Windows Support Forum



Hey guys sorry if this is in the wrong section, but i'm looking to upgrade from a HDD to SSD. I've been reading online about my board and apparently the marvell 9128 controller sucks speed wise. I was looking at the Corsair Force 3 because of the read/write speeds. Upon doing more digging though it looks like id be better off running a drive on the SATA 2 ports. Would I then be better off getting a SATA 2 SSD for slightly cheaper?

I'm confused on what to do. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Asus P6X58D-E - SATA II SSD or SATA III SSD?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


See My Specs. Intel SATA II works better for me than Marvel SATA III. All those spec sheets means very little in real world applications. I chose the Intel 510 for three reasons, reliability, reliability, 5 year warranty.

Yesterday I had a PC technician around to see why my PC was not booting-up properly and also to change my SSD to a larger SSD. As I am visually challenged I cannot do hardware upgrades etc, so I got a Techie guy in.

We used Zinstall HDD by-the-way and I would highly recommend this application for such a job plus, it is extremely fast.

Anyway, while he was diagnosing my boot-up issue he discovered I had a malfunctioning network card; while removing this, he noticed all the SATA settings were set to SATA 2.

When he reset these to SATA 3, the PC would not start-up! When he set them again to SATA 2 there was no problem and it worked fine?

Can anyone illuminate me on this please?

Thanks for any/all imput

A:SATA 3 not working on Asus P6X58D-E motherboard with SATA III support

Many people have had issues with the Marvell controller on that MB.
You may want to live with SATA 3g/s. Easiest path, no real difference except for benchmarks, and no chance of data loss.
But in case you're not satisfied with that, here's something to look at.

Only the burst speed will increase going to SATA 6Gbs, sequential read and write speeds do not exceed SATA 3Gbs speeds.

The 6Gbs ports on your motherboard are provided by an additional Marvell controller, therefor they should not show up in the BIOS but in the Marvell ROM that loads after the initial BIOS. The Marvell controller also needs to be enabled in the BIOS, and it may be disabled.

Also, grab the motherboard manual as well and see what settings should be enabled for the Marvell controller to work and how to enable AHCI on it:

I've been getting this message for about a month. However, after rebooting sometimes once, sometimes several times the computer eventually boots up. After reading multiple posts on similar issues, I went and got a new hard drive. I backed up all the files and was going to reinstall evertyhing from scratch onto this new hard drive. I took the old one out and put in the new one. I get the same message when it tries to boot.
At this point I swapped the drives again (the old one is back in).
I am at a loss.

My SSD firmware updater needs to do it in DOS. To be recognized in DOS, my HD has to be interfaced temporary in IDE.

I went through all menus and submenus, but I didn't find way to do it in BIOS. Any clue?

A:Asus P5N-MX; how to change from SATA to IDE

[QUOTE=Saintor;1925869] To be recognized in DOS, my HD has to be interfaced temporary in IDE.

It does? I that hard to believe. Where did you get that information?

You can't update the firmware while the drive is running the OS. So you need to run the executable from outside the OS.

One way you can do this by booting from your W7 installation DVD and performing the operations to access the System Recovery Options and then choosing the option to open a DOS prompt (Command Prompt). Then you navigate to the EXE (on the USB stick, I assume) using DOS commands.

System Recovery Options
See if that works for you.

I am running XP Pro, with Asus K8V SE M\B and currently Maxtor SATA drive.
I needed to clone my hard drive to a new one, as the old one was suspect.
I used Norton Ghost to clone my O\S and data over to the new "WD" SATA drive (which was connected via a sata-usb adapter for convenience)

When inserting the new WD drive in to the M\B, the bios wouldn't detect the drive at all (although Windows had previously). I tried all SATA connectors on the board, but no joy with detection.
The old MAXTOR drive was only 2 yrs old (80gb), and the new drive is 250gb.

I can't see any settings in the bios to detect the sata drive.

Any ideas guys?

