i have a K8NS Pro and just got a SATA drive (120GB) when i plug the drive
in my current windows wont load, as in it wont even commence loading


there is 4 sata connections

SATA0_SB
SATA1_SB
SATA0_II
SATA1_II

if i plug the drive into SATA0_II OR SATA1_II it will detect and i can
install windows on it. (with no other drives present)
But if i commect the drive to SATA0_SB OR SATA1_SB it wont detect at all -
any idea why ??
could the motherboard be faulty ??
i have checked the bios settigns and ONBOARD SATA is enabled and SERIAL ATA
FUNCTION is set to base

and ideas would be great

thanks

The bios is kind of backwards on the GB - the onboard sata acutally
refers to the SATA0_II and SATA1_II you talk about. This is the add in
SATA. The SATA0 and SATA1 are the Nvidia sata connections, I beleive
they are actually set up in the IDE section of the bios (I had this MOBO
but not any more so I am trying to remember).
