Question about Asrock P4VM8 Motherboard

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.

Does the mother board Asrock 845GV (P4I45GV) support pci sata card


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

I have k8-upgrade-NF3. I tried to connect two SATA CD-ROM to SATA1 and SATA2 ports but the computer restart constantly. The domada is: i can connect cd-rom and cd-burner on SATA1 and SATA2 matherboard?...


you need to change the BIOS setup. Go to the booting menu change the arrangement of your hardware.
1.Primary Disk (Hard disk) 2.CD/DVD ROM 3. Floppy 4.others
then save and exit. Your PC will reboot and MUST detect first your hard drive to proceed to your desktop..
I hope it will help you..

Sir my problem is that my SATA hard disk not detected by system. Also when i detect the SATA/IDE hard disk system hang, and nothing happen. But that time keyboard not hang. My SATA ports work...


Each PATA device (disk-drive or CD/DVD) drive has some small jumpers.

For the two devices connected via the one ribbon-cable,
set the jumpers on one device to the MA(ster) setting,
and set the other device to the SL(ave) setting.

Or, set both devices on the one cable to the C(able)S(elect) setting.

When properly set, both devices will be quickly and properly detected.

Be sure that your BIOS SETUP has been configured to allow SATA devices,
i.e., not set to "disabled" mode.

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.

Unable to detect SATA hard dik drive. on asrock 775VM800 motherboard.


Not much info to go on but..
1. Try swapping the connector between SATA port 1 & 2.
2. On boot enter BIOS, if it is recognized as a device in your BIOS then it is simply a formatting/windows issue.
3. Does it show up in windows Device Manager & is the driver installer/working properly? If not, uninstall driver and let it install again automatcally.
4. in control panel under Adminstrative tools open Computer Management, in left-side menu select Storage->Disk Management, it may show up as unallocated drive / disk space, quick format it with NTFS file system.

Asrock P4V8+ freezes after ram checking


Try going into the BIOS and selecting safe or minimal settings/options save and reboot. If this works go back to BIOS and make changes one at a time until it may not work again, then you will know which option is causing the system hang ups. My guess is also your motherboard is SATA 1 capable (1.5
gbs) not SATA 2, in which you could purchase a separate controlller card for your HDD. Good luck.
