I have Crosshair V Formula Z and every time i connect the drive into any of the sata ports it just frezees at Post with
"0d" code that honestly doesnt help me at all.

Tried unplugging the drive and set to IDE Mode, still nothing.
The WD Caviar Black of my friend works just fine, and the only way to acces my drive is by connecting it using a usb adapter and plug it from behind while the OS is in my friend's drive

during the installation, click the advanced drive options link. From there delete all the partitions you find. If they say 'unallocated' then thats not a partition; its a representation of the space available to partition. From here if you want to use the entire drive make sure its all unallocated, select the drive, and click next.

Best solution
