Foxconn 945G7MA-8KS2H IDE BIOS problems

I have just done an apgrade using the foxconn 945G7MA-8KS2H motherboard. I have installed my super ata hard drive on IDE1 (actually tried 3 of them) and a cd drive on IDE2 (again 3 different drives) the system seems to only be able to register a drive on one channel at a time or both on one? After a week of tyring i sent it back at the suppliers request, only to get the same board back?? with the same problem?? I had tried a bios upgrade that they sent me by email but without any luck. Is there anything I'm obviously missing before I phone them back and look stupid?

    Got the board working by installing the raid driver. Why this should make a difference I'm still not sure but it worked!! Happy now my PC up and running again!!

Are you using a 80 pin super ata cable or a old 40 pin?. Have you tried different jumpers on the drive`s slave/mater/cable select?. Have you made sure that all the channels are turned on in the bios?. Make sure they are all set to auto. I know you probable checked all these things already. But just wanted to make sure that you didn't over look some thing simple.

What is the correct Integrated Peripherals setting for PATA/SATA with a IDE hard drive on Primary IDE channel as primary system drive, CD Burner on Secondary IDE channel and a SATA DVD Burner on a SATA...


Integrated Peripherals Menu

1) USB Controller -> Enabled
2) USB Device Legacy Support -> Keyboard + Mouse

3) Use the Down Arrow, and highlight ->
On-Chip IDE Configuration. Press the Enter key.

On-Chip ATA(s) Operate Mode - > Native
ATA Configuration -> P-ATA + S-ATA
S-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Keep Enabled -> Yes
P-ATA Channel Selection -> Both
CombinedModeOption -> P-ATA 1st Channel
S-ATA Ports Definition -> P0-3rd
Configure S-ATA as RAID -> NO

4) C.S.A Gigabit Ethernet -> Auto
5) Onboard 1394 Device -> Enabled
6) Onboard Promise IDE -> Disabled
7) AC97 Audio -> Enabled
8) Set Super I/O -> Leave Alone

However let's not cut hairs here.
MAIN thing you need to do F-I-R-S-T, is to write down the settings as they are, BEFORE making changes.

In case a mistake is made, you can go back into BIOS Setup - Integrated Peripherals, and change the settings back to the way they were originally.
This way you can at least use the IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive, with no SATA optical drive.

Then steam under your collar, find someone who knows more, than Ol' Joe.
(Better to have you ********** at me, than leave you with a non-working computer)

Don't forget to Save Changes, or it will be like you have done nothing at all.
(Need the User Manual for that mobo? Post back in a Comment)

Foxconn 945G7MA-8EKRS2 Motherboard will not post with pentium d cpu ,i have even updated with the lates bios flash,


Good day,
According to Intel 945G chipset supports Celeron D up to Core2Duo. Intel Gigabyte's 945 DS3 even supports up to Core2Quad. GByte Foxconn has 3 mobo bios from there site. Foxconn
According to their date: Latest to oldest
4BFF1P56 No Version 4BFF1P40
Have you tried installing the no version bios? In my experience some latest bios have some problems with other devices so try to use the no version bios. or try a different mobo bios with the same chipset from Foxconn. below are two foxconn mobo models i can't see the difference.
945G7MA-8EKRS2 945G7MA-8EKRS2H
Update at your own risk..
hope this helps, thanks for posting.

Problem ide


Hi gustabir,
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Mike
