I was stuck by my Seagate HDD yesterday. Barracuda 7200.11 500GB SATA II HDD Model: ST3500320AS Firmware: SD15 Same as you possibly. It does not show up during BIOS AHCI Drive init. Checking Internet, it is a firmware issue. My Seagate is an OEM version. Seagate provides NO data recovery!!! If yours are Retailer version, Seagate will possibly save you. Call Seagate to recover. I find a data recovery company to get all data back. I am waiting to get my data back hopefully. But It is expensive. If yours has critical data, it is better to find a data recovery company to help.
