The PC is not seeing the Hard drive. check the jumper pin for the setting on the hard drive. If you have one HD then it should be set to master or cable select. Reboot and the cmos will see the HD. If not check the cables, and last check to see if the controller driver is installed for the motherboard. The controller is where the cable connects.

I have replaced the hard drive on my HP G5000 laptop with a Samsung HM161GI drive. All tests OK on BIOS diagnostics, but Windows XP Setup says no hard disk is installed??


This happens because the hard disk is natively a SATA and XP doesn't have a generic SATA driver so from its point of view the disk is not there. You will need to go into the BIOS and set the SATA connection to use the legacy/IDE mode.

Jumper setting for slave drive


there is no such master or slave setting when SATA is used.
it is mainly used to tell the motherboard which one is master or slave when connected with IDE cable (PATA).
you don't need to worry about it as you are using a SATA HD.

the boot disk priority can be set in the BIOS
press del or F2 after you press the power button on CPU. you will be put with the BIOS/CMOS setup. go to boot priority and set accordingly, there is also an option to set the default hard disk in case you have more than one HD.

Have installed two new SATA HDD's, but don't show up in CMOS


Just a tip: Your OS shouldn't be on RAID. RAID is for storage.

If it is a software RAID you will need to load drivers

Even if they are disabled in boot configuration, it will show them as being attacked. You should have two areas in your BIOS/CMOS for configuring & enabling, along with setting order of boot.

You need to install the SATA drivers that belog to your specific motherboard.
When you are installing Windows thru your Windows CD, there is a moment at teh beginning of the process that you will be asked to press F6 if you want to install 3rd party drivers.
That is your call.
Once the SATA drivers are installed, you will be able to continue with your Windows installation.

Sata Harddisk Not detected in Post operation


Hi vijjis,
Make sure your SATA drive is connected to SATA port 1 which is the bottom port. Double check both the data cable & power cable. The data cable only connects one way at the board & at the drive. Same for the power cable. Your SATA drive must be listed in the bios menu & you must list the SATA drive with-in the boot order. If your cabling is all correct & you still do not see the SATA drive in the bios menu than the onboard SATA controller is defective. This can not be repaired because it is integrated into the board. It will not hurt to clear the cmos. See page 15 in your manual. Your board can only run SATA 1.0 = 150MBs. If your Seagate is pinned for SATA II = 300MBs, change the jumper on the drive. (This may or may not work). See if the bios list the drive.
One other option, you can buy a PCI SATA controller.
Here are a few; http://www.google.com/products?q=Promise+pci+sata+I+controller&btnG=Search+Products&hl=en&show=dd

Did you get an error message during install of the (system with the SATA 160GB drive)? Make sure the 160GB drive is shown in the bios. Than go to the title, Boot in the bios & make sure the SATA 160GB is listed in the boot order. (Preferred 3rd. boot device)
Please go to the SATA drive's manufactures site & download either their bootable floppy or CD setup software. (It’s free)! Use their software to setup the FAT & cluster size on the drive. You can even set other features that neither the bios or windows can do. Format the 160GB drive with the software as well. The manufacture's software does a better job than windows. If the 160GB drive is a SATA 2.0 leave the jumper on the drive alone. The Desktop Board supports four Serial ATA channels (3.0 GB/s) via ICH7, connecting one device per channel.
Again, please run the manufactures setup software for your SATA 160GB drive. (Disconnect any other drives that may be in the system until windows is installed).

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
