I am unable to open the BIOS at all, to even see if the drive is listed, as it freezes as soon as I hit the set-up key. It definitely isn't listed on the IRQ screen, though.
It is impossible for SATA to be disabled, as my primary HD is one, as well, and works fine.
I tried replacing the SATA cord, and plugging it into the three other ports, to no avail. I re-checked all connections -- they look good to go. I also tried unplugging the secondary HD altogether, and the BIOS still froze upon start-up. I can do a CMOS reset, but if that doesn't work, I'm stuck.
Any other suggestions or ideas? Has this ever happened to any of you?
Any info. would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: CMOS reset didn't help.
