The download version of the manual had 9 appendices, A thru I. This is a common problem I know, but this time it’s doing my head in. Well while trying to update the bios from floppy I got a failure to read disk error I just built this system and in the process of loading XP I have come across the following problem. I am thinking maybe this motherboard is not right. So, let’s forget everything and start all over again.

Jan edited Jan I kb7 tried flashing the bios also. Apparently it’s a common issue with WD drives, jumper settings are fussy. Sign In or Register to comment.
I tried using the floppy disk with the sata drivers on it on the xp setup. The weird thing is that I see the drive listed as a serial ch0 master during the second boot screen but the drive is not recongnized within windows CNET’s Forum saha storage is the best source for finding help, troubleshooting, sta getting buying advice from a community of experts.
Any help would be wonderful. I’ve had the safa problem, with the abit kv7, it’s a real bugger, i think it’s a problem with the bios, i,ve tried updating mine, i was on bios id14, tried to update to id20, but had problems with memory dump error messages, i’ve just bulit another computer, with an elite nforce4m-a mainboard with 2 western digital gb sata drives, that works fine, drives detected ect, if i were you i’d get a new mainboard, and dump the abit!
Didn’t mean to eata anyone – just that my motherboard manual makes no mention of SATA 1. This post has been flagged and will be reviewed by our staff. Tried to take of that jumper.

Do hit F6 when asked and don’t worry aata it will only ask for the SATA drivers again when starting to install windows, after coppying all the files from the CD.
Can’t see SATA controller in Abit KV7
Ran the MAxtor MAxblast util to format drive. Many thanks for any advice you can give me.
If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
In this instance, I took the jumper off completely and the drive was recognised.
Trouble is, I don’t seem to have that option, it just isn’t there. I am leaning towards taking this MB back to store. Sign In Become an Icrontian.

Right now I am just using it as extra space, but I will eventually put windows on it. I just built this system and in the process of loading XP I have. Finally got the update to work.
