Thanks for the reply,
I have tried setting the BIOS to RAID, ACHI, IDE and nothing worked.
I cant even hear the HD spinning which lead me to believe that it may be broken in the first place.
I have just flashed the BIOS to the latest version, 29th Jan so its very recent and nothing. The SATA ports on the motherboard are working as I have a SATA DVD Drive that works thru them all.
Any ideas ?