Many Thanks


A:Asus K8V SE and SATA Drive detection

IIRC these old VIA sets with the VT8237 southbridge did not upport booting from SATA. I coud well be wrong and it might be that you have to install the VIA motherboard drivers for the SATA to function. Either way it is indeed a pain.

I would reinstall the old drive and make sure the SATA drivers are indeed there. Then I would reclone the new drive from there and stand back and see what explodes.

Good luck.

Im upgrading my hardware,so I'm wondering if it's a good idea to buy a WD HDD 640GB SATA III,and connect it to my mobo.

My mobo is Asus M2N,it has SATA connectors,and I have connected one WD SATA II HDD,it works just fine.

I'd like to know if this mobo supports SATA III HDDs.My priority at the moment is not full speed and advantages of SATA III HDDs,but the question if I could use it on this mobo.It's ok if my mobo downgrades HDD's capablities,cause I'm planning to replace the mobo in the next few months.

Have'nt found any topic that's dealing with this kind of issue,so if I'm wrong,I'd appreciate a link that describes the issue.

Looking forward to any response,thx.


A:WD SATA III 640GB HDD compatible with Asus M2N

TBH, Im not sure SATA 3 is really woth it for a mechanical HD.

I mean, they can not operate fast enough to saturate SATA 2, much less SATA 3.

Even a great number of SSDs, which are leaps and bounds faster, aren't really saturating SATA2. Although they are starting to now.

Perhaps others with more knowledge on the subject can provide insight of the advantages though.

From the specs I looked at, it doesnt appear it has SATA 3 ports. You may find out for sure in the owners manual though.

I recently installed a SATA drive with a SIIG SATA controller on my A7V133 mobo and have been using the drive a few weeks for backup files. Now I want to use it as my boot drive, but Win XP Setup can't detect it. Before booting from the XP CD, I enabled SCSI in BIOS, set SCSI as second in boot sequence (after CD-ROM) and entered the SI website's latest driver when called for in Setup. The setup message is "there is no disk in this drive" and it labels the drive as "157066 MB disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on si3112 (MBR)." The Asus has a RAID option, but I'm not sure whether this would be an option since the drive runs off its own card. Appreciate suggestions!

A:Asus A7V133 and SATA drive

You should have gotten a CD with your motherboard drivers on it, if you look through there, there should be raid/scsi chipset drivers for your OS. Copy those to Floppy ( preferably just the version you need).

When you start installation of XP hit F6 to install 3rd party scsi drivers, after some time it will ask you to select your device. Put the floppy in and select your device and it will read off your floppy ( it should display your chipset controller).

Then it should take you to your partition screen, install the os on your SATA drive.

I know youre not using raid ( I think),but my promise chipset controls both my raid and my SATA drives. Should be the same for your chipset. Unfortunatly, you have to "preinstall" the drivers to full functionality, to use part of it.

Its much easier if you just slipstream through. You can do everything all in one swoop, raid drivers, sp2....

Hi I have a system with an ASUS P AD -E Premium mobo When I first set up the system I installed two identical GB SATA drives on the Intel ICH R controller I set it up for RAID I never had a chance to compare a RAID setup with standard SATA in AHCI mode so I just assumed that RAID was better performance old on ASUS SATA mobo than standard SATA Now almost yrs later I have decided to replace the two old HDD s with one SATA II GB It s a Western Digital WD AALS It has a MB buffer compared with the old drives with only MB buffer All of these SATA performance on old ASUS mobo drives are RPM My first thought was to buy another of the GB drives SATA performance on old ASUS mobo so I could set up another RAID system but after reading about RAID and controllers I realize that RAID on my system is probably not worth the cost of the second HDD and I don t need another GB of storage Since both the Intel ICH R and the SIl controllers are on the PCI not the PCIE bus the max transfer rate I can get is about MB sec When I ran HD Tune for Read I found some interesting things First when I am running a single SATA II drive the GB on the Intel controller it maxes out at about MB Sec But as the test progresses say after the first minute of testing the rate drops way down to about MB sec When I run the same test on the two old drives configured as RAID on the same controller the rate is more steady at or near MB Sec but there are frequent spikes downward to MB sec I have found that some of the spikes are due to my running Norton IS while the test is in progress Shutting down the IS does reduce the number of downward spikes but does not eliminate them If I try the single SATA drive on the SIl I get read rate of only MB sec and it also drops off as the test runs I understand that there is a burst feature built into the Intel and probably the SIl controller but that is good only for what it says bursts of data What I have concluded is that if I really want great disk transfer rate I am going to have to replace my mobo to one that has the RAID controller s on the PCIE bus At the same time upgrading the mobo would give me the capability of installing a multi-core processor more RAM etc Am I correct about it being a waste of money to buy another GB drive identical to the one I just installed and configure it for RAID on the Intel ICH R Also if someone could explain why the transfer rate drops off on the SATA configuration as the test runs Thanks for your help FW nbsp

