I recently bought an SSD from Samsung and installed Windows 7 to it. Everything is running smoothly except that Windows 7, nor my BIOS seem to be able to detect my old hard drive anymore. My motherboard is Asus P8P67 Pro, I have updated it to the most current version of BIOS. It detects my SSD and DVD just fine, but not my old harddrive which is an WD20EARS, and it has another Windows 7 installed on it, in case that matters.
I've managed to have it show up: if I reset to default settings in BIOS, restarts, and then hit F8 to get into BIOS once again it WILL show up on the "choose boot"-thingy, as soon as I enter the actual BIOS it's nowhere to be found.
I have tested with different SATA-cables that I know work, and different slots that I know work (seeing as my SSD work fine with the cables/slots). If I choose to boot onto the old WD-drive, it will try to do so for 30 seconds or so (displaying a black screen with _ flashing) until finally booting on my second choice, which is the SSD. If no other device is connected, it will simply state that I need to insert a device which it can boot from.
Any help would be appreciated. I can provide pictures from the inside of my computer if you want to see how it's wired or something.
