Got the parts for my new rig earlier today, put it all together, started installing Win7 64
and found out there's nowhere to install it!!!
Went to BIOS, it doesn't see the SSD.
Updated BIOS to newest version, still nothing.
I think maybe I just miss some knowledge regarding the BIOS settings but I couldn't find out what what it is even after searching for hours on the web.
The Vertex is the only storage device on this baby.
1. Besides that everything seems to work fine.
2. Vertex is plugged to SATA2 and power properly.
3. BIOS detects DVD drive alright.
Intel Core i5 2500k
G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR31600 2x2GB
OCZ Vertex 2 60GB
Scythe Mugen 2 Rev B
Antec Two Hundred
Corsair GS 600W
Two things come to mind.
First, plug said drive into another machine. If it isn't seen there either, try a new data cable and a new power cable. If it still isn't seen, RMA it.
I don't think that the Gigabtye boards are guilty of this sin, but some BOIS setups require that you enable the individual ports that have SATA drives in them.
