Older SATA drive issues.

Happy new year all!

My new HTPC system is.

A10 5700
Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H
8GB DDR3 1866
500 GB WD Black 2.5 HDD (Win7 Home premium).
2TB WD Green (data).

This system works fine.

The issues I have is that I have a 2TB SATA drive (Spinpoint F2) in my old C2D HTPC that I want to swap over to the new PC. This drive contains just data (my ripped DVD VOBs).

The BIOS can't see this drive. I feel like I have tried everything.

AHCI on and off.
Legacy support only.
IDE mode.

Last time I tried to boot with this drive installed, the computer would not boot, and culminated with a reinstall of windows!

What am I missing here?

  1. P.S

    The Drive has been installed back in its old PC and works fine.

    Also, the BIOS does not seem to display properly through my AV reciever
