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)

Hi, according to your mobo manual it supports SATA1/SATA2 hard drives so it's recommended to update BIOS, the latest I found it has release date 2006-06-29, you can find it in the folllowing link: Support For K8MM MSI Global

Will K8MM-V MS-7142 Motherboard supports 500GB/250GB Sata 3(6gbps) Hard disk, by setting to 1.5gbps speed ?


The designers of SATA aimed for backward and forwardforward compatibility with future revisions of the SATA standard.[citation needed] To prevent interoperability problems that could occur when next generation SATA drives are installed on motherboards with legacy standard SATA 1.5 Gbit/s motherboard host controllers, many manufacturers have made it easy to switch those newer drives to the previous standard's mode. For example, Seagate/Maxtor has added a user-accessible jumper-switch, known as the Force 150, to enable the drive to be switched between 1.5 Gbit/s and 3 Gbit/s operation. Western Digital uses a jumper setting called OPT1 Enabled to force 1.5 Gbit/s data transfer speed (OPT1 is enabled by putting the jumper on pins 5 & 6). Samsung drives can be switched to 1.5 Gbit/s mode using software that may be downloaded from the manufacturer's website. Upgrading a Samsung drive in this manner requires the temporary use of a SATA-2 (SATA 3.0 Gbit/s) controller while programming the drive.

When I install Windows XP a sign tells me that finds no drive and cancel the installation


assume you are using a SATA hard drive?

Either the Hard drive is damaged (you can check this by accessing the BIOS at start up and seeing if it recognises the hard drive) or more likely, you have a SATA drive that you need the driver for. You can get this from the MSI site in the motherboard downloads section. You need to save this driver to a floppy or usb and when installing windows, and the prompt comes up to "if you have any scsi controllers..."... press F6 now" click F6 and let it find the sata controller, it should then install

Also check the condition of the sata cable..

Either the motherboard has SATA connectors (and the power-supply has SATA power-connectors), or you can purchase a PCI add-in card, to add a SATA interface.

Your motherboard can connect up to 2 serial ATA devices and for this reason, it can support a 500GB sata hard drive.

I am not able to detect sata hard disk in msi mother board


Your model K8MM-V motherboard does not have a SATA controller only IDE disk controllers and therefore it cannot detect a SATA hard drive.
To install a SATA hard drive on this motherboard you need to purchase a PCI SATA disk controller and install it on the PCI expansion slot and then attach the SATA hard disk to this SATA controller.

SATA 2 HDD


I think, one possible way is to manually force sata 2 (there is no such thing as sata 2) to sata 1 by using a jumper for the hard drive. For exact details, please consult the sticker on the hdd or contact the hdd manufacturer for firmware updates. And please report back, especially if it's a success. (Damn, the VT8237)
