    I forgot to say that the problem is with SATA this is the message i got: "Hardware iniatiate failed. please check device The bios not be installed" and then what I told up there.

    Thanks, i would say that the SATA motherboard controller is bad, becaus I tested the disk in other computer and there was no problem. The thing is that I live in Argentina, so I don't that ASUS can give me support, but I'll check if there is other support for mothers here in Arg.





    Thankss

Matias,
Please remove the jumper on the SATA drive. Boot to the bios & see if the SATA drive is listed. If it is you're good. If this is the first SATA you have tried in the Asus board & my suggestion also failed to show the SATA drive you are left with two options.
One the SATA drive is defective or the SATA motherboard controller is bad. You can call Asus tech M-F 8:00AM to 5:00PM EDT. At 1-812-282-2787, there is little wait time when calling Asus tech. Asus does not charge you for calling them.

    Asus supports their boards for three years. (Not by the time you bought it but from the date it was made). One of the oldest bios updates for you're board was listed back on 2003/12/02. I would say it's out of warranty by now.

Interface seagate barracuda 7200.7 200GB drive sata to usb 2 forum


Hello. You are correct that there are no jumpers, however, when you connected the SATA cable to the Internal hard drive, did you notice there were two similar connectors. One was for the SATA the other, longer one is for the POWER for the drive. If your SATA to USB has both connectors make sure they are both installed properly. Be careful you don't break those little plastic tabs because they are not warrantied. If the drive does have power and spins up then it may not be initialized (formatted) and will need to be initialized using START, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management. or just click on start and type diskmgmt.msc in the RUN box.
Hope this helps..

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.

I've connected my Samsung 250GB HD250HJ SATA drive (from a Linkstation) to my PC with a sata-ide adapter. It's recognised at boot time but I get the message 'primary master hard disk fail'. It isn't...


You may need to address the way that the old HDD was used in the BIOS. Meaning that if you had regular IDE drive the setting that may be in the BIOS might need to bee disabled and that could be the cause to the new SATA IDE controller you have installed as a boot device. Also if you are trying to boot from you new SATA drive you will need to install some form of and operating system on it like windows or whatever you have been using.

Sometimes it’s easier to create a disk image of the old drive and transfer it to you new SATA, using a disk image utility like Norton Ghost.

Of course I am assuming that you are using a PC and not a MAC.

Sata hdd not detected


Yes, go into the bios and make sure that SATA is turned on. Sometimes with motherboards that have two ide controllers the SATA is turned off by default. Also another thing to check is whether the motherboard is SATA I or SATA II. If it is SATA I then change the jumper on the hard drive to peg back to SATA I. Your new hard drive is SATA II and the motherboard may not support it.

Can´t find my SATA-disk....


I'm sorry to say buddy but I checked ... Then checked some more, and I can't see anything about your motherboard supporting SATA-II. If you look about you should find a jumper setting on your HDD to limit it to SATA-I, which is about half the speed of sata-ii but I'm almost promising it will work.

Let me know if this solves it, If not I can find the jumper settings for you, But seeing as though you just bought it you should have a manual.

P4VM800 SATA HDD Problem Plz Help me!!!


Your P4VM800 won't detect a SATA II (3 GB/s) drive, only a SATA I (1.5 GB/s). You basically have 2 options:
1. if you have a friend or colleague with a machine that supports SATA II, install the disk in that machine and us the manufacturer's utility to set the SATA to 1.5 GB/s (Seagate/Maxtor disks, but only these do have a jumper to do the job but SATA is in other respects jumperless). Then you can reinstall the disk in your machine.

2. Buy a host adapter card for SATA II and install it in a free slot in your machine - but may be better to put the money towards a new motherboard.

160gb samsung sata II


The PC is not seeing the Hard drive. check the jumper pin for the setting on the hard drive. If you have one HD then it should be set to master or cable select. Reboot and the cmos will see the HD. If not check the cables, and last check to see if the controller driver is installed for the motherboard. The controller is where the cable connects.

Change of hard disk from 160 gb ide to 250 gb sata


Hello there.

I checked the specifications on your motherboard from here .

As you can see it does indeed support SATA Hard Drives, as per the page:

SATA Four-Channel Serial ATA supports 4 SATA II devices

Each SATA hard drive uses up 1 of the channels, so you can use a total of 4 SATA drives at once.

Hope this helps.

Sata, ide


Update: SATA II drives do have jumpers to make them backwards compatible with 1.5 Gb/s (SATA II drives are 3.0 Gb/s). So if your system is older and can only handle SATA (first Gen) then you have to add a jumper (Seagate has the jumper setting on the drive but sometimes supplies no jumper i.e. you have to have your own).
