few things for the P5B MB. There is a total of 5 serial ATA SATA drive ports on the board & one ATA IDE/PATA port. The 4 main SATA ports are numbered, 1 - 4. Your primary SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 1. Your second SATA drive must be connected to SATA port 3. See page 2-26 in your manual. All SATA drives are seen as master drives. Once the two SATA drives are connected (As per manual), boot to the bios main menu. At the main bios menu make sure your bios shows both SATA drives. Than go to the bios title "Boot". Make sure your primary SATA drive 1 is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the bios. (SATA drive 1 must have windows installed on it).

Good luck rafiqbrush! Thank you for using fixya. Mike
Hi LP, I’ am very familiar with ASUS motherboards. I am thinking you have posted two questions or more referring to the, ASUS K8V-MX board. When you sign into you're FixYa account you than need to click on you're profile. Within you're profiles are the questions you have posted. Click that question to add or see the expert's answer. If you need another question (about the same item) re-post within that same question. You can even copy the link to an older post & past that link into you're next question. (Than I can read you're last question & my responce). LP you have me all mixed up. I'll answer the question you have posted above. In the future please provide you're old post so I understand better.
There is nothing wrong with IDE 250GB drive or the SATA drive. The problem you are haveing is setting the correct settings.
The ASUS K8V-MX can support two serial ATA SATA drives. The SATA drive's can only run at 1.0 version. 1.5GB transfer speed & not SATA II, the 3.0GB speed.
How to setup the SATA drive? Please disconnect any other drives (IDE) & a second SATA drive that may be connected to the system. Except the CDROM drive. Using you're manual the SATA drive should be connected to SATA1 port. Page 1-24 in you're manual. Put you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive & boot the PC. You will see, Press any key to boot from CD... (press any key on your keyboard). Windows will start to install. Durring installation of windows the system will restart. You will again see, Press any key to boot from CD... (DO Nothing)! Just allow windows to conintue on its own. Windows will continue to install it's self. This will happed once again, & again do nothing. Windows will finish installing it's self. After windows has finished, load the ASUS CD into you're CD-ROM drive & install it's driver software. Restart the PC. You must register windows. Do so. Than update windows through windows update service. (This will take some time to complete). (Do not install service pack 3). If you have an IDE drive 250GB in size & you installed windows on it. You must erase the drive or it will conflict with you're new installation on the SATA drive. To do this, look on the IDE drive & you will find a large white sticker. Printed on there is instructions of how to set the drive pin. Set the drive up as a slave drive. (This is only temporary). Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Connect the 250 IDE drive's power cable & data cable. Plug in the power cord to the PC & turn on the PC. Windows will load. Right click once on the start button & slide up to & left click on Explorer. Find the 250 IDE drive, it should be drive letter D or E. Right click the proper drive letter & format the drive. ( Do Not format, Local_Drive C:\ ). Once the format is complete, power down the PC by clicking on the start button & click turn off the computer. Once off, unplug the power cord. Change the pin on the 250GB IDE drive to Master with a slave. Take the 40GB drive & change it's pin so the 40GB drive is a slave. Connect the 250GB drive to the end of the IDE data cable & connect the 40GB drive to the next connector of the same IDE data cable. Re-check all power cables & data cables for good connections before closing the case. Plug the power cord in & power up the PC. Everything should run just fine. Setting the pin for you're IDE drive's can be very confusing. Click on the link below. This will give you an idea of how to set you're pin for a master drive, master with a slave drive. If you post the name ST****** of you're two drives I can post the correct pin locations from Seagate's web site. http://www.seagate.com/images/support/en/us/mxo_ata_jumpers.gif
Have more questions about this post? Good luck! Mike
GaRoMo, 2 things. One change the pin on the IDE to a slave. Two open your bios. Asus board press the delete key every two sceonds untill the bios main menu opends. Go to BOOT section & make sure you have the SATA drive to boot. Your IDE should not be listed. Thats it.
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.
Under many cases, the default settings for additional onboard SATA/RAID controller could have been set to [Disabled] when delivered.This will cause the controller to stop its function completely. Suggestion: Please refer to your user’s manual for detailed description on how to enable onboard SATA/RAID controller via adjusting jumper or BIOS settings. Clean SATA cable with a couple cotton sticks lightly dipped into alcohol. If you sitll can not see the SATA drive from within the bios your onboard SATA/RAID controller is defective. Contact Asus tech M-F eastern time at: 812-282-2787. Tech will assign you a case number. Tech will than connect you to the RMA department for replacment/repair.
