BIOS doesn't see SSD Tags: SSD BIOS SATA Storage Last response: April 18, 2011 7:38 PM in Storage Share shaunlaverty April 18, 2011 7:03:22 PM Hi There! I have an ASUS A8E-N motherboard with the last/latest BIOS, 1013. Chipset is nVidia nForce 4. I purchased a Kingston 64GB SSD (SV100S2/64GZ) to load Windows 7 (64 bit) on and use as the boot drive. Unfortunately, after removing an existing, unused SATA hard drive and plugging in the SSD, the BIOS does not see the SSD after a reboot. Unplugged the PC, and then tried again. No luck. I have two other SATA hard drives plugged in, and after swapping around ports/cables, no luck. There are no mode settings in the BIOS for SATA other then Enable/Disable. Shouldn't this thing just behave like any old SATA drive? Any suggestions are welcome!
