No IDE HDD Detected

Hello,

On my Asus Motherboard A8R-MVP with 4Gb Ram installed and 250GB SATA HDD.
From last 2 days i m getting this problem at POST

No IDE Waster H.D.D Detected. Press F1 to Continue.

What is the issue ? Also i checked the bios and all settings are set to default.

Please help me get past this issue.

regards

  1. Hi, Try moving the SATA HDD to a different SATA port.

    checked with all the 4 ports available
  3. I guess you have no IDE drive connected (or the DVD drive is IDE?). You can try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes).
    If still the same, it might be a storage controller issue.
  4. i dont have any IDE/PATA HDD or Optical Drive. (Everything is SATA)

    i have done the CMOS thing with jumper and Battery removing method also.But no luck.

    Some times after this POST, It gives error, it gave error DISK READ ERROR. Press Ctrl+ Alt+ Del
  5. Start with only one SATA drive connected (test with each drive). See which one gives the errror.

    yup.. tried all the possible combinations(1 drive,2 drive , diff ports , diff drives) but no luck.
  7. No other ideas. It might be a controller issue.
  8. Can you turn off the IDE port in the BIOS, since you don't need it anyway?
