Maxtor SATA Hard Drive / ASUS P4PE

By Psychoman ·
I just assembled a new computer (everything new) I have an Asus P4PE main board, and a Maxtor Diamond Plus 9 80G SATA harddrive. Bois is updated and sata is enabled, but when booting it searches for an IDE drive.

Boot up and enter BIOS setup.

Go to the PCI configuration page.

Set the On Board ATA device first switch to YES.

That should take care of it.

Looking further in the Asus manual, you may need to specify the drive in the IDE section of the Boot menu in BIOS settings.
