Yes you can in case if it doesn't detect the entire drive try partitioning the drive below 137gb for each partition so that you can use the entire HDD and all of it can get recognised.

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device)
Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel.
Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed).

Hi,
If you know all drivers are installed correctly and you still can't get onto the internet, then
I think you may have corrupt winsock files. Contact your ISP . They should be able to help you.

SOURCE: how much total Hard Disk capasity supported by my motherboard

I dont see any limitations listed for the chipset used on this board. This would indicate that its new enough to use with most current drives.

It looks like this will take up to 2 Sata drives and can be run in raid as well. The newer Sata drives should work with the controller but you will not get the full speed the newer drives give since the controller is an ata 150.

Here is a link to the page with all the specs for your board.:

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=&cat3_no=&prod_no=173

Hope this helps...

D945gtp how to connect cd-rom hardware


1) IDE {PATA} DVD burner drive:

For an IDE { PATA } DVD burner, connect to the 40-pin IDE header on the motherboard. This is located to the right side of the Ram Memory slots.
It is the longer header that has 40 contact pins. {39 actually}

( The shorter connector on the motherboard is for a Floppy Drive.
{34 pins} It is above the IDE 40-pin connector )

NOTE*
The IDE connector on the motherboard should be keyed. Should have a cutout on one side. This is so the Number 1 pin in the flat IDE ribbon cable, will line up with Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector.

Some flat IDE ribbon cables, do not have a Locating Lug on the connector. (Small rectangular 'bump')

Number 1 pin on the IDE ribbon cable will be on the side that has a faint RED stripe on it.

Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector is at the Bottom, with the motherboard installed.

The side of the flat ribbon IDE cable that has the faint red stripe on it, goes DOWN, when installed in the motherboard connector.

If the DVD drive does not have a cutout for it's circuit board, the faint red stripe of the flat ribbon IDE cable, goes towards the power cable connection.

2) SATA DVD burner drive:
You have 4 Serial ATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard.
Your SATA harddrive should be plugged into the SATA1 header.

You can choose any open available SATA header, to plug your SATA DVD burner drive into.
BIOS will see it once you turn the computer on.

3) If you somehow have been using an IDE {PATA} harddrive, and have it connected to your IDE connector on the motherboard, you SHOULD not use a DVD drive on that flat IDE ribbon cable, also.

BIOS has to find which device has the Operating System on it, (Windows), and then hand the computer over to the Operating System.

To state again, BIOS will look at both devices connected to that flat ribbon cable. The Harddrive, and the DVD drive.
It will then determine that the Harddrive, is the device that has Windows on it, not the DVD drive.

This slows the computer down, and could result in a blue screen.

If you have an IDE harddrive plugged into the motherboard, it would be best to use a SATA DVD drive.

Is it possible to use ID harddisk and SATA harddisk at the same time?


You can indeed mix IDE & SATA drives on a computer. If installing the OS (Operating System) to the IDE HD, you will only need to instruct the BIOS to boot the IDE HD drive first.

If you decide to install an OS on & boot the SATA drive first; you will need to instruct the BIOS to boot the SATA drive first and may need to provide a driver for the SATA controller - if the OS install does not recognize the SATA drive. The driver should have been included on a disk or diskette with the controller (or on the motherboard driver disk if a built-in type controller). You should see a prompt asking "If you need to install a driver.... press F6" (or similar). Press the F6 key and supply the driver disk - and follow the prompts.

Good luck!

I have a compaq witha samsung hd M/NSP2504C, S/N S09QJ1ULB30333. What are the speed and buffer specifications and which hard drive would you recommend for a compatable replacement or slave.


Hello
Samsung SP2504C is a 250 GB hard disk drive using the new SATA-300 interface, which allows a maximum theoretical transfer rate of 300 MB/s. Its main specs also include an 8 MB buffer, 7,200 rpm rotation speed and support to NCQ (Native Command Queuing). In this review we checked the performance of Samsung SP2504C installed on a motherboard using a regular SATA-150 port and also on a motherboard using the new SATA-300 port.
This very same hard disk drive is also available with a 200 GB capacity, being called SP2004C. Both belong to SpinPoint P120 series from Samsung.
Good LUCK AND DO RATE THE SOLUTION IF HELPS

160gb samsung sata II


The PC is not seeing the Hard drive. check the jumper pin for the setting on the hard drive. If you have one HD then it should be set to master or cable select. Reboot and the cmos will see the HD. If not check the cables, and last check to see if the controller driver is installed for the motherboard. The controller is where the cable connects.