A:Different Sata drives in Asus p4p800

If this is your board
then you should be able to plug the second drive into the other sata hotplug and it will be seen as a slave drive since the boot files are already on the current drive and the hard part is over, you have the raid drivers already set because the raptor is booting XP. If you want to improve performance install just XP on the raptor, and make a partition on the 80 gig and make a program files folder and custom install all your programs to the other drive so the os runs independant of the programs you run.

I have a ASUS K8V SE MOBO which supports SATA primary and secondary drives, as well as RAID configruations. I currently have Windows XP with a 160 GIG IDE Drive as primary. I bought a SATA drive (300 G, WD) in the hope of making it a secondary drive for data.

The MOBO comes with PRomise RAID controller, but I am still unable to setup the new SATA drive. I have enabled the Promise controller in the BIOS Setup, but as the machine boots, the controller reports on Devices found. I have connected the drive to the Primary SATA connector.

Has anyone had similar experiences?. Can anyone guide me as to how to set up this drive as a Primary SATA drive.

A:Asus A7V8X-X and SATA hdd issue

Welcome to TechSpot Forums

You're searching the drive from the PCI adapter's BIOS, right? Additional controller cards have their own BIOSes which are (usually) accessible after power-on self test, before the OS loads, there should be a screen saying which key to press to get there.

Hi to all, im new on this forum and i was hopping you can help me.
I have a ASUS P4P800X-S Motherboard on my pc i know that is a lil bit old but it still works great. Im using 2 hdd IDE on it and I was thinking to install a hdd SATA .
Is that possible ????
Thanks to all of you.

A:HDD SATA on motherboard ASUS P4P800S-X

Yes but it is pointless. You dont get the benefit of a sata confuration b/c (unless your board had sata ports) you'll buy a converter to take ide connection to a sata connection but you're limited to the speed and features of IDE since that is the connection on the board.

Hu Guys

My 1st thread. I hope you all can help. I have build a few pc's and i always have trouble installing the sata drivers.
My friends pc has visat 32bit and i have already installed drivers from the mobo disk. I still cant enable the satas.

dvd writer plays but doesnt record and sata wont allocate my 2nd HD. Bios sees all of sata hardware but when i goto disk manager, it stays black and the new simple volume is shaded!!

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

My old PATA HDD recently died on me so along with a bit of required repairs to my watercooling system i replaced it with a 80Gb SATA HDD. however im having problems with installing it on my ASUS P4P800-E deluxe motherboard.
ive got 378ATA drivers and 378RAID drivers, are they the right ones and which one do i use?
i also have the problem that i have 2 SATA DVD-Writers which involves using the RAID SATA that even possible?

i just need a simple guide on what to do; the motherboard has 4 SATA connectors but 2 are RAID and i need to connect 1 SATA HDD and 2 SATA DVD-Writers


A:SATA HDD problems with an ASUS P4P800-E


Why would you need 2 DVD-Writers ?
Sata boards only have 2 connections.1 for a HD and recently SATA DVD-RW's
This would be obvious in the Motherboard manual or asus website descriptions of this mbd.
But installing Sata Raid drivers is very tricky.It requires a Raid driver
floppy disk.
The files are probably on the mbd cd.and instructions.
Somewhere in the process you use F6 to activate the floppy drivers.
So read the manual and cd contents for more.
Best i can do.
I paid $25 to have mine installed.

