I have a strange problem that my PX10000g does not seem to work with my SSD SATA2 disk (A-DATA S592 32GB). The disk is correctly recognized in BIOS as IDE master but if I try to install an OS (WinXP/Fedora/Ubuntu), it always fails during formatting or writing installation files.
Then, after further reboots, the disk is not found in Bios until I unplug and plug again disk's power chord. After that it is again recognized.
I used an old IDE drive and installed WinXP on it. Everything went fine with this drive. So I tried to format the sata drive from Win (just in case) but it failed as well.
But (!) the sata disk is working correctly with different mobo and it is also working with mine if I use sata->usb converter and plug it in an usb port.
It just does not work connected directly to sata port.
A possible cause could be that PX10000g supports only SATA1 disks and mine is SATA2 and it cannot downgrade (it hasn't got any jumpers). But I might be wrong with this. Also a weird thing is that VX700 chipset on the mobo supports SATA2 but mobo's manual says only SATA1 is supported.
Is there anything I can try?
Thanks in advance
