hi, as the title says, my BIOS recognizes my hard drive, but I can't boot for some reason.
My motherboard is a M4a79xtd EVO and my hard drive is a Samsung Spinpoint F3 OEM that i got off newegg
I've checked the power and sata cables and nothing seems wrong, and i can hear the hard drive spinning.
So is it because i have a crappy hard drive? or did I do something wrong in trying to recognize the hard drive?
You'll need to provide more info. Did you format the drive and install an OS?
not yet. I basically just built it and when i started it up, it didn't recognize the hard drive, even though the BIOS recognized it.
I tried to install an OS, but because the hard drive wasn't recognize, I couldn't.
The error messages i'm getting are
"Hard disk is not detected"
"Reboot and select boot device..."
