A8VE-SE won't recognize SATA HDD


If you are trying to install Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hello, My my motherborad is ASUS p5rd1-vm;RAM1GB and hard disk is PATA 80 GB but the HDD is having some kind of problem and the windows have shown a warning about it several times. Now i want to buy a...


Yes, it's compatible with the motherboard, no, it's not compatible with the XP install disk because it doesn't have SATA support. And since Asus doesn't provides it special driver needed (one that must be put on a floppy) it means that you simply cannot install XP on this disk.
All you can do is to obtain another PATA hdd what ever its size and install XP in it. Then put the new SATA disk in and use it to store all the installed programs and all your files on it. As a bonus you won't lose them if the new PATA disk fails or XP gets corrupted.
Or install Vista or 7 instead of XP, the have support for SATA disks

When i start it say Reboot and select proper boot device or intsert boot media in selected boot device


Most probably the cause is one of the following:

  • No OS installed.
  • Hard-drive connection is loose.
  • Windows is corrupt.
  • Harddrive jumper is not figured correctly (in case of IDE PATA) or it may have malfunctioned.
Disconnect the PC from the mains supply, remove the cover on the system and check for any loose cable connections of hard drive.
Check inside the BIOS whether the drive is listed and as the first boot device in Boot Order tab.

Note: During inspection take care to avoid touching any board component unnecessarily. Also avoid using force.

Recognizing my sata DVD writer in bios mode


How about a work-around?
(Your post is so old now that you probably figured out a solution . . . so this is for other readers)

I have the exact same motherboard, and a SIMILAR problem.
I have a PATA CD/DVD drive . . . so no problem there.
But I have a SATA hard drive, and the BIOS does NOT see it.
So when I boot from the WinXP CD, that is fine,
but then the install process claims I have no hard drive!
So how can I reinstall WinXP to a hard drive that doesn't exist yet?

Solution that didn't work:
So I knew the ASUS SATA driver (embedded in their RAID driver) needed to be loaded,
and TRUE, the WinXP install process gave me the opportunity (via F6 key) to install any
additional driver for a mass storage device. Great! So, with the latest driver on the floppy
from ASUS using their "MakeDisk" utility, I let the Windows install process read in the driver.
Well, it made the hard disk visible to the installation . . . sort of . . . but then it took me
to the Recovery Console (which I didn't want or need) rather than the Repair Install process
(and there was no "R" option available to initiate the Repair). So, gave up on that!

Solution that I think is sure to work:
Go to Ebay, and buy from Hong Kong a PATA to SATA adapter for about $7.50 including shipping. It is a great deal! And customer ratings gave HIGH marks, so the seller is trustworthy.
Make sure not to buy the SATA to PATA (the other direction), and also, I'd suggest buying the
version in which the little adapter card plugs directly (without a cable) into the PATA socket
on the motherboard, and then plug the SATA cable from it to the SATA hard drive (or the
SATA CD/DVD drive in your case). Connect the power jacks as needed. And presto!
You have converted the PATA interface to a SATA interface which needs no SATA driver!
The BIOS will see the SATA drive as a PATA drive (how clever!). After doing the WinXP
install or whatever, switch back to the way things were and save your adapter card for next time.

Hard drive compatibility


This motherboard is compatible with PATA/IDE Hd's running at 133/66/33Mbs. & ATA/SATA 1.5Mbs drives. The SATA's run faster. This board will not handle a SATA II's speed but it will still run on the P5P800-VM board. The links below show good buy's on both PATA/IDE & SATA I & II. Seagates for their 5yr. warranty.
Seagate ST3160215AS 160GB ATA/SATA
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117012
Seagate ST3160215A 160GB Ultra ATA/100
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=117010
As far a size, that is up too you. Windows can handle 5 time these sizes.

Your motherboard does NOT support SATA drives, without an added SATA controller. It does support PATA drives, such as the Samsung SP2514N and the Seagate PATA drive you listed, as well as any other PATA drive. A PATA drive may be referred to as PATA, IDE, ATA100, ATA133, or even ATA66, but not SCSI, Ultra320, U320, or SATA, SATA II, SATA100, SATA300, etc.

The Seagate drives are easy to identify, their model number ends in AS if it is a SATA drive, and just A if it is a PATA drive.
