let me start from the beginning.
I got a new motherboard "GA-8IHXP"
The mother board is not detecting my hard drive.
I tried everything everyone said to try and it did not work.
So someone said try changing the "Boot delay time" or "IDE delay time".
So i tried, but I can't find in the bios where to change it.
The hard drive is good.
I tried using the hard drive in a different computer and it works.
I tried using the hard drive is the new computer with my old hard drive and it works.
But my new motherboard is not detecting the new hard drive.
Which brings me back to changing the "delay time"
sorry for the long overview.

check on the hard drive manufacturers site , for jumper settings , i had a similar problem , when i changed from k7s5a mobo to msi kt4v-l . the k7s5a would boot , run ok with jumpers set to master, BUT the msi mobo had to have the hard drive set to neutral !! you may think it would make no difference , but boy does it ,ITS SO FAST NOW - speedy gonzales cant keep up!!!
asus h87m-e, i3 4130, 4gb ddr3 , 320gb hd , dvdrw ,coolermaster 500w power, zalman z3 plus case ,
do you have a good quality sheilded cable? emi can cause the same problems as an intermitantly bad cable....is your machine parked next to a huge crt display?
Be sure that the blue end of the cable is on the mobo and if its a 3 end cable then be sure that your master device is at the very end and slave in the middle.....I have had numerous calls from people to replace their drives for them and then when I get there they simply have the cables installed wrong.
I have also come across numerous drives where the printed label for the jumper conflicts with the stamped explantion just above the jumper. Always check the hard drive manufacturers website just to confirm jumper configs.
It is weird I tried my Maxtor hard drive and it worked.
then I tried my new Western and know it works, but it still gives me that error but it will boot up now.
I don't see anything wrong but I still get that boot up error.
I check the jumper and tried all the configuration and still get that error.
I bought new double shielded cable, updated my Bios and drivers.
reinstalled the OS as well, but I still get that error.
