You don’t need to boot to the HDD to get any files you need. Now, you could just get an SATA drive and be done with it, but in case you’re still wanting to troubleshoot, try an older 40 wire IDE cable.

I will have to look for a linux live DVD.

Check the BIOS to see if the controller’s enabled. This thread is locked.

I did this and all was ok with the new drive the installation worked and the new drive is running ok. I went into device manager Vista Home Basic 64 bit and it is not recognized. It still worked but was too loose. Sun Mar 22, 6: Find More Posts by bigmck. Similar help and support threads.


If yours is working, I wouldn’t worry about it now that you have changed it. But now I have since read that I should have made the bios change before installing windows nad should not be done after the install, So do I need to reinstall windows 7 with the bios changes to treat sata as AHCI before I install or will it work ok it seems to be ok but im not sure now.

I did not see any of the drives being recognized in the bios. So you’re saying you don’t need windows media center? The time now is With that information, it goes back, and I’d dare them to say no.

Thank you, Microsoft Community. Thanks for marking this as the answer.

PATA dvd drive not recognized by Asus P6T….

It will answer all of your questions. Someone mentioned that clearing the CMOS might resolve the isue.

The dvd drive shows that it has power, opens the tray and everything. I know that it is several years old, but since everything works, I really don’t think that the MB is the issue.


I called Asus tech support this ass and determined what I had feared, that the IDE connection was trashed. What about clearing the CMOS?
