Good Day sir, hi, Have you tried to enable the IDE on BIOS setup. If the Bios setup did not solve the IDE problem, check the IDE port of the HARD drive, check if there are bent pins.
If still wont work, you can buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card, this is an expansion card in PCI format with IDE and SATA port.We use this card incase the IDE or SATA on the motherboard gets bad. Connect it on the available PCI slot. Then connect the IDE cable of the Hard disk to this card. Thats it.
are you using ide or sata connection? if your using sata conection between your motherboard and harddrive, you must enable it in your bios, just reboot your pc and keep pressing F2 while its booting to prompt your bios. There you can look for IDE/SATA configuration. After enabling your sata, save any changes before you exit and reboot... Just give it a try...
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.
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.
