I have hit f6 and put in the Abit floppy SATA drivers. It shows four different drivers and I have tried all four, all with the same results.
I had set this computer up in the past with a different SATA drive using Windows 98 and had no problems with the drive being found.
I have checked the bios and SATA RAID ROM and boot from SATA drive are enabled. I have tried it with the SATA RAID ROM disabled and with boot from PCI slot. Still no joy.
I have also tried a different power cable and a different SATA cable and have tried the second SATA port. Still get no hard drive found. I returned the drive as it appeared to be dead on arrival after all this and today I got the replacement. Everything exactly as before. No hard drive found. I know it is possible to get two new dead drives, but the chances are slim. What am I missing?
Any and all help appreciated. Thank you.
