You can do that by doing the jumper settings procedure, you can find the steps from the user manual of your unit

120G hard disk doesn't work on p4m266a mother board


The hard disk maybe faulty especially if the BIOS cannot detect the hard disk.
Try connecting the hard disk into an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. If this computer cannot detect the USB hard drive adapter as an external storage device then this hard drive is faulty.

Getting boot error message


The error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard disk has failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to check if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and files on this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Try the WD USB hard drive in another computer. If you can access your data on another computer then backup your data.
If the WD USB hard drive is faulty then -
It is not possible to recover data from faulty hard drivesby mortals such as you and I.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty and damaged hard drivesBUT they wll charge an arm and a leg for their services.

Hello,Please check the BIOS to see if the SATA ports are enabled. Older boards will disable the sata ports in the BIOS by default. To enter the BIOS, hit the DEl key as soon as you boot the PC.
If ports are enabled, then you probably have to format the drive.Heres how:1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage.
2. Under Storage, click Disk Management on the left pane.
STEP 3 - Format the device / drive / MP3 player
1. Right-click on the 1 TB drive you want to format then select Format.Windows will not recognize the drives file system and will mount it with a drive letter. ex; E:

When I start my computer I get the message PXE E61 Media Test Failure:check cable. Please, help me.


Make sure first boot device is NOT set to network in the bios or maybe the hdd has gone and its looking for a operatin system to load Check cable connections (reseat),
Check jumpers on hard drive for Master/Slave or CS settings,
Check BIOS settings for boot order,
And lastly have your BIOS rescan your HD or reset your BIOS to defaults.

Put 'Hard Drive C:' before 'Network' in the boot order
(If the hard drive does not appear in the boot order, that's why the PXE network boot agents start)

Note : Check that the hard drive is seen in the BIOS setup

Hard Drive media Problem :S


Presumably, you have an "internal" hard-drive that the BIOS is detecting.

If it is the _only_ disk-drive in your computer, remove it,
and temporarily connect it as a "slave" drive in some other computer.
Then:

Click: Start
Click: Control Panel
Click: Classic View
Click: Administrative Tools
Click: Computer Management
Click: Storage
Click: Disk Management (Local)

Does the drive show there? Is it listed as "Healthy" ?
Does it have a drive-letter assigned?

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.
