Re: I just bought a new SATA II internal hardisk
Hi my name is wesley. please check if *********** board has sata ports in it ou will see it easilly on the board if not then you cannot use it sorry. the ports are either red or black and all you do is plug one end to the board and the other to the hard disak then plug power in the hard disk and it will work if not then you might need to set it as slave if you already have a master hard disk you will see there are pins on the hard disk with a little jack and the instructions on how to put it to slave or master is on the disk all you gotta do is move the jack accordingly.

Windows XP does -not- have native SATA support and therefore will not recognize a SATA drive without first installing 3rd party drivers. To go around this problem without installing drivers check your BIOS. There might be something in there where the bios will emulate an IDE controller.
If not, you'll need a floppy and the sata drivers. A flash drive will also do if the motherboard bios supports legacy USB. To find the drivers, simply go to the motherboards manufacturers website.
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.
Hello all. I have the same issue. My MB is 845G [P4 2.4 Ghz] and SATA harddisk I need to install is Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s interface, I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this motherboard should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the supports SATA I [these are cheaper].
