Try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

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!

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.

I can't get Vista Ultimate set up to recognize my WD 1TB HDD in a new build. Is this a software problem or problem with the HDD. I get the short beep at BIOS start up so I don't think its with the...


Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.

Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.

Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.

New HDD Not Recognized by Computer

This occurs when the HDD is not “Initialized” by the disc management system in Windows. If you do not have software that came with HDD or the HDD is a secondary drive for backup and is not to be used as an initial boot device, then when you installed the drive it did not go through the necessary steps or Windows simply failed to do it’s job. In this case, connect the drive as you normally would, go to the control panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Look in the left Pane, scroll down and click on Disk Management.
Your drives will be listed here, even if they are not initialized. Look below the top pane and find the disk that is listed without a drive letter. If you look at where the drive is named, it will also say “offline”. Right click in this area that says “offline” and click on “Initialize”. The system will ask a few questions, just click ok to what it asks, this will initialize the disk and you can then partition the new drive to how you want it set up.

I cannot configure a SATA RAID 1 to mirror two WD HDD 1 TB


You sure you installed the ASUS RAID drivers when you installed Windows? Ya need to get the drivers off the ASUS disk, transfer them to a floppy, hit F6 when windows tells you to (during windows install...you only have a second or 2 to see the message!)) and use the floppy to install them. Might take a few tries to get it right.

Connecting an IDE HDD to a SATA port using an IDE to SATA converter


Not complete product...need to buy additional adapter for IDE to SATA power source.
IDE drive will have to have the power source hooked up as well as the adaptor hooked up.
Installing the adaptor only will not work. Your computer should have the 4 pin plug for the power to the IDE drive, other wise you will have to buy another adaptor.

Flashing Toshiba satellite 1800-S204


Hi

You query did not give any clues abt the PC/Motherboard and its BIOS revision.

That said if the PC/BIOS will not "see" the HDD then its is unlikely a cause of a virus.

Some old motherboards can't recognise a HDD if its size is more than 137GB. Some older motherboard also require than you set the HDD jumper correctly (Master or Slave).

At this stage, i am assuming the HDD in question is PATA or IDE (Old Spec). If the HDD is SATA (New Spec), then you will need a SATA port to connect the HDD. Ensure not to use both "old" molex power connector and "newer" SATA power connector together.

If the HDD is SATAII but the SATA spec for your motherboard is SATAI (initial spec), some motherboards and SATAII drives require that you jumper the HDD to allow it to work at the lower SATA speed.

If none of the above points apply try upgrading your system BIOS of the latest version. Also review the mortarboard's manual for more info.

Regards
Mike
