I just got my hands on a spanking new sata(2? - 3gb/s) HDD to use as my new sysdisk.
After I had Win7 installed on the bastard my system won't detect my other HDDs (sata1).
I'm running them on a Asus Formula III MB.
My BIOS will only detect my sysdisk, win7 will do the same (also in storage-management), all cables are checked and functional, the disks worked w/ my old configuration (winXP) and I haven't relocated any jumper settings on either disks.
I tried soft-resetting the CMOS (button-method).
If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate any help.
If you need any specifics about my system, I'll be happy to oblige.
Thank you in advance =)
PS: on a side not, can you connect a sata HDD on a sata ODD port? (Probably a silly question =P)
Have you tried connecting using a SATA to USB cable? or If unavailable do you happen to have a USB enclosure handy?
Another option in the Bios are you sure that SATA port1 is enabled?
Will try to look around for anything on mixed mode SATA and let you know if I come across anything
