Hello, i have the same problem, i bought a 200 gb samsung sata II disk, i put a jumper to change it to SATA I, but still my mother doesn't detect it. I flash the bios as you said, and then the mother detect de HD, all right untill I turn the PC off, when I start it again all the same message and the HD is not detected. So only detects it when I flash the BIOS, but then not.

Re: Same problem, but not solved
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.

I enabled SATA support on my BioStar M7VIZ-SATA MOBO (it is km400 and 8237r, like yours) by first installing the VIA SATA RAID drivers. At this point, Windows recognized the device controller but not the 120GB drive. The problem was that the system doesn't support "newer" SATA drives, so I installed a jumper on the disk drive to set it to "150" mode... SATA version 1 compatibility. After that, Windows immediately recognized the drive and mounted the filesystem.
I think it was a Western Digital drive. Other manufacturers have a different name for the same jumper. Also, I read that one type (Samsung?) can only be set to the old SATA standard by getting the drive running in a SATA 2 environment, then using a utility program to adjust the drive's microcode setting.
2 (SATA 300) is not backwards compatible with a SATA (SATA 150)
controller. In order to use a SATA 2 drive on a SATA (SATA 1?)
controller, the hard drive must have a jumper position to restrict it
to using SATA (SATA 150), and a jumper must be installed. Some drives
have the jumper position available (e.g. some recent Samsung), some
don't (e.g. some recent Maxtor). This information can also probably be easily found on your hard drive manufacturer's web site. If your drive does not have the jumper position available, you must return it and get a SATA 2 one that does, or a SATA drive.
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.
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.
According to the hard drive manufacturer Maxtor, motherboard host controllers using the VIA and SIS chipsets VT8237, VT8237R, VT6420, VT6421L, SIS760, SIS964 found on the ECS 755-A2 manufactured in 2003, do not support SATA 3 Gbit/s drives. To address interoperability problems, the largest hard drive manufacturer, Seagate/Maxtor, has added a user-accessible jumper-switch known as the Force 150, to switch between 150 MB/s and 300 MB/s operation. Users with a SATA 1.5 Gbit/s motherboard with one of the listed chipsets should either buy an ordinary SATA 1.5 Gbit/s hard disk, buy a SATA 3 Gbit/s hard disk with the user-accessible jumper, or buy a PCI or PCI-E card to add full SATA 3 Gbit/s capability and compatibility. Western Digital uses a jumper setting called "OPT1 Enabled" to force 150 MB/s data transfer speed. OPT1 is used by putting the jumper on pins 5 & 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA Dalius
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.
Bummer I couldn't even find that MB on Gigabyte's site, however a more to the point question for you would be: Are you going to use a XP operating system? If yes than down load the drive's Mfg disk software. Usally you can than creat a boot disk to setup your drive. Pay attention to the jumper settings listed on the drive. If its a PATA drive = serial ATA-133/66/33 you will need to set the jumper for a master or slave or master with a slave. If its a SATA and your board supports SATA II you will need to remove the jumper to allow up 3.0gig transfer rates. If your board does not support SATA II than leave the jumper on. If your board does not support SATA I = 1.5gig tranfer rate, than you can not use this in your system.
Check the SATA/RAID controller setting.
It could have been set to [Disabled]
Refer to your user?s manual for a detailed description on how to enable the onboard SATA/RAID controller by adjusting the jumper or BIOS settings.
