Re: Bios settings

On your motherboard there are sata slots, usually there are two or four of them, Locate which is sata1, sata2, sata3 and sata4...
Connect them at sata2 and sata3, because sata1 is for the harddisk... The computer should automatically set things up right for you and also with the OS.

Hope this helps.

Re: Bios settings

At bios settings choose auto detect for secondary master and secondary slave.

one burner must be master and the other one is slave jumper settings. all burners must be place at secondary drives.

Where can i find the bios boot screen?

Turn the computer on.
When you see the "Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP" message, press the 'DEL' key.

Depending on which BIOS you have, and what storage-controller you have, your storage-controller may be listed -- especially if a disk-drive is attached to the storage-controller.

Or, for some storage-controllers, do *NOT* press the 'DEL' key. Instead, wait for the "Press CTRL-A to enter..." for some SCSI storage-controllers.

Without more details about your manufacturer and type of storage-controller (SATA? SCSI?) it's impossible to give more-specific advice.

Motherboard has two built-in Sata connectors. after installing controller I can either use the onboard connectore or the controller but not both.

Check the BIOS settings. You may want to try AHCI settings or RAID settings and turn off LEGACY settings. The ports are controlled by the board itself, which is handled by the BIOS. So, the best place to start is there.

Doesn't recognize new SATA disk. Have checked that disk is goodand can be accessed with a USB controller. Also, the SATA card BIOS does come up but shows no device on either channel.

Check all your bios settings, make sure SATA is enabled. Also see if the drive can be installed on another machine.

Make sure your OS version can support SATA also.

Good Luck.

Booting Problem

Hi there.

You will need to open your BIOS settings, and change your boot sequence/priority so that it includes PCI cards. Save and exit, and see if it then boots.

If you need anymore help, or need me to clarify anything, I'll be happy to help.

Help me to install WinXP in a Gateway Laptop that came with SATA HDD

you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.

The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.

1 download and install nlite
2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files)
3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think.
4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.

this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by

My new HDD isnt showing up in my computor

What type of HDD is your new one? SATA, IDE?

Do you have any USB disk devices plugged in to your system? USB hard drive or flash stick or other SD cards? Remove them and try rebooting again. These can sometimes take precedence over your HDD and your system will not boot.
