    Angry hd not present

    ok, I played with the BIOS, made some changes, dunno really what I've made, but I couldn't boot whith the iDeneb DVD.

    in BIOS, i get to Integrated Peripherals -> onChip Sata Type I restablished to IDE (in ACHI there was no way to boot from the iDeneb DVD) so I tried in native IDE mode...

    iDeneb DVD boots...
    I go with: -x -v cpus=4 busratio=20

    after a while it could get to the OSX disk utility...

    the thing is: it cannot detect the first Hard Drive (detects the second just fine). it just sees the second!!! I dunno what to do...
    it has to detect the HD

    what can I do??? shoud I set any initial parameter before booting with the iDeneb DVD?
    help me please


    btw: windows XP boots just fine.

    Hi,
    Recheck your BIOS settings, SATA needed to be set to AHCI mode.
    If you still have trouble with 2 hard drives, remove the second drive and swap its cable to the first drive, then proceed with installation.

    Good luck,

    if I set my BIOS in AHCI mode, there's no way it can boot with the iDeneb DVD..




    this is how it is set now and the DVD can boot:


    see the options (if I change this to AHCI, it can't boot the DVD):


    ah, just in case, this is my boot order:



    well... I tried again...
    boot from the DVD... (in Native IDE)
    select language...
    and when I get to the disk utilities... it only detects one HDD, the secondary HDD


    I went to profile and gues what!, two HDDs!!!



    I don't know what to do! cannto set AHCI mode, so DVD won't boot!
    what am I doing wrong?

    should I keep going like this? what happens with the 1st Hdd??
    help me please!

    Hi,
    Thank you for those pictures. It made it easier.
    People always say a picture is worth a thousand words, so you can count how many you have there

    Let me check something real quick. Is your DVD SATA or IDE?

    Alright,
    Did you notice that your 1st drive and DVD are in the same bus. Your 2nd drive is different, and also BIOS said SATA port 4,5 are IDE. If your BIOS assigns port 4,5 in IDE mode and if your 1st drive and DVD are plugged in those ports then in AHCI mode, it won't work.

    I would check those SATA connectors in your motherboard again (look at your board manual), and try to change all SATA connectors to number 1,2 and 3.
    And then you can retry settings to AHCI.

    Let me know.

    Good luck.

    Idon't know how to check, so I looked under the Device Manager in MyPC..

    it reads: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40

    the controller details has theese:

    IDE\CdRomHL-DT-ST_DVDRAM_GH22NS40________________NL02____
    IDE\HL-DT-ST_DVDRAM_GH22NS40________________NL02____
    IDE\CdRomHL-DT-ST_DVDRAM_GH22NS40________________
    HL-DT-ST_DVDRAM_GH22NS40________________NL02____
    GenCdRom


    and if I look with Speccy Piriform, I find this:
    Optical Drives
    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40
    Media Type CD-ROM
    Name HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS40
    Availability Running/Full Power
    Capabilities Random Access, Supports Removable Media
    Config Manager Error Code Device is working properly
    Config Manager User Config FALSE
    Drive G:
    Media Loaded FALSE
    SCSI Bus 0
    SCSI Logical Unit 0
    SCSI Port 0
    SCSI Target Id 1
    Status OK


    in CPU-Z I found Nothing related to DVD-ROM

    is this IDE???

    Ok.
    I've read your motherboard manual, Rev 1.0.

    It does say change the SATA settings for port 4/5 to as SATA (default IDE), then change SATA mode to AHCI.

    Retry that to see what happen.

    If not then just swap the SATA cable from 1st drive to 2nd drive.

    It's very late now and I need to go to sleep.
    Let me know how it goes.
