Hi,

Depending on the brand and model of the motherboard, your concern is indicative that the SATA is not enabled. Pls enable, save and exit, reboot. Thereafter enter CMOS/BIOS again to auto/manually detect.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back brand & model of your motherboard, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sir, i have an msi n1996 (vt8237r & km400 8237) mother board. My sata 160 gb hdd is not getting recognized in bios. Pl. help. (it is reported somewhare on the net that i have to enter into the...


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.

Good Luck to you.

How do you turn on the SATA controllers for this board? By this I mean how can you put the SATA connections and their drives into the boot order? I can't see this option in the BIOS only to enable the...


SATA Controllers are always on. you can't disable or enable it.
RAID and SATA are two different subjects and they are not dependent each other.
so if you got a problem with your motherboard explain it clearly.

Need to boot from SATA drive


If you only have one SATA drive, you do not need to have the RAID setting turned on in CMOS. RAID is only for 2 or more SATA or SCSI drives. Shut that off and try again.

Windows Installation gives blue screen errors.


Hi, at the boot up go into your bios [ on MSI press the delte key continuosly] and turn OFF the onboard virus protection. This can block all O/S from loading as they need to write to the bios in the installation process. Ensure you turn it back on after installation, it is there to stop hackers getting into your bios and wrecking your system. Regards mistyman
