  1. Try setting SATA to IDE in BIOS and test. What motherboard and what SATA ports using for drives?

    ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard, that is the motherboard. and when you ask for what ports im using you mean on the board right?
  3. Yes, but it doesn't matter, since AMD.
    Are you using SATA 3 cables (the ones that came with the board) for connecting the drives?
    Have you tried setting SATA to IDE in BIOS? Does it boot?

    no im not using those cables, should i? and im going to try setting SATA to IDE now
  5. Yes, you have to use those cables. Turn off the power before switching the cables.

    i just realized what the problem was,the board i have is only a SATA board where as my hardrive is a IDE hard drive so i have to get a IDE to SATA converter.
