I'm having trouble booting up from my HDD. It's a SATA HDD plugged right into the motherboard... I have played with the BIOS setting for a while now, but can't seem to get it to boot up. Can anyone who has this motherboard help me out? I've gotten to the point of it saying,

"Primary channel: IDE not found..."
"Secondary channel: IDE not found..."

From what I can see, those boards don't have Sata.
What are you using to connect?

A google search on the name provided, gave me this model name "GA-8INXP", which apparently have a sata controller onboard.

IF this is the right board, I recommend you read the manual, for your bios settings.
get the manual here: http://www.gigabyte.sg/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1597#manual

Or at least confirm if it is the right board, then I (or somebody else) can help explain what to change, and possibly where to find it. :)

Thank you very much :D

AH! Yes! It works. Seriously. You. Lifesaver. Multiple thanks.
