Question about EliteGroup P4M800-M7 Motherboard
I have an Elitegroup P4M800-M7 mother board and I just bought a new Seagate 750 Gbyte SATA drive. The motherboard does not recognize the drive, I am wondering if this drive is too big. Any suggestions?
No, the size does not matter. When you state the motherboard does not see the SATA drive are you saying the bios does not list the SATA drive? You're 750GB drive is most likely SATA 2.0 / 3.00BG transfer rate.
The P4M800-M7 does support SATA but it does not support SATA 2.0. So what you need to do to get the drive to function at a lower speed. Set to run Ultra 100/133MHz. You'll need help to do this. Try this software for Seagate. It might work for Seagate.
I haven't the time to research Seagates site for simular software.
However you can look through Seagate. Again you want to lower the SATA drive speed to Ultra. The bios will than see the SATA & so will windows.
