Im trying to install 2x250GB disks in my pc.

I got OS on a SSD connected trough Intel's 6gb sata port.

Connected the 2 HDD's with the black intel Sata 2 ports.
But they just wont show up!

Im starting to get very frustrated by this problem.
Im starting to think that Z77 series left out support for older HDD's

Assuming the drives don't show up in Windows Explorer have you tried looking for them in Disk Management?
Click on Start
Type diskmgmt.msc
Press Enter
If you have done this, do they show up there?

Yes i have checked that many times, while testing IDE, AHCI and Raid modes in bios.
Non of theme shows the disks.

Are you familiar with the Z77 series.
I know theres a lot of ppl whos struggeling with this.
Hope there is a fix.

Would there be some kind of driver i could install for the disks?
I know whene u install win7 theres an option to load driver, perhaps theres a driver i can use that will help detect.

Have you tried other SATA ports?
