System manufacturer and model?

If the SATA drive is not reflected in the BIOS...how is it that both drives are reflected at the same time?

Can you post a screenshot from Disk Management, reflecting both drives?

System manufacture and model is irrelevant but its home built if you must know, thanks for your answer I have now solved this by making the sata a storage drive and booting off the eide drive.

Thanks for sharing your solution...happy computing :thumbsup:.

System manufacturer and model are relevant for users who own OEM systems, since such systems may not include native support for SATA drives...thereby requiring the installation of SATA drivers.

Not everyone has a custom/self-built system :flowers:.
