How to install sata hdd for mother board asrock m266a


The drive installs physically like any any hard drive. The problem is that this motherboard does not support the SATA protocol. You would need to get an expansion PCI card SATA controller. Even then, since the motherboard BIOS is not set up for SATA, you would not be able to use the SATA drive(s) as the boot device. Also, you would need a Molex to SATA power adapter for your power supply since the SATA power connector is different. And you would need a SATA data cable if the expansion card does not come with one.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 which is running windows xp pro. I have 2 Gigs of memory, the computer runs ok, but I'm receiving info from scans that my HDD Pata is about to go,I'd like to change


Well, you will want to open up the side of your computer and see if there are SATA ports on the motherboard. They look like this:

10_25_2012_6_50_53_pm.jpg
Though they may not be blue.

If there are SATA ports on your board, you are in good shape. Just buy any SATA hard drive (SATA2 and SATA3 are backwards compatible) and connect it with the SATA connector and a SATA power connector from the power supply. Don't be afraid, these can only plug in one way without forcing them and only SATA plugs will fit.

After that, there are a variety of drive cloning programs you can use to clone your current hard drive onto another so that you don't lose anything.

If you don't have SATA plugs on your motherboard, it is easily remedied. You can buy a PCI SATA card for quite a reasonable price like this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124024

You will also probably need a small adapter like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812189121
To convert a molex plug into a SATA power plug.

After you plug in the card and the new hard drive, run the driver CD for the SATA add-in card and then run a cloning program.

I have a 81845gvm-rz gigabyte motherboard with internal HDD of 40GB capacity, now i am looking upgrade my internal HDD some where near 500gb is it possbile doing it. i need more free space on my c:\ drive...


The new harddrive technology you refer to is SATA.

A SATA power cable is used,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

,and a SATA Data cable is used,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

To the upper right of the page shows a SATA Data cable connector, on the end of a SATA Data cable.
Below it is an example of a SATA header on the motherboard. Color does Not matter.

The SATA power cable connector has 15 pins. The SATA Data cable connector has 7 pins. Both connectors use an L shape on the inside, to line up the connection.

The type of older Harddrive technology you are using now is IDE.
It is also known as PATA.
Uses a 40-pin flat ribbon cable for the Data cable. (Note* Only 39 pins are used. One hole is blocked off, or has no wire )

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA#IDE_and_ATA-1

The Gigabyte GA-81845GVM-RZ motherboard's Storage Controller Type support is IDE, [ DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) X 2 ],

http://www.dealtime.com/Gigabyte-Gigabyte-Technology-i845GVup-to-2GB-DDRDIMM-3DDR/info?tab=specs

There are no SATA headers on the motherboard,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Gigabyte-GA-8I845GVM-RZ-Motherboard-DHL-UPS-3-8-DAY-/390337518730?_trksid=p4340.m185&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC.NPJS%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUA%26otn%3D5%26pmod%3D180645618978%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D5166955561701266148

HOWEVER,....all is not lost. You can install a SATA Adapter Card in an unused PCI (White long slot), and use a SATA harddrive.

Example of a SATA Adapter Card,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329305&CatId=1455

With the above SATA Adapter Card model, you will have 4 internal SATA headers. They are on the adapter card.

[ Also advise maxing out the Ram Memory, and using the best Intel Pentium 4, Socket 478 processor, that you can obtain.
The CPU Support Chart is available on the Gigabyte Support main page]

How can I use a SATA HDD in a 7NF-RZ motherboard? What cables/adapters are required?


Hey there. To install SATA devices on any motherboard follow these steps:
1- Make sure your Motherboard supports SATA, a 7NF-RZ works fine.

2- Install the HDD on your case, usually you have to screw it in or if you have a newer case you can lock it in place with a latch.(The SATA slots on a case are usually above the optical drive slots).

3-If you have another HDD already installed, and you don't want the new HDD to have system files, make sure it's designation is set to Slave. To do this, remove the jumper on the HDD pins(a white plastic connector) with tweezers, and, according to your HDD specifications, move it up or down to Slave designation.

4-Use a SATA cable from your Power Supply and connect it to the HDD, then, use a SATA adaptor cable which should have come with your HDD and connect it to the HDD, then to your Motherboard SATA adaptor(these vary from motherboard to another, so use your Manual to specify where it is).

5-Boot up your computer, and enter BIOS. Usually press either F2,F5,F12 or Esc. After that go to Auto-Detect drivers. When you're done, Save & Exit.

You should have successfully installed your new HDD!

How Do I exactly make a 500gb sata hdd work with this p4m266a ndmx motherboard? It doesn't appear to have a sata port and using the sata compatible cable did not help. Thanks


Hello,

if your motherboard does not have SATA, purchase a SATA - PCI card, they cost something to the direction of 10 to 20 $ and give you 2 to 4 or more SATA ports.

I have a P4V533-MX Motherboard. i will like to know if that support a sata of 1 tb


I looked up the motherboard on the ASUS website. It does not appear to support SATA drives by default. You can purchase an add on card that would allow the use of SATA drives but it does not appear to have any connectors for SATA.

Connecting sata hdd on 845ge


Directly you can't, the chipset on that motherboard doesn't support SATA. You will have to buy a PCI SATA card and plug the disk in it.

SATA


Well if your motherboard doesn't have onboard SATA adapters, then you must buy a PCI add-on card or a converter to go from SATA down to IDE. Pretty cheap at web sites like Newegg or Mwave.