I'm looking at a Sabrent EC-UEIS7 Hard Drive Enclosure - 3.5" IDE/SATA to USB 2.0, eSATA in order to use one of my now internal Sata drives as an 'external' backup device.

If I turn the external power off on the back of the external Sata enclosure with my extra old Sata connected in it...will that drive then be safe from any virus/malware attacks from within my system (or online) even if the external enclosure Sata cable is still connected to the main PC?

I'm assuming if I have the power switch switched off on this external enclosure with my Sata drive...then nothing can read/write to the Sata drive in this external case ?


A:Safety of internal 3.5 Sata IDE in external Sata case for backups

Yes, that is correct. The HDD must have power and data to function in any capacity.

If there is no power going to any drive then they can not read or write anything even if the data cable is attached.

You have to enter the RAID BIOS and configure the drive as a RAID0 array or something similar. If it doesn't detect the drive in the RAID BIOS either, look over all your cables. Make sure you have power to the hard drive and suchlike.

this is an ASUS X83V notebook - Setting the SATA operation to 'compatible' mode at installation, Win8 CP installed fine, no hitches. Switched BIOS to Enhanced/full mode and it fails.

I recall this sort of problem from XP installs where tricks were needed to support SATA, but I do not recall this on Seven. Will Win 8 not detect the right controller, fetch the right driver? Do I need to manually force-install, reboot, reselect enhanced mode, and go from there?

Is this so-called "enhanced" mode switching the storage over to AHCI mode? If so, you have to edit the registry first before being able to do that.

I read an article stating there?s very little difference between SATA cables. So I tried it for myself.

This screenshot shows the slight differences in speed; likely most of you already knew this. In testing, an 11GB file transferred in 10 seconds using either cable. Vid link shows detail of test for those interested. May not want to toss old cables.

A:FYI Only - Discovered only slight diff betw SATA-1 vs. SATA-3 cables

I have noticed the same. MaximumPC magazine did an exhaustive test and came to the same conclusion, a SATA cable is a SATA cable. SATA III cables have a (sometimes annoying) latch on them.

I experienced similar oddities with a DFI X58 motherboard when I was setting up to dual-boot Windows 7 and ubuntu 9.10. The most stable and workable solution I found was to connect the boot drive (C: drive) to the SATA-0 connection. It had been on SATA-3, but GRUB gets confused in spite of my attempts to fix it logically by editing the configuration files. The best choice was to move around my SATA cables to make the boot drive the first one and GRUB and Windows 7 were very happy. I have also read that GRUB and Windows 7 can get confused with SATA DVD drives in the mix too. I don't have that on this machine, but do have that on another all SATA system that I dual-boot with GRUB for ubuntu 8.10. Note that the older GRUB worked better for me than the newer one.

"there is a grey residue that will only come off by rubbing with a cloth] cpu"

That is a thermal compound that ensures a good thermal transfer between the cpu and the cpu heatsink. If a cpu is removed, the old compound should be removed and a THIN layer of new compound applied.

"I also get a "spoken message" without speakers that the failure is due to "overclocking" on occaision"

Asus motherboards have a 'crash-free' Bios and it can activate if your motherboard gets a major fault/shock or runs into psu issues. That message is one of the signs something has happened.

Voltages are only one consideration - temperature is just as important.

Given the age of that motherboard, Everest would provide a good reading for both volts and temps;

Install Everest, run it and click on file, preferences, report and UNCHECK 'include debug information in the report' and click OK.

Then bring up Computer, Sensor, click Report, quick report-sensor, plain text and copy and paste everything under [Sensor] here.

You should save to file also.

Do you have the power cable plugged into the drive as well? If the computer is powered on, can you push the button to open the tray? If not, then it would definitely be a power issue. It may seem like a simple step, but I'm only asking because you didn't mention it...only the SATA data cable.

