  1. First off please make sure you have everything connected in the right place. Make sure you have power going to your HDD. Does the HDD have a operating system on it? If you go into your BIOS can you look under Hard disk drives and see if it is there. Make sure it is set to primary and make it your first boot device. Start there....if you have done this already we can explore from there
  2. Is the hard drive boot priority order set properly?
  3. thanx for lookin into the matter
    and yes i have checked it...the hdd does not it self get detected on the bios on restart...i even tried two other drives..and the same thing happens...i am thinking there is some problem with the mother board....if so what could the problem be?????
