Hi iCe_sPeRm, all SATA drives are seen as all masters. While in the bios you'll want to connect the SATA with windows on it to the SATA 1 port on the board. So back in the bios you should see the 80GB drive listed first. The 320GB drive should be on the 2nd SATA port & listed second in the bios under the 80BG drive.
The most important thing to do in the bios is make sure you're 80BG drive is the only drive listed in the boot order.
Once windows has loaded you may need to change drive letters using MS windows diskmgmt.msc. To load disk manager in windows click the start button, click run & type in the run window diskmgmt.msc & click ok. You can change the order that windows see's the drives. You can also rename the drives. EX: Rename C:\ as Master_Drv or Master_80. Than rename the 320GB drive as Slave_320 ECT. This way you'll know which is what.

    Double check the 320GB SATA drive's data cable & power cable at the mother board & at the drive. Chances are the one or both have a loose connection.

    It only takes a slight bump for either cable to come loose.

    When you look at the cables they will look like their connected but give them a push! Vibration within the PC can cause either cable to come loose, just enough for the drive not to be seen. There is one other thing you can do. Take some house hold alcohol & place a few drops on a cotton swap or two. Clean the contacts of the SATA data cable (Both ends). This will remove any dust & help make better connection. Each time you loose the 320GB drive in windows. Shut down the PC & unplug the power cord to the PC. Check the cables again (Give them a push. Leave the case open & plug the power cable back in. Start the system & see if window see's the drive again. If windows see's the drive replace the data cable with a new cable.

    If you feel there is an issue with the 320GB drive you can go to the drives manufactures web site. Download the tools/utilities & setup software for you're drive. You should be able to create a bootable floppy disk or bootable software for a CD. Disconnect all drives except the 320GB SATA (The bootable software runs in a dos mode. You do not need windows). Move the 320GB drive to SATA port 1. Check the drive with the manufactures software.

    This will give you piece of mind that the drive is in good shape or not.



    Good Luck iCe_sPeRm!

Jumper setting for slave drive


there is no such master or slave setting when SATA is used.
it is mainly used to tell the motherboard which one is master or slave when connected with IDE cable (PATA).
you don't need to worry about it as you are using a SATA HD.

the boot disk priority can be set in the BIOS
press del or F2 after you press the power button on CPU. you will be put with the BIOS/CMOS setup. go to boot priority and set accordingly, there is also an option to set the default hard disk in case you have more than one HD.

Weird problem. CPU recognizes the sata, windows will not boot, recycles to start-up over and over. Tried with xp disc to repair, came back as "no hard drive listed. If I changer driver from master to slave...


It is possible that Bios/Cmos battery is not maintaining its charge. You might want to pull the cmos battery & check its voltage with a volt meter. It should retain 3volt DC. If it reads lower than 3v replace the battery. Once replaced you will need to reset all bios settings. If the battery checks out ok than continue.
The soulation to your problem lies within the Bios not your hard disk drive. Set the jumper you moved to slave back to master. Re-connect the SATA data & power connector to the motherboard. Boot up your PC & start pressing the Delete key on your keyboard every two seconds untill the Bios menu opends. (See page 2-14 section 2.3) in your manual.
You can not use your mouse while in the bios. Read page 2-12, section 2.2.1). This will explain how to move about while in the bios. Once the Bios opends you will be at the main menu. If your SATA drive is correctly connected you will see its model number listed there.
If you have two SATA drives connected you should see both. Take note of which is the master SATA1 drive. All SATA drives run as master drives. While in the Bios, SATA drives are shown from top to bottom. First /top drive will be the master drive. Next drive down is considered as slave.
Than open (OnChip SATA controller). Set this to [Native Mode] or to [SATA]. See page 2-16, section 2.3.5
Than open Boot. See page 2-30, section 2.6, Open Boot Device Priority section 2.6.1 Here is where you need to set the boot order.
(The boot order is not set correctly & this is why windows does not see your hard disk drive & showed the message "No hard drive listed").
If you have a floppy disk drive connected to the system set it as,
[1st Boot device]
Change 2nd Boot Device to [CD-ROM]
If you have two CD/DVD-ROM drives in your system make sure you set the Master CD/DVD-ROM here & not the slave CD/DVD-ROM drive.
3rd Boot Device should be the primary [SATA1 drive], connected to SATA1 port on the motherboard. See page 2-30 section 2.6.2
The drive with windows installed shoud be listed as 1st.
Save your changes & exit the bios. Your system will auto re-start.
If you had a working operating system on the drive it should load.

If you need the motherboard manual or drivers you can download them from Asus web site link below;

My computer shows to setup array and does not detect one hard disk


Please try to system reformat/reinstall OS to your HDD under SATA connection. then kindly check the jumper setting of HDD under IDE connection which I suggest to place it at Master while the SATA HDD will be automatically recognized as Slave by your computer. best regards

Second harddrive


Make sure its jumper is set as slave, if you have a 40wire ribbon cable, and cable select if you are using a 80 wire ribbon cable, if it is on the same ribbon cable.
If it is on the second ide cable, by itself keep it as master.

Harddisk


Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, if this is the primary HD, set it to master, if secondary, set it to slave, if secondary still does not recognize, switch the ide cable so that the two drives are not on the same one.
