    Are you sure it does not support SATA?
    http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=JB... This is the motherboard, and the site says it 4 SATA II connectors:/ So I'm a bit confused.

    I am going to make myself sound stupid, but I went through the specs and no your motherboard does not support sata. It is only ATA support. I was in a hurry when I submitted that solution in. I am sorry.

How can I install toshiba sata drivers when Win7 64 bit is installing?


Look in the bios setting and see if the 500g drive is listed under the advanced tab. Then make sure the 500g drive is first choice for looking for the boot disk. Have your os disk in then save and exit.

Motherboard : ASUS P5GV-TMX Which hard disks does this motherboard support? It came with sata-I hard disk. Recently i bought a sata-II hard disk bt it is giving some problems..to be specific on windows it...


Yes, it can be causing a problem. You have 2 hard drives that are working at 2 very different speeds. The computer is having to do a translation and adjust rates of transfer between them on top of having to do the read and writes between them. Will SATA II will be backwards compatible to SATA I it won't work the other way. If you have to keep these drives, I would make the SATA II Drive the primary and SATA I drive the secondary on a different channel if possible. The SATA II drive is teh faster drive and should be your main.

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.

Sata hdd not detected


Yes, go into the bios and make sure that SATA is turned on. Sometimes with motherboards that have two ide controllers the SATA is turned off by default. Also another thing to check is whether the motherboard is SATA I or SATA II. If it is SATA I then change the jumper on the hard drive to peg back to SATA I. Your new hard drive is SATA II and the motherboard may not support it.

I have a new 8ogb sataII Exelstor hardisk which i


Windows XP does -not- have native SATA support and therefore will not recognize a SATA drive without first installing 3rd party drivers.
To go around this problem without installing drivers check your BIOS. There might be something in there where the bios will emulate an IDE controller.

If not, you'll need a floppy and the sata drivers. A flash drive will also do if the motherboard bios supports legacy USB. To find the drivers, simply go to the motherboards manufacturers website.

P4VM800 SATA HDD Problem Plz Help me!!!


Your P4VM800 won't detect a SATA II (3 GB/s) drive, only a SATA I (1.5 GB/s). You basically have 2 options:
1. if you have a friend or colleague with a machine that supports SATA II, install the disk in that machine and us the manufacturer's utility to set the SATA to 1.5 GB/s (Seagate/Maxtor disks, but only these do have a jumper to do the job but SATA is in other respects jumperless). Then you can reinstall the disk in your machine.

2. Buy a host adapter card for SATA II and install it in a free slot in your machine - but may be better to put the money towards a new motherboard.

PCI Card for SATA I VS SATA II


There are many PCI SATA controller cards out there. Just know that the SATA will not run at the SATA II standard. This is because you're motherboard may not support the bus speed for the SATA II or SATA I. If you current motherboard does not have a SATA port built on it, than your not going to see the speed the drive is able to run. Click this link (a Google search for PCI SATA II controller cards). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=PCI+SATA+II+controller+cards&btnG=Search

Watch out for PCI-X. This is not the same as a PCI slot.
PCI-X slots are only found on motherboards that have SATA I & SATA II slots on them. These PCI-X slots are the smaller SATA slots found inbetween PCI-Express sloted boards.
Promise controller cards make some of the best controller cards on the market.

SATA II HDD instaling on ASUS P5LD2


No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3
