WD10EARS capacity detected as 0mb in BIOS
Nov 19, 2010, 7:24 AM
i just purchased a WD10EARS 1TB recently to use as my second hdd and
i have a ST3500312CS 500gb as my boot drive,
the first thing i experience after i installed my WD, the booting process is exremely long, usually it only takes less than 2 mins to boot, but now its takes more than 5 mins to boot,
then i checked the bios, i see that the WD10EARS is detected but the capacity is reduced to a mere 0mb, and not detected at all in the disk management,
i've tried it in my friend pc, and it detected with full capacity, i tried copying, and formating, it works fine, but when i installed back in my pc it still detected as 0mb
i've tried atola's hdd capacity restore, but instead showing near 1tb capacity, it shows
as full capacity
and i havent restored it yet,
my motherboard: GA-MA-770T-ES3, my friend also use gigabyte mb but i forgot the serial

Did you try a different SATA port and/or cable?
