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!

BIOS will not let me change boot sequence of hard drives. It lists both of them (one SATA and one IDE). Trying to recover info off IDE, primary OS is on SATA. How do I get BIOS to let me change sequence?


check the the jumper pins on the back of the HHD, SATA should be set to master & IDE to slave read the top of the HHD first coz some HHD's have master without slave presant.
boot up as normal then go into "computer" & get the data off the IDE drive.

Windows setup does not see sata drive K8VGA-m


Good day sir, if your hard drive is bad it cannot be detected, but lets review first several reasons why it cannot be detected by your motherboard;
  • check the master / slave setup, if youre hard drive is sata, this is not applicable.
  • check your connection, both data and power cable, to and from the hard drive. (ribbon ide cable or red sata data cable)
  • Still cannot be detected? try to reset your CMOS setup by using the cmos battery jumper. after reset, review the CMOS settings, and enable your IDE/SATA drives. test again.
  • Stiil doesn't work? bring it to a friend who has a PC and try to test your hard drive to any available good PC, to check if your drive is bad.
If your hard drive is good, chances are your motherboard IDE/SATA part is bad, you may need to buy a PCI to SATA/IDE card. connect this card to any available PCI slot, connect your hard drive. hope this helps.

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;

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

945GCT-M/1333 recognize Primary IDE Master as IDE 3 Master


Hello. Some motherboards set SATA1 as IDE primary master, for compatibility. Try connect the DVD RW to SATA2 or SATA3 Port.

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!

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.
