You can try wiping the cmos settings, as they may be corrupt, find the JBAT1 terminal on your mobo and put jumper across pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2. Boot up pc and reset time, date and get the bios to auto identify drives, normally F12 depending on mobo. Also check that your cmos battery isn't low as it may keep losing the settings.

How do you connect IDE device to GA-Z87X-UD4H

This particular motherboard does not provide IDE connections for external devices. The safest option would be to use an IDE expansion card that will plug into the PCI bus and provide normal IDE connections for your devices.
A quick search to google for "ide expansion card" will provide many good results.

check the jumper settings on all the ide devices and be sure are correct. Also check cables and connections to be ok. u may also try another memory module as a faulty one could also cause failed boot

I am using a single SATA II Drive in a new system, GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P, AMD 790X & SB750 chipsets. I know I can let the SATA II be a "Native IDE" but isn't that loosing any benefit of the SATA II...

The "Native IDE" mode causes the motherboard to "report" to the Operating System that the installed SATA drive is an IDE drive, rather than reporting "no IDE drives installed", and then requiring the Operating System to load a SATA device-driver to interface with the SATA drive.

Using RAID to "mirror" your hard-drive is a very-cool way to provide a "real-time" and "up-to-date" backup.

Should one of your drives suddenly "die", the other will continue to work, and you can buy another hard-drive, re-establish the "mirroring", and continue to work productively -- no fiddling with offline/stale backups.

Gigabyte K8vm800M Motherboard Does Not Recognise Seagate SATA HDD

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE PAST. I REPLACE THE IDE HDD WITH SATA AND AFTER I BOOT IT SAYS NO HARDDISK. IT IS BECAUSE WINDOWS XP HAS NO BUILT IN SATA DRIVER.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IS CHANGE YOUR HARDDISK TO IDE OR INTEGRATE A SATA DRIVER INTO YOUR XP (USE NLITE) OR USE THE FLOPPY DRIVE TO RUN SATA DRIVER ITS INCLUDED IN THE MOBO WHEN BUYING.

Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ Motherboard has problems running multiple IDE devices

Ok, you have 2 x UDMA ATA 133/100/66 Bus Master IDE ports on that motherboard, so you can support 4 ide devices. It is important that you split your devices between the 2 available ide channels (each channel has a seperate ribbon cable). For example if you have 1 hard drive and 1 cd drive you'd want to place each on a seperate channel. If you have 2 hard drives and 1 cd drive it's best to place each hard drive on a seperate channel and the cd drive on the same channel as one of the hard drives. You have to make sure the jumper settings on the drives are correct (1 master and 1 slave) when placing 2 drives on the same channel for example. Most likely your jumper settings are not correct and are causing this problem. The jumpers are located on the rear of the drive near where the power cable is plugged into the drive. Most hard drives have the jumper setting printed on the hard drive. Once the jumpers are correct you should be ok.
