I just installed an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with an i7 and 16 gigs of memory, as well as a new 128gig SSD.
The board posts up, but goes into the BIOS configuration. It cannot see any of the 3 HD's or the Optical drive connected to the SATA ports. I tested the power supply and cables and they are good, and my VGA card is OK. It is just anything connected to SATA.
Any suggestions? Does this MOBO have some obscure settings I need to change? BTW, I reset to default, no change.
