nanahachi Posted November 2, 2005 Posted November 2, 2005 Up until today, I couldn't get my new rig to post. But after RMA'ing the CPU and mobo, that problem has been resolved (see my other thread). However, now that I can get into the BIOS, the BIOS is not recognizing the fact that I have a WD Raptor (74gb) plugged in. The Raptor is totally blank, and has never been used. In fact, I am not sure if it is even spinning. :confused: After doing some searching here, I've tried some of the various steps posted, including: * Loading optimal defaults * making sure the phys SATA drives (1-4) are enabled. * trying both molex & SATA power on the Raptor - neither made a difference * even trying 2 diff sata data cables - no difference But no matter what I've done, the BIOS doesn't recognize the SATA drive. Other than the CD burner I have installed (I think it's the primary master), no other devices are plugged in besides the vidcard, 1 dimm of ram (slot 2), and a few case fans. I have 1 or 2 IDE drives I might be able to wipe clean and try out, if need be. Should I try to install windows on one of the IDE drives, and then once Windows is up and running, install the raptor? The thing is, I want the Raptor to be the one with my OS on it, and IDE drives will be for media storage... Thanks for any help!!
