i am building a new computer and windows 7 does not see the ssd, agility 3 120gb, and will not install. i have tried swapping ports, new cables and ide and achi. the drive does show up in bios though. this is the only drive connected on a new build and fresh install .
with a new ssd you cant do the quick install of windows. you have to go into advance settings and remove the partion that there from the factory and then let windows make two new one.the data partion and the system restore partion. in till that does windows in quick mode wont see the sata drive.
the mobo is a gigabyte ga-z68xp-ud3, i am doing a new computer build, all new out of the box components. after switching boot order in bios to cd/dvd, i am installing a new oem copy of windows home premium, 64 bit. when the windows installer gets to the part where it is looking for a drive to install windows, it cannot find or detect the ssd. i have tried ports 0, and 1. the 6gb/sec ports. i also tried another of the sata ports. no go.
