Ok, so I purchased a computer and assembled it today and in the BIOS only one of my storage drives is detected, I have a Kingston SSD and a WD HDD, then when I switch the SATA cable the other drive it switches so I can only use one at a time, how do I get them both to work?

I have tried every combination within my power with the SATA cables and ports and still no luck.

Thanks,
Me

have you checked your bios settings to ensure that the SATA controllers are turned on? sometimes, to save time on boot up, they'll only have the primary controller turned on.
