Check to see if your motherboard has a sata controller on it. The user manual will tell you. You can get a new on on asus.com. If it does support it, you will need sata drivers for it which you can download from the website as well.

If it doesn't work you can add one external by picking up and external drive case for sata controllers. Then all you need is a spare USB 2.0 port. Make sure you get one with a power supply for it because at that size getting 500 gig to work will require extra power to perform properly.

Hi,
i,d suggest an 80-120 gig hard drive should be sufficent.
if you require larger drive storage. you can add an external hard-drive via USB upto 500 gig usually without restriction.
You can also purchase An PCI Card, with sata connectors. should you wish to take that option. all the above is dependant on how modern your computer system/systems bios Is.

ASUS P5LD2 Raid 5 locks windows at MUP.SYS


A stab in the dark. Sound like the MB BIOS expects and is written to have the OS on the  IDE  slot. After that I would add one SATA drive at a time to see if it matters and to see if one of the drives are causing the problem.

Max Hard Drive supported


Is this your principal drive or is a SATA drive the main one
Sata and IDE drives do not work together unless you fiddle about with BIOS

The P4VMM2 ver 5.0 has no SATA connectors so to connect a SATA drive to ihe IDE channels you would need an adapter.
