So I have (in my opinion) a very strange problem going on with my machine.
First thing is first...my MB is an ECS C51PVGM-M. It has 2 on board sata connections. Recently i found a good deal on a 1 TB HDD.
Backed up my old OS, installed the 1 TB HDD... recovered my OS and all files to it and wiped the old 320 gig I was using and was going to set it up on the other sata for a little extra storage.
My problem is that my bios and/or windows 7 will not recognize the newly wiped 320 gig HDD on the secondary connection...at all.
If I switch the connections my bios will recognize both HDD's but wont allow me to boot into windows 7 because the main HDD now (1TB) was installed on the other connection.
I know i could back it all up to my external, switch the connections, and then restore to the 1 TB again but that takes a good 8 hours and didnt know if there MIGHT be an easier fix.
Any help is appreciated.
