Afraid Excelstors hard drive repair tool requires the drive to get wiped to fix the errors not like seagate or western digitals, only thing worth trying is put in a windows xp disc and boot off the disc, Press R on the first screen to do a repair in like dos mode. it will take you into a black screen with a dos prompt, type this in CHKDSK C: /R then press enter it will take about 30min-1hr but has a good chance of getting the drive to read.. once complete take out xp disc and restart pc all the best John

Was this 80GB cloned (copied) from an old 30GB disk?
Open Computer Management window doing this:
Start button - settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management.
In the window that open, on the left hand side pane, expand Storage and click Disk Management. On the left hand side window, lower pane you should see a list of disks. See Disk 0,Basic <disk size>, Online. Do you see the 80GB as disk size? To the right you would see a series of boxes. Probably you see (C:) 30GB NTFS Healthy (system). Do you see to the right of it a box with 50GB (unknown partition)?
If so, you do have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows. You can still use the the unknown partition. Post back here if you need instructions.

this mainly depends on The Operating system, if your using Windows 2000 or above it should,nt be an issue.
sometimes there are limitations on 2 hard-drives sharing the same IDE channel on the mainboard.
Try putting the second hard-drive on the secondary motherboard slot, with it,s own individual cable.
If non of the above works, it,s possibly not formatting correctly.
you,ll need a program that zeros then formats the drive.
Hope this helps.

right click on the 'My Computer' icon, go to 'Manage', then click on 'Disk Management', and see if you need to either format the drive, assign a drive letter, or if it's recognized correctly. Most of the time, you'll find the drive in here just needs to be formatted, or it needs to be assigned a specific drive letter.

SOURCE: BIOS PROBLEM
I don't think you have a problem with the BIOS version but more likely with the settings.
Please enter in the BIOS and be sure that under: main menu, ide configuration, Parallel ATA IDE controller is set up as Primary. Then you go under advance menu, Serial ATA IDE controller and be sure you don't have RAID.
Copy of the manual can be find here http://dlsvr.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock754/k8v_vm_ultra/e2476_k8v-vm_ultra.pdf
Let's start with this checks and then let me know.