A:SATA Raid on Asus SK8V not flying with XP

To simplify it, it looks like the main problem I need to solve now is that Windows XP is not booting from the SATA drives, whether as a Raid 1 or as single stand-alone drives. :suspiciou

Hi everyone. I am new to this board and I need your expertise. I am building a new computer using Asus P5AD2-E Premium motherboard, Intel 775LGA 3.2 Ghz, Geforce 6600GT, 500W power supply and so on. I wanted to know whether or not this motherboard will support SATA II hard drives such as Hitachi T7K250 (250 MB) or not. Thanks for the help.

Hello Everyone Ok Deluxe PC Sata Drive Asus Issues DL - - I m totally frustrated I Asus - PC DL Deluxe - Sata Drive Issues have a PC DL Deluxe mother board in which I was using a gig Sata drive without any issues I had gig sata hard drives kicking around so I decided to buy more sata cables to connect them to my computer Well after plugging them in only one of the extra drives works Now I know for sure all of the drives work And it s some kind of issue with the sata port things on my computer When this computer was first built for me I did have raid and I knew that some drivers had to be downloaded quot RAID quot quot PROMISE quot those words stick out in my head and installed with a diskette so the drives would be seen or setup with raid Well since then I ve wiped my computer and no longer use RAID I only want to use these drives as NORMAL hard drives So when I connected them all I didn t think I would need to do anything but I guess I am wrong Can someone please help me I have no clue what to do I m totally lost nbsp

A:Asus - PC DL Deluxe - Sata Drive Issues

It sounds like you need to reset your BIOS so that the other SATA drives are enabled. Go into the BIOS setup at boot time by repeatedly tapping "Del" (on my computer anyway) as the computer starts the boot cycle. Under one of the headings (Advanced BIOS Features is mine) you will see the 1st boot device etc. Probably the 3rd and 4th are disabled or set to Network. Just enable. Then save and exit the BIOS.

Hey all-

Here's my situation:
Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
2xHitachi 250GB SATA Drives
1xWD 40GB IDE (Which I want out)
1280MB RAM
...other stuff that's not important...

My goal:
XP Pro on the primary SATA drive, booting to that drive, and having the other SATA drive free for misc data. No IDE hard drives.

My problem:
The computer will not boot without the IDE hard drive. With the IDE in, it will boot into windows running off of SATA1.

When the IDE is removed, the system will go through the boot devices and fail to boot.

Anyone know how to get the ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe to boot to SATA?

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
I have recently built a system using an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe mobo.
A few years ago a 20 GIG HDD was decent but now with the much larger HDD's it is concidered pretty small.
I am thinking of purchasing a 160 ~ 200 GB SATA HDD.
I am currently using the 20 GIG "IDE" HDD .
Could one of you "Pro's" tell me:
(1) If I purchase a SATA can I still use the 20 GB IDE HDD ?
(2) Are there any programs out there that I can transfer all the contents of the 20 GB IDE HDD to the SATA HDD ?
(3) Will I be creating a headache for myself setting up the SATA HDD ?
(4) Will the SATA make a noticable difference ?
Any information will be appreciated.
I am new to the world of SATA.
Thank you.
Rick M.

A:Asus P4C800-E Deluxe // (1) IDE HDD -Adding SATA

It doesn't look like running both drives is an issue if you are using Windows 2000 or XP.

From the Manual:

In a legacy operating system (DOS, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows NT) environment, using the Serial ATA connectors will disable the ICHR chipset support to one of the IDE channels (either primary or secondary channel).Click to expand...

I would not recommend using one SATA drive and one PATA drive if you want to set up RAID 0. The speeds should be the same on all drives used in a raid array.

Check out pages 2-23 and 2-24 of the manual. It seems to indicate that you can use them together.

If you don't have the manual you can download it here.

Hope this helps.

Hi having problems! On a new install using Asus maximus VII ranger MB. Purchased a crucial m500 M.2 sata ssd. Fitted to the MB and changed the BIOS allowing M.2 usage. Tried to install window 8.1 64 bit oem. Message no storage device deteched. Any ideas please

A:Will a crucial M.2 sata work with ASUS Ranger MB?

