Re: I cant install my hdd sata

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.

Hi there
VIA K8M800 is an AMD platform motherboard and should pick up the sata drive. Connect the drive to the motheboard, make sure that both leads are connected, go into the bios and set the bios to default settings, hit F10, save and exit, the machine will restart, go back into the bios and check to make sure its been picked up by the system.
post back if you need any more help

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD

You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.
