How to change sata to ata in bios


If you want to install Windows XP or configure a RAID array, you may need to change the SATA type in BIOS. here I will introduce some method of SATA settings in BIOS. SATA HDD(hard disk) has been more porpular because of the hight transferring speed and simple installation. If you want to Install a Windows XP in SATA hard disk. we offen need a floppy disk to save the additional driver of SATA/RAID. but the floppy isn't too easy to find. So we can do another method, modify the SATA type to compatible IDE or ATA mode, etc.
Notes: If your computer has installed some operating systems. Changing SATA types may corrupt your systems or need to be repaired again. But when can I change the SATA type?
1. You are prepairing install a new operating systems, for commonly Windows XP. If Windows 7/Vista will be installed. you need nothing changed in BIOS unless the setting has been modified.
2. Or you want to install a RAID.
I will introduce how to install Windows XP at SATA HDD(hard disk) in the coming chapters, here we need to know how to change the SATA type in BIOS. At first we need to access BIOS, Here is my desktop BIOS, we can find the BIOS is from AWARD software.
201003290718324672.jpgIn my BIOS, the harddisk settings are in the line of integrated peripherals, different BIOS or different OEM menufactures may have different promise. you can try the Advanced BIOS features setting or Integrated peripherals, or system configuration, etc.
Locale to Integrated Peripherals and press enter, you may find the SATA configuration.
201004010308121905.jpgthe above screenshot is the SATA configuration position. There are two items about SATA controller, Onchip SATA controller and Onchip SATA Type, Notes: There may be one or more configurations about SATA, we only need to change the SATA Type. you should not close the SATA controller if you don't know what's will be happened.
Navagete to the Onchip SATA Type and press ENTER, we can find these selections: Native IDE, AHCI, RAID. If you want to install Windows XP, you may need to change to Native IDE(some called ATA) mode, when you finished installation, you can refresh your SATA drivers in Windows XP and change the SATA type to AHCI mode in BIOS again.
If you want to configure a raid array. set to RAID similarity. When finished settings, you should press enter to accept it, and save to CMOS before restart your computer. In my BIOS, I need to exit to the BIOS main menu at first and save it.
when the new status has been saved, you can press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart your computer, some OEM PCs may need to click the EXIT or Save to CMOS and Exit, the computer will be restart automatically.
Another example screenshot is my DELL notebook BIOS. DELL BIOS is not the same as the desktop BIOS, we can find the SATA operation behind the System Configuration. there are only three selections (Disabled, ATA, AHCI). If you want to install Windows XP, here need to be changed as ATA mode.
201004010308185104.jpg Notes: If you want to install operating systems, you may need to change the boot orderto boot from your CD/DVD drive.

Disable SATA in BIOS, well but there is no option in Bios to disable or enable SATA. Lately HP DV2000 comes with bios without this option (DV2000 - DV2680ee, I lost a lot of money and time with this...


You should not need to disable SATA as it is a way to interface with the hard drive. In the BIOS you can disable a hard drive to boot within the boot options.

Download SATA driver,here is the link

http://download.cnet.com/SATA-Driver-Intel-Ver-7-0-0-1020-zip/3000-2122_4-162224.html

Are you trying literally to open up your Laptop with a screw driver or something... or are you trying to install XP on a Vista pre-installed laptop... Here's the solution...
Go to the BIOS setup [press F8 on startup], & change the disk controller setting from AHCI to IDE. might worth the try. Some Laptops don't have option of SCSI or IDE. But there are SATA Enable/Disable option. Try disabling SATA. Make sure you have all the necessary drivers for your laptop before installing windows...
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem...

When i try to install windows xp sp2 it says "no hard disk detected" i also doesn't know how to use nlite.could u pls help me with a complete step by step method starting from nlite to completion of driver...


First of all, as this Notebook is installed with SATA Hard Drive, any retail version of windows XP will not be able to detect the Hard Drive because of which you are getting this kind of errors when trying to install XP.

However, to proceed with installing XP in your Notebook, I recommend you to disable the SATA Native Support option which will be present with Notebooks installed with Intel Processor and not with AMD Processor.

You can disable the SATA Native Support feature from the BIOS by following the instructions below :

Start or restart the notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to the BIOS setup window.

In this, go to the System Configuration tab where you will find the SATA Native Support.

Press Enter to select it when the option is hilighted and set the option to Disabled.

Now, press F10 key to Save the settings and exit the BIOS setup window.

By doing this, the Hard Drive in the Notebook will be detected as IDE Hard Drive and you should be able to install XP without any issues.

Please not down that the SATA Native Support option should be set to Disabled even after installing the Operating System in the Notebook.

However, I need to have the Product Number of the Notebook wich can be found printed on a white sticker pasted at the bottom of the Notebook indicated wit P/N using which I can find the Hadware specifications of the Notebook and provide the appropriate drivers.
