What kind of harddisk is suitable to use for this motherboard?

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Nurrani Binti Kuldip Singh Abdullah.

You may use a hard drive that supports either an IDE or SATA connection of any size up to about 1TB. A 250GB, 320GB or 500GB should do fine.

Take care!

My K8MM-V motherboard is not recognising any SATA hard drives.

Plz check your motherboard is support new generation SATA speed. May be the MSI K8MM-V 'll not support 3gbps speed drives. So you need to change the HDD speed to 1.5Gbps by changing the jumper setting of HDD (plz refer HDD manual)

I cant install windows in sata hdd for msi pm8m-v

Thank you for your question.

In this case, my opinion would be that the SATA Driver needs to be installed from floppy disc before the install of Windows. It is at the beginning of setup at the bottom of the screen in black writing on a grey background for Windows XP. It says "Press F6 if you need to install other drivers". This is your cue to press F6, the install will load drivers from there to enable the SATA on your motherboard.

If you do not have the motherboard discs, I have attached the link to the makers download page for your motherboard, you can obtain the SATA driver from here.

Good luck with your install.

Kind regards

The Bios of MSI PM8M can not recognize SATA HDD. Please tell me how I can make this Bios recognize SATA.

You must check if SATA is enable in your BIOS. Sometime there is jumper which prevent this.
