Question about Foxconn NF4UK8AA-8EKRS Motherboard

Stops booting - SATAII

I inherited my son's old PC and set up freeNAS with two 500GB drives. Everything worked fine for about a week. Then, when I turned it on it hung early in the boot process. I coudn't even get to the BIOS screen. I finally got it to boot by removing one of the HDs. A few days later, the other HD seemed to go bad and I RMA'd both of them. I ended up with two HDs from a different manufacturer and the same thing happened. I put the HDs into another system and they work fine.

Buy a new coputer :0) Make sure all cables are secured into the harddrives and also check that the pins on the harddrives are set to master and slave. press firmly on the ram to make sure they are inserted properly sometimes they can unseat. clear your systems cmos by removing the pin and placing it from 1, 2 to 2,3 resest and place back to original 1,2 this should allow you to enter system bios. check and see if bios recognizes both harddrives if not remove one and check to make sure pins are set to master and restart.If this still does not work remove the pin entirely and retry , once again if does not work place pin on CS. If there is still a problem your cord could be bad if your cd/dvd rom is found disconnect and try that cord if this works you know your problem.

HDD2189 F ZK01 Need the info to be transferred to an external hard drive. What is the easiest and least expensive route?


Is the 60gb Toshiba hard drive still working? If so, the best route would be to just buy a usb external drive. Somewhere like Bestbuy or Walmart that carries them at pretty reasonable prices. This way, you can use it not only on that system but others as well. That would be the cheapest way for "external".

Try to go into the bios and set the first boot device as your sata hdd. There will be a option in boot section of the cmos setup where the hdd drive order will be mentioned. If PATA is shown first press enter in the option select SATA and press enter save and exit changes things should go on fine.


Also check your pata hdd and cdrom specific jumper setting. For more help post your HDD model and make and cdrom model and the bios type

Can't detect HD WD 500GB SataII 16MB cache


If you purchased a full retail hard drive the drive came with Data Life Guard tools. Boot to the Data Life Guard cd and follow the prompts to set up your new drive. This should by pass any bios limitations.

If your drive didn't come with the Tool cd you can download it from Western Digital's site.

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.

Computer won't detect new HDD as master when booting


You can do this!

1. Connect your 500gig drive as the slave of your smaller boot drive.
2. Go to http://freewareapp.com/western-digital-data-lifeguard-tools_download/ and get the Western Digital Lifeguard tools.
3. Run the executable to install WD tools.
4. Run that application.

You'll notice there is a Drive to Drive Copy utility. This will clone your new 500gig drive from the smaller drive. When the utility finishes copying the drive, shut down. Remove the smaller drive, and set your 500 gig drive as master/single. Reboot, and you should be running off the new drive.

It is possible that your old drive was an IDE drive and your new one is SATA. If so, you may need to enter Setup on the reboot, go to the Boot menu, and set the boot device to the new drive type.

CD ROM doesn't detect discs at all?


My best quess wouldbe that the drive went out and you just don't realize or want to admit it. Switch it back to another system to test it, if it still dosn't work scrap it. Otherwise I would try booting to dos with an old 98se disk, see if it's your OS if it is, reinstall 2k.
