Older SATA drive issues. Tags: Western Digital SATA Storage Last response: January 2, 2013 6:55 AM in Storage Share conkerman January 2, 2013 6:49:28 AM 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?