I'm running a Crucial MX100 256 GB SSD on my ASUS M4N68T-M V2 ?ATX Motherboard. Does it show up in the BIOS correctly? What SATA Port is it connected to? Some motherboards have a RAID function and a special controller just for it. If connected to that SATA controller it could be a driver issue. Did you try doing the custom install option? That option may let you partition and format the drive. You shouldn't have to but it couldn't hurt to try it.

A:Changing from SATA RAID to SATA AHCI - Help needed!

You have a few things happening here, 1st your Win7 is probably an OEM (Originaly came w/the system) andassuck is tiedto the original mobo & can'tbe moved.
2nd, you have 1 sys w/ a core2quad processor, and the other has an I5. This means the mobo & memory are different, you have a different setof drivers so thr=e DX4860 will not boot with the older drivers. Normallythis would take aclean install, but being an OEM version - you would need therecovery discsfromthe DX4860.

I'm wanting to upgrade to a better mainboard. I don't know much about SATA, but I've been using a SATA I hard drive very successfully through a pci controller card.

My question: If I get a new motherboard with SATA II headers, will it readily accept my SATA I hard drive? I can see how the reverse might not work, that is, not being able to connect a SATA II hard drive in a SATA I header, but maybe I'm wrong on that...?

A:Will SATA II mobo headers accept SATA I drive?

Yes, sata 3gb/s ports(commonly called sata II), are designed to be backward compatible. I'm using a sata I hd on my sata 3gb/s port on my chaintech vnf4/ultra, so yeah, it works.

You can always use one of these PCI SATA adapter cards:

A computer as old as you're describing will likely have an old type standard PCI slot, and NOT a PCI-E (PCI express). be certain to verify which slot you have, before you make a purchase. These are two entirely different interfaces, which are not interchangeable.

I have 2 IDE HDs installed and added SATA drive lately. SATA runs in IDE mode in CMOS. Problem is, even though SATA drive is recognized by BIOS, Disk Manager, Norton Ghost & System Works, it doesn't show in My Computer, causing problems with saving and opening files. Tried a couple of tricks (changing the drive letter,disconnecting & reconnecting the drive, reformatting etc. ) nothing seems to work. I use this SATA drive for storage and for now I have to drag the files down there manually.
I don't know if it's of any importance, but I have nVidia GeForce graphics card onboard.

Hey guys,

I just purchased a samsung sata dvdrom - this is an upgrade from my old failing IDE drive. My motherboard (an Asus A8V Deluxe) has 2 sata connectors, and another 2 raid sata connectors - the 2 regular connectors are being used up by HDD's...

The question is, can I use one of the Raid Sata's for the dvdrom? (I've tried this already with no luck, I'm wondering if there are any bios settings that'll help with this?)

If this isn't possible, can I plug the hdd's into the raid sata's and not use the raid functionality?

Thanks for your help, I look forward to replies!

A:[SOLVED] Sata vs Raid Sata? DVDRom not recognized

No the raid sata port need a raid driver and won't work with optical drives, you would be able to use the non-boot hard drive on it however and put the DVD drive on the standard sata port. Unless you already have the hard drives in a raid config.

Now I am getting greedy and thinking about doubling my gains with a SATA III controller card. I have been reading online and I am seeing indications that I may not get much if any speed boost that way. Would those of you experienced with doing what I am contemplating please chime in and tell me if you achieved improvement and if so what card did you use? I am running Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Home, one on each ssd, no RAID is involved.

hmm, strange - have you formatted your hard drives already? Do you have Win XP with SP2 - SP2 is needed to recognize large hard drives.
I don't know how complicated it would be but if all else fails maybe undo the raid configuration format your hard drives (if they are not already) then do the raid thing. I am a beginner so these thougths/ideas might be irrelevant.

They sometimes work and sometimes they don't. To make things worse your motherboard is really old and uses a VIA chipset which had a lot of compatibility issues.
