Question about Asrock K7VT4A-Pro Motherboard

Open Question

Asrock K7VT4A-Pro Motherboard with 1TB SATA harddisk. BIOS doesn't pick the disk up. It works fine with a 500GB SATA disk. I've tried flashing the BIOS to the latest version but this doesn't help. Any other ideas short of new motherboard or standalone SATA controller?

SOURCE: I am using Asrock 775VM800 Motherboard with 80GB

There should be a jumper on the hard drive to select between 3G and 1.5G speeds. It appears that your MB only supports the 1.5G speed.

Disconnect the power from the diskette-drive, from the disk-drive, and from the CD/DVD devices. Then, try to start your computer.

I have the 500GB Deskstar SATA HDD. I am running XP Pro. I have flashed the bios to version 1.80 (the latest) No-where in the POST screen or the Bios screens is a SATA drive recognised. Likewise,...

Hi john25090,

Have you gone into Bios and made sure the Bios is reading the drive? If not you can sometimes manually tell Bios that the drive is there and then the rest will see it.

Try that first.

Good Luck

Sata on k7vt4a-pro. wont boot into windows with any dvd drive in sata plug.does motherboard support sata dvd drives


not usually No.
You need to setup the Pc with an IDE drive First. Then load The Sata drivers, usually on the setup CD. ( obtained with motherboard )
Alternative, is to create a SATA/Raid boot Disk et,c.

My sata Dvd Writer 22xsuper-writermaster SH-223 is not bootable

Try pressing F12 at splashscreen (compaq splashscreen) and it will give you bootable options. Choose DVD drive.

If that doesn't work, press F2 (bios options) and change the bootable disk drives. The DVD should be the first, followed by the hard drive and then the floppy next.

Reboot and your PC will tell you to press any key to boot from CD.

Does Asrock P4VM8 support 500GB SATA hard disks?

near the interface port of the hard drive you have to put a jumper that limit the connection speed from 3.0giga per second to 1.5giga per second, I think that would solve the problem because the hard drive speed goes to 3 giga per second and the motherboard p4vm8 serial ata port can support up to 1.5giga per second.
