    There are no SATA options listed on any of the BIOS Menus

  • Jenny Smith Jun 12, 2011

    Hi again, sorry it took me so long to respond. I do not have the menu option listed in your solution. Under Integrated Peripherals, VIA OnChip IDE Device, there are the following menu options:
    IDE DMA transfer access (options are enabled or disabled - current setting is enabled)
    OnChip IDE Channel0 (enabled)
    OnChip IDE Channel1 (enabled)
    Primary Master PIO (options are Auto, Mode 0, Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3, Mode 4 - current setting is Auto)
    Primary Slave PIO (options same as above - set to Auto)
    Secondary Master PIO (Auto)
    Secondary Slave PIO (Auto)
    Primary Master UDMA (options are Disabled and Auto currently set to Auto)
    Primary Slave UDMA (options same as above - Auto)
    Secondary Master UDMA (Auto)
    Secondary Slave UDMA (Auto)

    There is no on chip SATA listed anywhere and I find no mention of SATA on any menu whatsoever.

    Also, while trying to respond, I think I accidentally accepted that solution and paid for it even though it's the same problem as when I started - the BIOS has no mention of SATA anywhere.

    Thanks,

    Jenny

    Hi Again.



    It also may be a BIOS Setting to configure the SATA Ports.

The SATA sockets are not enabled from the jumpers; they are enabled from the bios settings. You must enable the SATA controller at the integrated peripherals. Here is an official link to download the motherboard's user manual. Just select an area near to you (U.S. - Europe - Asia) and download the zip file with the manual.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

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.

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

I can detect no SATA' HDD


The ECS PM800-M2 only supports SATA 1.0 hard drives. If you are using a newer SATA 3.0 hard drive, there is a jumper on the hard drive which has to be set to SATA 1.0 in order for the VIA 8237R chipset southbridge (which Is on your ECS PM800-M2) to recognize the newer SATA 3.0 hard drives. This Is applicable to all motherboards with the Viatech PM800 / 8237R chipsets. Note: the location for the SATA 1.0 / 3.0 jumper varies on each brand of hard drives. Also check If SATA Is enabled In the BIOS and select IDE mode.

Can´t find my SATA-disk....


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.

Switching from 40GB IDE HDD to 500GB SATA HDD. SATA won't boot.


Hi there
No there is no need to change any jumpers on a sata drive, go into the bios settings and tell the bios to boot from the western digital drive only.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Are you connecting them via SATA or PATA ?

If you are using PATA you'll need to set the jumpers on the drives. One needs to be a master and the other has to be a slave. Normally the Hard drive would be considered the master.

If they are SATA drives go into your bios and make sure the SATA ports are enabled and not in RAID mode.
