a few days ago i decided to install debian (linux os). so i placed another hdd (old seagate barracuda 7200.7 st3200822as) in my system. but when i started the debian install, the hdd didn't show up. i went into my bios but it didn't show up there either... but when i boot my ssd with windows, the hdd does show up and i can use it as if everything works fine. i've already tried to connect the hdd to other sata slots but it's always the same
anybody here who might know what's goin on? thanks

After Windows detects your drive, can BIOS then see the drive after a warm reboot (Ctrl-Alt-Del)? If so, then it may be that your drive is powering up in standby (PUIS).
