I just purchased a Gigabyte Z77X-D3H. I have also just attached a Samsung SSD 840 Series however I can't make it work, I have updated all of the drivers for the Mobo and even updated the Bios to the f16 version. Thank you anyone who can help me.
What do you mean when you say " I have also just attached a Samsung SSD 840 Series however I can't make it work, I have updated all of the drivers for the Mobo and even updated the Bios to the f16 version."?
Are you trying to install Windows to the SSD? What are you trying to do? Please clarify.
Double check both your SATA and power connections to ensure they are firmly attached. Also, make sure all of your SATA ports are enabled in your BIOS and that the drivers are loaded for all SATA ports in Windows (many mobos will use Intel or AMD SATA controller ports and Marvell SATA controller ports, each using different drivers). Your mobo has both Intel and Marvell ports.
I swear I checked all my connections but it would appear that the power to my Drive was unplugged. Man that is awesome and stinks, because I spent about 3hrs working on this before I even came to this site to ask questions. I should know better, lvl 1 stuff. Well thank you for reminding me of the basics. COLGeek, you shorted my headache considerably.
