    Im building three new computers. Have three asus p4d800- I motherboards
    and Three Maxtor 120gig SATA drives. I am having a problem with the
    computers bios recognizing the harddrives. I have tried the Maxtor recovery
    disk, but it was unsuccessful finding the drive. The Harddrive are
    operational I have test them on another machine and bio find them instantly.
    The board also detects other Maxtor and western digital Sata drives. It seem
    the motherboard im currently using cannot detect this drives

    Im looking for help or other suggestions to try and possible get these
    drives to work.

    Is there an available bios update for your motherboard?
    Good luck!

    Some boards have a jumper to enable SATA. Check your manual and see if
    yours is set correctly.
