  1. I would try using the hardware software to set up the drive. I use maxblast 5.0, a free download; it will give you options to set up as a bootdisk or secondary data drive. Western digital also has it's own software. And check your hardrive cables; some of the old sata cables come loose easily.
  2. In the BIOS, make you sure that the HDD configuration is on JBOB, not on RAID or other.
  3. HDD is set to SATA i think and storage config. to AHIC, will check soon. Thanks. :)
  4. BUMP! any help, please :)
  5. Don't change to AHIC, must be JBOB. Also, put it on another SATA port, or in another PC to test that the HDD is good.
  6. yep will give it a go later :)
