My system only sees 1 hdd
Feb 19, 2013, 5:35 PM
I upgraded my bios to the latest version, but my system only sees 1 of my 2 hdds and tells me I have half the space.
What can I do to repair this?

O.K. MY system DOES see both HDDs, but it still only shows half of the 2 TBs that should be there. Any input?

Are you saying that the capacity of each 2TB drive is now being reported as 1TB?
If so, do you have a Gigabyte motherboard?

Is it a Seagate 7200.11 drive?

Very close. Both HDDs are 1 TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12

Seagate's 7200.11 and 7200.12 drives often fail with "0 LBAs".
There is a fix that sometimes works for the 7200.12. However, I would first obtain a terminal report before comtemplating any changes to the drive.

Maybe I can simply replace the bad HDD with an SSD. Possible?
