Question about Asrock P4VM8 Motherboard

2 Answers

Does Asrock P4VM8 support 500GB SATA hard disks?

I connected HITACHI 500GB SATA hard disk into my P4VM8 motherboard. It is not detected by the BIOS program. I updated my BIOS program to ver1.30. Also installed new SATA drivers to 'SATA driver ver:3.00b' & 'VIA SATA Driver For Floppy Disk ver:3.00b'. But it didn't fix the problem. My hard disk is working. I checked it on another type of motherboard. Then it is working.

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.

Check your AHCI (or ACHI, can't remember) settings in your BIOS. Turn them off, use "standard pata mode" even though you're using a SATA drive, and try again.

ASUS K8S-MX Motherboard, but when I connect IDE


How were the partitions created on the SATA? Are they RAID configured from the other system? Does the new motherboard have the same support for your HD as the other system? Check the setup in the BIOS screen on both systems to make them identical as much as you can. According to Tom's Hardware: "In the SATA port configuration place you have up to four "mode" choices: IDE (or PATA) Emulation, native SATA, AHCI, or RAID." Check this section.
