Hi, i am having some problems with my new system that i am building.

I have bought all the parts, and everything is being detected apart from the SATA 1TB Hard Disk Drives.

I have two 1 TB Sata Drives and they are not being detected by the BIOS or by windows installation boot disk.

Under the Bios Main Tab i see the following:

Main Settings

System Time
System Date

Primary IDE Master :[Not Detected]
Primary IDE Slave :[Not Detected]
SATA 1 :[Not Detected]
SATA 2 :[Not Detected]
SATA 3 :[Not Detected]
SATA 4 :[Not Detected]
SATA 5 :[Not Detected]
SATA 6 :[Not Detected]
SATA Configuration

System Information

Under SATA Configuration i have tried setting the drives to RAID, and IDE, i have also tried Disabling the OnChip SATA Controller with no luck in detecting the Drives.

I have never used a SATA hard Drive before so i may be setting something incorrectly in the bios.

Please bare in mind that this is a new build so i do not have a current windows installation of any kind.

Any help would be greating appreciated.

Thanks.

Two things. Make sure all of your connection are correct (I would reseat each connection including the power connectors) for the 2 SATA drives and check that the SATA Controller is set to AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface). You should be able to verify this in the Integrated Perpherals section of BIOS.

Hi, thankyou for your reply, please could you tell me why i have to set AHCI, as i have seen that option but it is under the RAID option, so i can either choose, RAID, IDE OR AHCI. What if i wanted to setup the RAID?

Please could you explain this?

Thankyou.



EDIT: i just tried enabling the AHCI and then i saved settings, and rebooted. There is still no change, the bios does not detect the Drives.
