ASUS K8V Deluxe Won't See My Sata Drive

Just press F12 (or whatever the instruction says) and select "CD or DVD drive" or something similar and then press . Thanks for any help. For that matter you might be able to buy a 60 or 80 GB IDE drive for not much more. Maybe then, at least I'll have some satisfaction! his comment is here

Any help would be tremendously appreciated. Does your manual (or maybe a supplementary sheet of instructions that came with the motherboard) say anything about having to install drivers in order to get the motherboard's SATA features working? One more question...are you by chance using a USB keyboard with this newly configured/built computer? That's when I remembered that when MY hard drive went bad (after 6 months!), I used THIS ONE from my sons computer (before I built it) as a substitute while waiting http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/asus-k8v-deluxe-wont-see-my-sata-drive.110695/

I have a windows 7 pc. I had the Duel Core Optimizer still loaded from having my 4800+ installed and it didn't like the Quad Core :) Uninstalling it solved the BSOD issue and system running stable.By a Spanned array - stores the same data on multiple drives by combining the drives into one logical drive. I merely installed the VT8237 SATA drivers (I wasn't booting Windows from that drive, so I installed them on an existing Windows XP installation on an IDE drive).

Do I need to keep the RAID function enabled for the SATA to work?You don't happen to have six fingers on your right hand, do you? poindexterAug 17, 2004, But for now, I'd turn them both on. Double check that if you're not certain. You may also...

If you have Vista there should be no problem Geek on huntilla, Feb 7, 2008 #8 Eezak Staff Sergeant Copasta, Which version of Windows are you installing? It could be there's some similar foul up in your BIOS, though you'd hope that SATA drives are common enough by now (I bought the Gigabyte motherboard I'm talking about 15 I imagine your DVD drive has that sort of cable and it's apparently plugged into an IDE controller and that's fine. No current CD or DVD drive can run any faster than UDMA 66 speeds, and they probably never will, due to the limitations of how fast an optical disk can spin.

If you don't have the patience for that, you may, of course, try contacting ASUS support through (I was going to type "via" instead of "through" but didn't want to risk Note this info from the page link at the ASUS forums you previously posted: "The 1005 BIOS for the K8V Deluxe SE ( rev 12/22/2004) is the last of the BIOS's

If you have connected the SATA drive with both a power and a data cable, then the likely problem is in your motherboard BIOS. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/306476-30-asus-m5a99x-sata-hard-drive-issues-recognized-bios-windows I understand you're getting that message "No hard drive found" but that may only indicate that the BIOS sees no hard drive it can boot from -- which is correct of A drive controller capable of RAID can run in plain SATA or IDE mode.

It may take a day or two for you to get a response if you post this question in the ASUS forums though. Do you want me to clarify any information? #4 Neozero, Oct 25, 2004 helpmeout Senior member Joined: Sep 24, 2001 Messages: 540 Likes Received: 0 Neozero, these SATA drive connections

I have a slightly older mboard - Asus A7V600 - on one computer that has the VT8237 - I did NOT set up a RAID array when I had a SATA Then you use the "slipstreamed" CD rather than the original one to install Windows.

I tried the route of loading them on cd again, but should have known better!

After doing some research, I found that VIA SATA chipset (vt8237) will only detect my SATA hd as PCI adapter .So my HD won`t be detect as IDE on old K8V The Promise controller can be Enabled / Disabled in the bios settings.

Anyway, I bought an Asus K8V-SE Deluxe Socket 754 motherboard to go with an Athlon 64 3300+ cpu I had laying around looking for a home. You'll probably see two such round jacks on the back of your computer. More details about your system will help in checking on what we can do to help. http://quodsoftware.com/asus-k8v/asus-k8v-se-and-sata-drive-detection.html Report • #2 Rudy79 October 31, 2010 at 21:47:06 Thanks grasshopper, but I have already tried.BIOS set-up at the moment:Boot priority is floppy - HDD - CDROM (all IDE)I've enabled SATA

And you only have one DVD drive hooked up to the mobo currently and it's plugged into the Secondary IDE controller, the drive jumper is set to "Master", and the plug As far as RAID goes, if you only have one drive or you have two drives, but don't intend to use them in a RAID configuration you probably don't need to CD's are good though, if you can use your own computer to download all the motherboard drivers and are able to burn them to a CD. Again this "bug" only manifests itself or rears it's ugly head if you use both controllers at the same time.

When it's enabled, a line probably pops up early while booting, asking if you want to set up RAID - if you don't press the specified key, the boot continues after That "IDE Configuration" sub-menu item, according to the picture of the Main BIOS page in your motherboard manual, should have been right underneath the "Fourth IDE Master" sub-menu item. It could be an unimportant feature that was dropped from later BIOSes, but I wish we knew what it was for. About how many seconds elapse from the time the install starts until it freezes up?

What about that "IDE Configuration" sub-menu? So look in the BIOS, usually it's the first or second menu selection starting at the top left of the BIOS menus (can't remember what it's called right now), highlight it Edit Reply Quote & Reply 12345678NextLast Previous Topic:: Next Topic Feedback for our Website Moderator: New Topic Related FAQ Forum Home Forum Select Forum Audio Cards Graphic Card LCD Monitors Mobile Please delete one of them.

Possible? My BIL submitted detailed test reports to ASUS and I think that was roughly 2 months ago, still waiting for a reply. Hope this helps #7 Uncle Bob, Oct 27, 2004 Neozero Junior Member Joined: Oct 25, 2004 Messages: 6 Likes Received: 0 dear uncle BOB i tried to access to set
